The lines of code immediately after the second 'goto fail;' up to the 'fail' label are unreachable. There is no label or closing brace after the second goto fail, so how would it get executed?
He should have asked:
"Have you stopped spying on Congress?"
For some reason, I always hate it when people choose an explicit
if (boolean == true)
rather than just
I'm glad those people have to hunt for extra bugs
Absolutely! If you give the boolean variable a good name it makes the code read logically:
If doesn't fly and go underwater, it's not Supercar!
We use the Lava Flow methodology.
VMS VERSION 4.1: (An official DEC memo)
Please stop submitting SPR's. This is our system. We designed it,
we build it, and we use it more than you do. If there are some
features you think might be missing, if the system isn't as
effective as you think it could be, TOUGH. Give it back, we don't
need you. See figure 1.
(slashdot whitespace filter won't allow the ASCII art middle finger graphic that should be here)
Forget about your silly problems, let's take a look at some of the
features of the VMS operating system.
1) Options. We've got lots of them. So many in fact, that you need
two strong people to carry the documentation around. So many
that it will be a cold day in hell before half of them are used.
So many that you are probably not going to do your work right
anyway. However, the number of options isn't all that important,
because we picked some interesting values for the options and
2) Defaults. We put a lot of thought into our defaults. We like
them. If we didn't, we would have made something else be the
default. So keep your cotten-picking hands off our defaults.
Don't touch. Consider them mandatory. "Mandatory defaults" has
a nice ring to it. Change them and your system crashes, tough.
See figure 1.
3) Language Processors. They work just fine. They take in source,
and often produce object files as a reward for your efforts. You
don't like the code? Too bad! You can even try to call
operating system services from them. For any that you can't, use
the assembler like we do. We spoke to the language processor
developers about this, they think a lot like we do. They said
"See figure 1.".
4) Debuggers. We've got debuggers, one we support and one we use.
You shouldn't make mistakes anyway, it is a waste of time. We
don't want to hear anything about debuggers, we're not
interested. See figure 1.
5) Error logging. Ignore it. Why give yourself an ulcer? You don't
want to give us the machine to get the problem fixed and we probably
can't do it anyway. Oh, and if something breaks between 17:00 and
18:00 or 9:30 and 10:30 or 11:30 and 13:30 or 14:30 and 15:30 don't
waste your time calling us, we're out. See figure 1.
6) Command Language. We designed it ourselves, it's perfect. We
like it so much we put our name on it, DCL - Digital's Command
Language. In fact we're so happy with it, we designed it once
for each of our operating systems. We even try to keep it the
same from release to release, sometimes we blow it though. See
7) Real Time Performance. We got it. Who else could have done such
a good job? So the system seems sluggish with all those priority
18 processes, no problem, just make them priority one. Anyway,
realtime isn't important anymore like it used to be. We changed
our groups name to get rid of the word realtime, we told all our
realtime users to see figure 1 a long time ago.
In conclusion, stuff your SPR. Love VMS or leave it, but DON'T complain.
I still haven't perfected the skill of omniscience. (This is of course, impossible).
How do you know?
has become the US Congress. Never have I seen so many get paid so much to do so little. They better wake up soon, otherwise a torch bearing mob may did it for them.
We need to push them off the physical cliff!
I think the mobile phones are the easy part, the hard part will be the 'other devices' which presumably will include landlines.
From the Fine Article:
"Rural phone companies are the victim here,” Steve Head says. “They charge a higher rate to terminate calls as it costs more for them. Shoreham Tel gets beat up because everyone calls them and says something is wrong with your system, but it’s not. We’ve been through all of their lines and equipment and there is nothing wrong with it; it’s the least-cost routing carriers."

Not sure what you mean by "kicked to the curb", but OS X Java is still maintained by Apple.
Not completely. Apple maintains Java for Mac OS X through version 6. Oracle took over starting with version 7. It's not clear how long Apple will continue to provide updates for version 6, though.
Apple stopped including it as a default install with Lion (Mac OS X 10.7), I believe.
But instead of getting each of two kids an iPad, a single Kindle Fire for both is viable...
I'm guessing that you don't have two (or more) kids. Share is typically not in their vocabulary.
