*raising hands slowly* Is there a problem, Coding Officer?
He's talking about the kind of microbes who, when viewed through a microscope, form "TAKE US TO YOUR LEADER" text with their bodies.
Now seriously, I see an Apple-related article on a daily basis. I own no Apple devices, nor would I ever. Still, I ain't complaining, just move on to the next article.
Might help you if you do the same in relation to Microsoft-related articles.
Slowly, they're closing in the gap from Linux naming conventions
Does it work when you think of shit as pudding?
I realized that usually count of bugs is proportional to lines of code multiplied by how many people work on the project, and bug fixing speed is inversely proportional to the same variable multiplication.
Oh no, not the VHS versus Betamax all over again!
Pascal needed a paid license, C++ did not. It's as simple as that.
I'm a C beginner and I don't think curly brackets (not braces) are anything BUT readable.
Pascal is easy for me, parsing HTML and XML are no problem, parentheses are fine, but when I try making heads and tails of curly brackets I fall flat on my face.
It's under warranty and doesn't bother me as much. Not to mention I absolutely suck at small hardware tinkering.
My absolute favorite would be a scroll wheel barely poking above a middle button into which it would be embedded, allowing for button-type middle click as well as scrolling just by moving a finger up by a fraction of an inch.
Not trying to flamebait, but this looks more like a "me, oldtimer, can't adapt" thing.
Indeed, some mice have a harder to press mid-button/scroll wheel, but there are some which are easier to press. I have a G700S and the middle click requires greater finger pressure than I'd like, however I bought it because it features both step-by step scrolling and continuous, which is the feature I was looking for. At any rate, I remapped middle click to a side button too and retrained my muscle memory.
Next step: Endless Legend. Go try it, you'll likely be impressed.
1. Would infrared work just as well?
2. What happens if the phone orientation is incorrect? Light beam reaches its side or the phone lies face-up.
3. What happens if multiple phones are detected?
4. What happens if the phone is turned off?
"Computer expert" is a broad, broad definition. Nobody's a "computer expert", except in their narrow field.
So ease off with the smug. One might be an expert in their field and totally suck at another, both computer-related.
There is not reason why a distribution in general should be normal, and many of them aren't.
If they're nor large enough or random enough, yes.
Doesn't matter which frame of reference you use.
Say you go absurd and link intelligence with weight. There's still gonna be an average, a median and 50% of the population lower / higher than that. And given the very large values (full Earth population, around 7B souls), there will be normal distribution simply because there are so many data points.
