GuldKalle Re:Summary is a troll (691 comments)

Why Charles Stross Wants Bitcoin To Die In a Fire

GuldKalle Re:Summary is a troll (691 comments)

Stolen Adobe Passwords Were Encrypted, Not Hashed

GuldKalle Re:Am I imagining it? (230 comments)

Not really. You could still test all users against the top 100 passwords in a reasonable amount of time. After that, test if their mail accounts have the same password.

If Java Is Dying, It Sure Looks Awfully Healthy

GuldKalle Re:Scala is a scripting language? (577 comments)

Java can run in a console, too. Does scala have an equivalent to python or javascript eval()?

If Java Is Dying, It Sure Looks Awfully Healthy

GuldKalle Re:Scala is a scripting language? (577 comments)

That doesn't mean it's not compiled. It just means that it's compiled automatically and possibly saved to a temporary location.

Canada To Stop Producing Pennies In 2013

GuldKalle Re:Advertised price 9.96 = 10.00 (362 comments)

Book balancing is not a problem when your cash registers can handle the rounding. Many countries use rounding, so it's likely implemented in the register already.
