Reddit Javascript Exploit Spreading Virally

JoeShmoe950 Re:html tag to disable active content (239 comments)

No, the entire point is that any exploit would need to know the "unlock" code in order to operate, yet the unlock code is generated when the page is sent to the browser, long after the exploit has been submitted.

Firefox 4.0 Goes Chrome, New UI In Q4 2010

JoeShmoe950 Re:Never have I ever... (556 comments)

I'll agree. The whole split move assign system seemed really powerful to me. I wish that was more of a standard GUI feature, but aside from that, I found the interface nonstandard and somewhat quirky. Not a good example of having a custom GUI

Open Source Languages Rumble At OSCON

JoeShmoe950 Re:what does open mean? (197 comments)

You're just making stuff up now. In no way are PHP and LISP mid level languages. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Low-level_programming_language -- Only machine code and ASM are low level languages, everything else is high level.

LISP is about as high level as you can get, with garbage collection, macros, and more abstractions than most other languages combined.
PHP, likewise, is interpreted, and even it's array datatype is quite a bit above the machine level memory array, supporting dynamic resizing and the like.

It's not about what you consider "low-level" and "high-level." There are definitions for these terms...

People Prefer Angry-Faced Cars

JoeShmoe950 Re:As a non-driver (473 comments)

This works great on the highway, but try it down a normal road. Drivers tend to have a nasty habit of slowing to five below the limit when they think they have a cop behind them...

JoeShmoe950 writes "Write programs in English, and this page translates them into Javascript and then runs them. An example program is as follows:
Make radius be the result of asking "What is the radius of the circle?"
Make area be 3.1415 times radius to the power of 2.
Make area look nice.
Say "The area of the circle is the value of area."

Other examples include a number guessing game and an "RPG.""
