Minecraft Creator Halts Plans For Oculus Version Following Facebook Acquisition

CodeReign Bah, it's @notch (300 comments)

@notch fails at life and would have halted development due to being slightly cumbersome in the near future anyway, just like he did with all the other promised features.

-RIP minecraft alpha.

Facebook Introduces Hack: Statically Typed PHP

CodeReign Re:So ... they re-invented Asp.Net? (230 comments)

ASP.NET requires a heavy application server.

As a Java EE developer I'd advocate the benefits of proper application servers/infrastructure but ASP/Java are slow to release languages. You need infrastructure and planning while PHP is a great language for systems that don't have huge reliance requirements and need the project done yesterday. (and even then obviously Facebook has managed to make it very reliable).

Additionally ASP.NET (with C# as you didn't specify) is statically typed. Even the "var" type is resolved at compile time to the base class of whatever it's first instantiation returns.

I doubt it, they'd calculate latency from tower to tower and analyze the data on the fly to pull out more accurate results. (that's how I read it anyway)

That is incorrect. You always own the source unless you are providing work for hire. Eg. a photographer owns the photos even if the were shot for a company.

Network Engineering Q&A Site Launched

CodeReign Re: Not what it used to be (29 comments)

The obvious question beccons: "where is the replacement".

I've certainly seen this trend and been filled with rage and anger after a great/helpful question was closed for being open ended. I believe it had 4 possible resolutions based on my knowledge of the subject matter and I would have loved to have seen those 4 answers posted.

450 Million Lines of Code Can't Be Wrong: How Open Source Stacks Up

CodeReign Re:Defects fixed for proprietary may differ. (209 comments)

So hows that Kool-Aid?

It's delightful but you seem to have missed the point. I am saying that people are free to fix bugs at their leisure for FOSS projects, for enterprise applications you are not permitted (usually) to fix a bug because it exists. You have to prove that there is a value add from fixing the bug and that value add cannot be that it makes your life easier (unless you can provide quantitative measures of productivity increase)
