NASA Study: Ocean Abyss Has Not Warmed

Rashdot Re:Thermal capacity of rock? (295 comments)

Call me naive too, but I'm not convinced that there's a net downward movement of energy in the oceans. I'd say that the seabed overall is probably warmer than the cold water directly above it, so there should be a resulting upward transfer of energy.

Put A Red Cross PSA In Front Of the ISIS Beheading Video

Rashdot Re:Why do they want us to see it anyway? (300 comments)

What I don't get is how they can justify using modern technology like internet, and modern arms and explosives, while they claim to want to live a 'purified' life like people who lived more than a thousand years ago. Their life is a lie, but alas they're too illogical to understand that.

Wiring Programmers To Prevent Buggy Code

Rashdot For me it's reversed (116 comments)

Years ago I discovered that I used to slow down and struggle with simple things, soon after making a mistake (a bug) that I obviously missed. So I learned to go back and review my most recent code whenever I sensed that I began struggling. It appears that in those cases I subconsciously registered the mistakes. Of course you can also introduce bugs while happily coding along, but whenever you falter for no apparent reason, just review your most recent code for mistakes.
