Comment Electrons (Score 1) 460

So how does this work? Is a domestic consumer is given an electron which has passed through a wind generator, there is going to be hell to pay, but a different pool of electrons must be used to export power from the state.

And sure, with a mix of energy sources, local consumption can be less than generation from coal.

Comment Re:They took the worst part of Python (Score 1) 187

Working in C years back I had to fix some code from a guy who pasted 1500 lines from a different application into the middle of an if statement block. He didn't even have the decency to wrap a function definition around it. It was just splurged into the code. It seemed to work fine but even with the parenthesis matching function in nedit it was hard to work out what block I was in.

In that case python would break, because the compiler reads the nesting level the way humans read it.
