True, but these guys are in Colorado. We get maybe a dozen cloudy or hazy days a year. And it's a semi-desert, no muggy days.

Yeah, it might not work so well in the Mississippi valley region.

OTOH, if they're shifting to a frequency of infrared not absorbed by H2O, it might not care about puny water vapour.

Comment Re:Tell us, Einstein, what is Rust written in? (Score 3, Insightful) 236

Uh, nope.

From WIkipedia:

The language grew out of a personal project by Mozilla employee Graydon Hoare, who stated that the project was possibly named after the rust family of fungi.[11] Mozilla began sponsoring the project in 2009[10] and announced it in 2010.[12] The same year, work shifted from the initial compiler (written in OCaml) to the self-hosting compiler written in Rust.[13] Known as rustc, it successfully compiled itself in 2011.[14] rustc uses LLVM as its back end.

(emphasis added)

However, I'll grant that LLVM is written in C++.
