If you're hitting disk cache that often, you need more memory.
Dunno about that...i think the AVR instruction set is probably faster at 8Mhz then an 8086 at the same speed; it's at the very least equivalent. The x86 instruction set really is a mess...
Harrison Ford can't act. He's a one trick pony, but it's a great trick.
Seriously, compare Han Solo to Indiana Jones to Deckard to the Fugitive guy. It's all just harrison ford being harrison ford.
Casting Harrison Ford is like casting Sean Connery, you cast him because you want the character to be like that guy rather than the other way around.
My favourite Sean Connery role was The Hunt for Red October, where he became the world's only Russian with a Scottish accent.
My favorite was The Highlander, where he was a Spaniard with a Scottish accent. in scotland. With a Scott who had some other crazy "non-specifically foreign" accent.
Wish i could upvote this, but I already commented. It describes exactly my feelings about lisp.
C is older then many other languages.
Ugly and Complex is better than Ugly and Complex and Inconsistent.
This. Lisp is a beautiful language. The fact that it's not taught and used is a serious problem in the programming profession. Every programmer has the potential to be better, just by learning Lisp (not even using it!)
Sometimes wounds itch. When you scratch them, they break open and fester. C++ scratches exactly these itches.
To be fair, she shouldn't have gone to Saudi Arabia in the first place. no one should.
Don't business's hire competent IT guys?
In my experience? Yes they do. they also hire a bunch of incompetent ones. its a crap shoot.
This is so very true. Learned this the hard way a few years back... It's very rare that stock options are worth anything.
Why should programmers be any different?
Eh, a little bikeshedding makes everyone feel included. I'm all for it.
Correction noted. Thanks!
My mortgage costs more then my disposable income. Disposable income is what's left over after i pay all my bills, right? so comparing my mortgage bill to disposable income is a fallacy at best...i can choose to allocate more funds toward my mortgage or more towards being 'disposable'... It all depends on lifestyle.
