My favorite is how you append a value to a vector. push_back?!
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
And especially watch Mr. Meyers's talk "The Last Thing D Needs" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48kP_Ssg2eY). tl;dw version: The last thing D needs is to require someone like Scott Meyers; don't make D so perversely convoluted that one can make a living explaining it to people.
The key word: "countless".
C++ has made the same choice over and over again: "When you come to a fork in the road, take it."
"And [Stroustrup] said “no” to no one. He put every feature in that language that ever existed. It wasn’t cleanly designed—it was just the union of everything that came along." --Ken Thompson
A teacher whose name I've forgotten but to whom I am very much indebted suggested that I go to a series of lectures and hands-on sessions at the University of Oklahoma in the spring of 1971. I was in tenth grade.
On Saturdays we were guided through BASIC and the fundamentals of numerical analysis by Professor Richard Vernon Andree, and one evening a week we could sit at one of four ASR-33 Teletypes connected to a Data General Supernova running a time-shared BASIC. It changed my life. In my junior year, not having access to a computer, I wrote programs in a notebook, which I wish I still had. As a senior I took vo-tech and learned about unit record machines, the RCA 301, and then RPG on an IBM 370. I never looked back.
Enjoying Bodhi Linux; e17 is very nice. Glad to hear about GNOME 3.8 and "classic mode", but I have no great urge to try it out. Perhaps someday.
No, it's not. e17, despite its long stay in "alpha" stage, has been quite usable for years. The clusterflop that is GNOME 3 finally pushed me from experimenting with e17 to moving to Bodhi Linux and using e17 pretty much full time.

Actually that's not true (about what Ubuntu recommends). From https://help.ubuntu.com/community/32bit_and_64bit: "Unless you have specific reasons to choose 32-bit, we recommend 64-bit to utilise the full capacity of your hardware."
In C, it's pretty simple, though of course if you want a discriminated union you'll probably end up stuffing it into a struct along with a field that tells you how to interpret the union.
Darn! I forgot to add ["Don't Worry, Be Happy" starts to play] to the last one.

I can't let you order that pizza. You're overweight.
Do you really want directions to Hooters, Dave? What would your wife think?
"Spanish Sky" is a sad song, and you just cancelled a reservation for two. I will play you something happy.
A nanny state is bad enough. I don't want a nanny phone.
I think that we will end up with individual reporters posting to the web, supported by subscription. If you have access to a copy of Marc Stiegler's Earthweb, read it, paying particular attention to the part where the reporter interviews "The Predictor".
