Neotrantor Concepts (565 comments)

To stay on top now, you have to be aware of the advanced concepts coming out of functional programming languages. But moreover, you have to get good enough with those languages that it starts to effect how you write java/c#/c++ etc etc. I recommend getting down with Haskell or lisp and choose some industrial languages after you're comfortable with them.

Reviews: Star Trek

Neotrantor Re:Fans are disconnected (544 comments)

you're sort of contradicting yourself. Berman was calling the shots for nearly 20 of those 40 years. don't you see that it's sort of sucked (except for ds9) since gene died? why can't jj do whatever he wants if half of star trek actually sucks?

Ubuntu 9.04 Is As Slick As Win7, Mac OS X

Neotrantor Re:Isn't it strange (871 comments)

it's not so much as crappy programming, but developers needing the system to handle so many tasks that they used to have to deal with themselves. thus, there is bloat in modern operating systems.
