No thats not the Fedora way. The Fedora way is replacing working feature filled software with buggy software that barely solves the mandatory features just because it has some cool new feature. Then they push a gazillion man hours into that crap until it becomes very good and then replaces it when users starts to love it.

Ask Slashdot: Robotics or Electronic Kits For Wounded Veterans? 115

An anonymous reader writes I am currently a combat veteran in the care of the VA Hospital. A lot of veterans here suffer from PTSD and other injuries related to combat and trauma. As part of the healing process, the VA finds it good that we take up hobbies such as art or music, and they supply us kits and stuff to put together and paint. This is great, but many of us younger veterans have an interest in robotics and electronics. Do you know of some good and basic robotic and electronic kits that can be ordered or donated to Veterans out there? Any information would be appreciated.

Comment Re:+ operator for string concat? (Score 1) 729

Yes "clever" operator overloading comes up high in my list.
Scripting languages are full of it like in Pike: str/" " Divide a string by space to get an array of the words.
But I dislike it way more when operator overloading abuse is done in user code than when it is a language construct.

I like the tape measure choice.
It shows how advanced constructions you can do, and the limitations of such advanced constructions. As I understand it, it is fully functional right out of the printer. This is a little bit more advanced than "possible" but thats why it is cool.
