Comment Re:Without the use of a loop!? (Score 1) 438

Maybe if you forgot that this is a "C" program and tried to build using C++ which would produce mangled names. This works in VS 2008 Express with the modification from an empty console application to use the C compiler instead of C++.

int rand(void); int printf(const char * f, ...); int main() { ten: printf("%c", (rand() % 2) ? 47 : 92); goto ten; }

GCC also compiles the above code to an a.out without further modification if you place it in a file named "main.c" and run "gcc main.c". Or even:

echo 'int rand(void); int printf(const char * f, ...); int main() { ten: printf("%c", (rand() % 2) ? 47 : 92); goto ten; }' | gcc -x c -

Comment Re:What's average Netflix datarate? (Score 3, Insightful) 538

You're arguing semantics. You apparently haven't been seeing the commercials about getting movies /before/ Netflix through U-Verse. U-Verse competes with Internet video services. They provide a mix of free samples and paid downloads on demand.

It doesn't matter if they deliver it by carrier pigeon, fleet of station wagons or multicast over twisted pairs of copper. They are providing the same demand based service in addition to their broadcast streams.

Not that it matters, but they also push a DVR service as well that can stream from a central DVR to STBs (setup-top box). The DVR's search feature integrates the broadcast lineup (so you can record it) and on demand offerings (so you can buy it).

If you didn't have to work so hard, you'd have more time to be depressed.
