Lot's of commenters with posting as "anonymous coward". Hoping for a job at Google someday?
Speaking as one who is tired of sorting through consumer grade routers every few years, I'd love it if 90% of these "smart router" crapware products just went away. Someone said that the best technology is that which disappears from the user's consciousness, but somehow router manufacturers think that their best play is to worm their way into your attention like an insecure child "Hey, look what I can do! Look at me me me!
Yeah, I'm DLink and look what I can do. Real smooth.
What I need is a simple, CGI interface to set up basic routing parameters and WiFi that goes more than 20 feet and forget all about the router. I would actually pay up for that.
That's what buffered files are supposed to do: make slow disk writes appear as if they are as performant as memory writes.
So in a nutshell, they compared the cost of the most inefficient method of in-memory string concatenation versus an efficient method of in-memory string concatenation: the memory in the latter case being a buffered file writer. Lololol!!!
Maybe code should be written by Political Science majors from now on. It's important that the right categories take credit.
Not sure why Andrus Nomm is charged with anything. Was he responsible for business decisions at the company?
If he was just a developer, I'm wondering if we'll start seeing a more prosecutions against developers working for a DOJ targeted company just to get them to roll on their bosses. In this case, is he any more responsible for other peoples' file sharing than Kim Dotcom's secretary?
As for his own illegal download, yeah, him and about 2 billion other people, (probably also including Kim Dotcom's secretary).
His assets have been seized, he only gets enough from the authorities to cover his living expenses and his own legal fees. He cannot afford to hire lawyers for other people.

Home is behind, the world ahead. And there are many paths to tread...
Let this be a lesson to all of the architects out there who have a tendency to over-generalize, even to the point of abstracting away useful features.
These are good points, thanks for elucidating.
Not handling hyphens, minus signs or whatever: it doesn't surprise me in the least.
Why don't eBook publishers use a typesetting system based on TeX or LaTeX? Good grief. I was formatting complex mathematical formulas and pretty printing them to Postscript and PDF before the lot of you were born. And not just text with mere hyphens.
Is there something I'm missing, or are eBooks a major step backwards in formatting? Really. I can't tell you how many computer science and mathematics eBooks I've returned to Amazon or B&N because of the sh***y formatting of code and math formulas. Not just when eBooks first came out, but on and on, year after year, and it doesn't get better. It strikes me as the laziness of corporations.
