Kickasso Re:really? (126 comments)

Bzzzt! wrong. If I trust you, I will verify your work. If I don't trust you, I won't even bother to look at it.

Trust is about honesty, not about infallibility.

Kickasso It is harder than you think. (330 comments)

printf("Copied %n file%s\n", n_files, n_files > 1 ? "s" : "");

There are languages with more than two grammatical numbers. There are languages that use different word order with different numbers. You need to redesign your simple and easy printf statement to accommodate them, and the outcome is bound to be anything but simple and easy.

Simulation Using LRO Data Shows More Locations With Ice on the Moon

Kickasso Re:Ice "may" be there (55 comments)

1 km altitude? Sure, that will work. Just need to tell the engineers that whoever crashes the satellite into a mountain, pays for it out of his own pocket.

Some Hotspot Operators Secretly Intercept, Insert Ads In Web Pages

Kickasso Re:without the knowledge of the site visitor (273 comments)

"my ISP serves me their self-signed cert instead of Slashdot's real one."

You see a page/popup that says "this certificate is bogus, somebody is fooling around with your connection". From that point on, if you decide to proceed to the site, you are your own worst enemy.
