Dropbox TOS Includes Broad Copyright License

aLEczapKA Meh (213 comments)

Removing my shit and uninstalling dropbox as I type this.
Dropxbox is nothing but convenient and lazy way to get your data in places.
Even if this shit I copy around is irrelevant and 'cheap' fuck this license.

Geocentrists Convene To Discuss How Galileo Was Wrong

aLEczapKA Re:It's really a moot question (1027 comments)

It doesn't. Everything moves away from us, and galaxies that are twice as far move twice as fast.
Now if you'd be in one of those galaxies that moves away from us, and you'd look around you'd notice exactly the same thing: everything moves away from you, and galaxies twice as far move twice as fast.

So in a sense, you could think that you are in the center of the universe.

But we all know that in the center (exactly in the center) is Eternium ^^

Programming Things I Wish I Knew Earlier

aLEczapKA Re:Comment your code (590 comments)

If you need to comment your code you did something wrong and you should refactor it.

Inventor of C++ when asked 'How do you debug your code?', said: 'I don't, if I have to debug the code to understand it, it means the code is wrong and I rewrite it'.

Great book on the subject Clean Code: A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship by Robert C. Martin.

Comets Probably Seeded Earth's Nitrogen Atmosphere

aLEczapKA Re:Get up to date on planetary formation theory (110 comments)

As a result, the Sun was ~25% dimmer 4 billion years ago than it is now.
http://dumbscientist.com/archives/the-faint-young-sun-paradox/

This would suggest that 'snow-line' might have been much closer the to earth... I'd say 25% closer?

I've read somewhere that the 'snow-line' is a place where the comets are born. Pulled by the gravitational forces as our solar system travels around the milky way, they got 'pushed' or 'bounced' towards our sun.

MS Says Windows 7 Will Run DirectX 10 On the CPU

aLEczapKA SciFI? (503 comments)

As stupid as the idea might sound at first, what if in say.. ten or twenty years people come up with new kind of CPUs.. so powerful that specific one-task-optimized hardware won't be necessary anymore ?

I know that tendency is to move to hardware to have it faster, but what if, quantum computers become real (or any new type of technology), and assuming they gonna be hell of a fast machines... wouldn't be it faster, easier and cheaper to just write software then to do the research, development, design, production etc... all that involves creating hardware....?

Search For the Tomb of Copernicus Reaches an End

aLEczapKA Re:From TFA: (243 comments)

The sun is the center of the universe? I though the sun orbited the Milkey Way Galaxy's central black hole?

Well, almost 500 years ago, people thought our Solar System was the Universe.
The geocentric view had been dominant since the time of Aristotle.
He wasn't the first to come up with the idea that our system is heliocentric.
However he was the first one who came out with the mathematical model of a heliocentric system.
The idea which was later picked up Kepler, who laid foundation for the Newton's theory of universal gravitation, which was picked up by Einstein later. (really really big generalization here, but you get the point)

You may say that what Copernicus had predicted on paper using math, Galileo Galilei saw with his own telescope, thus his famous words 'eppur si muove' (and yet it moves).
