Tim Cook: "I'm Proud To Be Gay"

JAlexoi Re:So what? (764 comments)

Therefore saying "I'm straight" or "I have a boyfriend/girlfriend" is saying - I fuck people of opposite sex. Also sex is a certain biological attribute, not only intercourse. But I guess you're 14 and ain't getting any.

Tim Cook: "I'm Proud To Be Gay"

JAlexoi Re:So what? (764 comments)

Therefore when people publicly announce a pregnancy - that is nothing more than gloating that they had great sex.

Tim Cook: "I'm Proud To Be Gay"

JAlexoi Re:Gay? (764 comments)

I'm yet to see a straight guy be shamed for being straight. Many are shamed for having a lot of random sexual encounters, but they are quite proud of being straight and fucking many girls.

Steve Ballmer Gets Billion-Dollar Tax Write-Off For Being Basketball Baron

JAlexoi Re:So the taxpayer pays for overage, got it (255 comments)

Can we PLEASE stop acting like letting people keep their own money is somehow the same as the tax payers giving money to "the ev0l rich"???

Fine. If that's the case, would these "evil rich" do us all a favour and pay for the overwhelming publicly funded protection they get?

VK CEO Fired, Says Company Under Kremlin Control

JAlexoi Re:Surprised? (149 comments)

Communism arose from the notions of self sustaining communes. It's not scalable, but is very widespread.
Your family is communist. The Amish are communists. However, having the whole country communist dos not work because we don't trust each other.

If Java Is Dying, It Sure Looks Awfully Healthy

If Java Is Dying, It Sure Looks Awfully Healthy

JAlexoi Re:Android, Objective-C and Tiobe Index (577 comments)

C/C++ are great when it comes to highly predictable data flows or very small modules. Otherwise it's extreme cost of constant profiling of the code to actually identify the changing patterns that cause slowdowns. That being said, C/C++ can be much more than 2x performance of a JVM.

And what 32 bit integer is not a 32 bit integer in C/C++ or Java?

If Java Is Dying, It Sure Looks Awfully Healthy

JAlexoi Re:Wake me up... (577 comments)

1: Those bounds checks come at a cost of having overflows getting in the way of actually checking bounds. An overflow of an unsigned value results in just a small number... that means that you still have to check the lower bounds no matter what.
2: They store the same number of values as unsigned, it's just handling of those values and comparison operations differ. A signed and unsigned 32bit integers store 2^32 values.
3: Crypto algorithms do not operate numerically, thus 2147483647 * 100 will yield exactly the same result for uint32 and int32 as much as any crypto algorithm is concerned.
4: Therefore you send 2147483648 in binary form as 4 bytes = 0x80000000

If Java Is Dying, It Sure Looks Awfully Healthy

JAlexoi Re:Wake me up... (577 comments)

The fact that lack of unsigned integers has not stopped Java shows that the designers made the right choice. If you need to have a value larger than 2bn you will probably not be satisfied with 4bn and will need a larger type. And in general, you rarely need to operate numerically without a sign.

JAlexoi Re:Android, Objective-C and Tiobe Index (577 comments)

As a server-side tool it has been getting taken over by Ruby/Rails, Python and the stuff mentioned in the OP.

I hope you are kidding here, because that is far from the case. Java is still the de-facto language for most server-side applications. RoR never outgrew it's hipster background. It has been 7 years since RoR had it's hype peak... The hype waned and RoR is still a rarity.

Java 8 Developer Preview Released

JAlexoi Re:default methods for interfaces (189 comments)

Your assumption of the intention for the default methods is incorrect. They were a result of mixin envy, not adding new default implementations for future proofing.
Java developers tend not to have issues with future proofing for new functions in interfaces.

Java 8 Developer Preview Released

JAlexoi Re:default methods for interfaces (189 comments)

there are very strict limitations to the implementation. The concrete class hierarchy has the final say. Thus you can't provide default implementations of hashCode, equals and toString.

Google Patents "Scroogling"

JAlexoi Re:I miss Scroogle :( (135 comments)

Actually that information will help greatly in sorting the emails. Some people I'm in contact with routinely send me stupid email and happen to be business associates. I do not want to go through their cupcake bake-off blabber, to see that they have sent me estimates for projects.

Google Patents "Scroogling"

JAlexoi Re:I miss Scroogle :( (135 comments)

In short - Google offers no more information than you can't already gather from other sources, concerning low volume demographics.
Consider that you are targeting a DnD players in Boulder(CO), going through Google is the least efficient tools that you could use to get personal details about your target group.
Targeting any group larger than that is pretty much useless and you can't practically gather any valuable personal information.

FT: Nokia vows to exact revenge on rivals

JAlexoi JAlexoi writes  |  more than 5 years ago

JAlexoid writes "As we know Apple with it's iPhone have skyrocketed to be the third worlds largest maker of smartphones. The main reason for their success is the interface based on a touchscreen. Where has been Nokia, the worlds largest maker of cellphones and smartphones?
According to Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, Nokia's chief executive, said: "If you talk about touch, we have been a follower, yes," Mr Kallasvuo said. "But we are now coming with a vengeance."
Aren't we all interested what Nokia has got up their sleeve?"

LSE reaches extreme reliability? Not so...

JAlexoi JAlexoi writes  |  more than 7 years ago

JAlexoid (1085785) writes "Remember the resent Microsoft's series on high reliability of their software? If not, you can find it on www.sys-con.com pages. One of them was a statement that London Stock Exchange(LSE) chose Windows Server over Linux because of its reliability. But this Wednesday begs to differ: "Traders are braced for a nervous morning on Thursday after the London Stock Exchange's much-vaunted high-speed trading system ground to a halt on Wednesday afternoon, forcing the exchange to wipe clean its electronic price display system and leave part of its daily closing auction incomplete."(read more @ FT.com, and I am sure lots of other places)
Although the glitch is not officially attributed to Mircrosoft's products, this still is not good PR for the HA capabilities of Microsoft's products. Since they do sell "highly integrated" software. And both Microsoft and LSE never did hide the fact that together they created a "marvelous" system."
