Digital rights is an ugly theft of words implying the rights of people, rather than the rights of greed ie digital wrongs.
It's not theft, it's just digital words management.
Slashdot is... going down the toilet?
No, because Betteridge.
Only because Fortran stores multidimensional arrays in column-major order, while every other language in the known universe uses row-major order.
Julia is another that I know of, not surprisingly because it continues the scientific computing traditions of Fortran in many ways. From TFM:
Multidimensional arrays in Julia are stored in column-major order
I want a phone that is 2X as thick as available today and has a 4 day battery life. Single day battery life today is only because of stupidity. we should be at the 1 week of battery like we had with the Razr flip phone.
I want an android, i.e. a humanlike robot that can take care of household chores. Not some stupid old phone.
(Google threatened to sue a robotics company called Zendroid because of naming similarities with their phone software. I guess the meaning of words doesn't matter any more.)

I originally pledged to vote for Sanders, however after he conceded victory to Clinton I switched my ticket to the green party and voted for Jill Stein because she pledged to reign in wall street and protect US Jobs from H1B abuse and trade deregulation.
nice try though.
the theories are both supported by experiments, they usually don't play well together, forcing physicists to consider a new theory that will allow them both to be correct at the same time...
In relativity, the entire notion of "at the same time" depends on the observer. So I guess for some scientists, GR and QM play well together, for others not so well.
My stereo headset becomes the active, default output once I plug it in, and the speakers assume that role as soon as I unplug it.
Back in the day, this used to be a hardwired thing, using tiny switch elements in the socket. In my current systems, the ALSA driver presents an auto-mute feature for when you plug in the headset. (The headset will go mute again when you unplug it, using a different kind of magic.) Now if you need a userspace daemon to do this, does it mean the kernel driver should become a lot simpler?
If I'd known computer science was going to be like this, I'd never have given up being a rock 'n' roll star. -- G. Hirst
