Comment Scientific breakthrough. (Score 1) 305

The analysis of numerous pulses registered in our experiments showed that the dolphins took turns in producing [sentences] and did not interrupt each other, which gives reason to believe that each of the dolphins listened to the other's pulses before producing its own. Now if they could just teach that to my spouse...

I wish I had mod points to mod you up. Much more accurate then parent. Rust is alive and well. Check this out this app written in Rust: https://ethcore.io/parity.html and I can't wait for Servo, it's going to leapfrog all the other browsers in performance and reliability and security. https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

He also says he had to install a 240V socket it in his garage because apparently though you can charge it on 120V in a pinch, apparently it can cause damage to the batteries. That's according to Nissan.

I have never heard this and am considering a Leaf (time frame is next year). I was planning to 120v charge so I did a little googling and still can't find it. Not saying it's incorrect, but it seems odd I haven't heard of it. I actually heard rumors of the opposite... fast charging was worse.

Adopting.... yeah right. More like embracing and extending. According to the handy dandy MS handbook, the next step is extinguish. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E... I'm not sure what the real agenda is yet but TypeScript and .NET seem to be their weapons of choice. Hey, if they can develop some great products and compete without reaching for the monopoly hammer, I'm all for it. However, history has shown that MS uses their monopolistic position to eliminate competition and then sit on a the sub-par product for years.

Comment Re: Tabs vs Spaces (Score 4, Insightful) 428

This debate only happened because some programmers stopped thinking about the indentation abstraction. You shouldn't be thinking in terms of spaces vs tabs. Instead you should be thinking in levels of indentation for blocks. Indentation is not some technique to make your code look pretty, it's there to show a clear separation of logic, loops, blocks etc. Code is art, just not Ascii art. One keystroke per indentation is the simplest and most efficient.
