But this seems to me like overkill. A mosquito net works and is proven and costs very very little.
And hey, there actually already are charitable initiatives for this. http://www.nothingbutnets.net/
1M from the Gates Foundation could probably buy enough mosquito nets to cover the whole of Africa.
Not to split hairs, but that's a genuine off-by-0.01 error right there.
Yeah, it isn't completely random random, because of all the filtering done to ensure the randomly-generated words are part of the original text. Sure the words are generated randomly, but reducing them and checking for membership, and then checking to see if they're in the source kinda ruins the whole point.
I started with Pascal, so the most influential book for me is Walter Savitch's "Turbo Pascal: An Introduction to the Art and Science of Programming."
It's the best book on learning to program that i've ever read and it's still the yardstick by which i compare other entry-level programming books. It's very clear, detailed, informative, and sensible. The fun quotes in every section are an added bonus.
Thank you for slashdot. It is the first site i open when i go online.
And to all the smart nerds who have made me laugh or experienced enlightenment, thank you for making slashdot what it is.
You're talking about DVD discs in the xbox.
I find their search results annoying a lot of times. For example the engine would insist on a spelling that is different but apparently more well-known than what i typed.

Yo dawg i herd you like searching so i put a google in your google so you can search while you search.
#2 - You're probably going to be disappointed, because it is already integrated, just like the login is already uniform across all services.
I suspect you automatically become signed up to google+ the moment somebody sends you an invitation.
Way offtopic, but hello Cliff! I love your book and re-read it every 2-3 years! You are fucking awesome!
However, a dentist selling honey as a tooth preservative? Might be a good business plan.
Seems kind of ironic to me. In effect he's killing his market by helping people take better care of their teeth which, if everybody in the world did, would render dentists largely unnecessary in the first place. A better, more evil, if you will, business plan would be to hand out free sweets to patients on their way out. >:-)
I've used quite a number of OS GUIs over the years but the one i've been using for 6 years straight now is fluxbox 1.0. It's the best damn GUI i've ever used.
Seriously, i don't get all the fuss. I got about 8 applications open, iLife stuff, Garage Band with a work in progress containing 42 audio tracks, word processing, and a few terminals compiling GNU stuff. No cra
