Ask Slashdot: Are Timed Coding Tests Valuable?

Ohrion Re:I dunno... (776 comments)

This differs depending on which browser you're writing for. On my version of Firefox, this is the most efficient:

var array = [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9];
var length = array.length;
for (length -= 2; length > -1; length -= 1)
array.splice(length, 1);

This is according to

RIM CEO: 'There's Nothing Wrong With the Company'

Ohrion Re:BB10 will NOT save RIM (230 comments)

It might be cool, but it's also too little and too late. They've already alienated the majority of developers that would be writing apps for this platform.

Ten Cops Can't Recover Police Chief's Son's iPhone

Ohrion Re:That's the police for you (277 comments)

Find my iPhone will play a tone for 2 minutes at max volume, whether the device is in silent more or not. You can also wipe or put a pass-code on the device remotely. The thief, however, could either disable that feature before you get a chance to use it, or simply turn the device completely off.

FBI Caught On Camera Returning Seized Server

Ohrion Re:So, they returned a server (267 comments)

Did they also have a warrant to enter the premises and install a now untrusted server back onto a private network without even alerting owners of said network? It sucks to have your stuff seized. It also sucks to have your stuff tampered with.

Free as in beer: Beer is a physical object. When you get something "Free as in beer", you're literally getting something for free. Free as in speech: Free speech is an ideal. When something is "Free as in speech", it's a freedom that is being granted.

Chief NSA Lawyer Hints That NSA May Be Tracking US Citizens

Ohrion Re:Very complicated (213 comments)

In court? Spying agencies don't need to bother with court. They can get information to the right people to effect the change they desire.

DOJ: We Can Force You To Decrypt That Laptop

Ohrion Re:I don't recall... (887 comments)

They can already do this. If the court orders you to decrypt your HD (or do pretty much anything else) and you refuse, the judge can hold you in contempt of court for a varying amount of time depending on the laws in your area. The most extreme length of time I can find for the USA, is the case against Chadwick, imprisoned for 9 years on contempt. I doubt it will be too long before this occurs in regards to decryption, if it hasn't already.

Hey Baby!

Ohrion Ohrion writes  |  more than 9 years ago My wife had our second child early last week. Our newborn daughter's name is Sophia, and she is extremely beautiful. Sure, I know it's said, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder", but my daughter is truly beautiful. Of course, I say (AND MEAN) that about both my daughters, this one is just new. :) I'd better get back to work now that my break is almost over. Hopefully I can get some more done before the sleep deprivation causes me to loose consciousness...
