How To Develop Unmaintainable Software

ddd0004 I know the guys to ask (211 comments)

The guys who wrote the software at my previous job were masters of it. I don't know all their secrets, but some of their finest work included: single character named global variables that were reused indiscriminately, code in stored in a database that was then evaluated inline that did things like changing variable values and declaring functions and other fun stuff, 500+ line functions that tried to do a little of everything, and liberal use of copy and paste.

Georgia Cop Issues 800 Tickets To Drivers Texting At Red Lights

ddd0004 Re:Officer dickhead is a dickhead. (1440 comments)

If your foot is falling of the giant brake pedal and you are creeping into the intersection at idle and you can't do anything about it in the 5-10 seconds it takes to move forward enough to cause a dangerous situation, you don't need to have a driver license.

ddd0004 Re:Leaked evidence chemical attack was false flag. (227 comments)

You aren't thinking enough like a conspiracy theorist. These are either a carefully crafted code to their Illuminati brothers or the colonels have been removed from the earth and alien doppelgangers have been put in their place.

See, it's all very obvious when you think it through.

HDMI 2.0 Officially Announced

ddd0004 Re:Attention Cinephiles (293 comments)

Can we please stop with this tired old joke? It's never been funny.

Nope. The jokes stop when fools quit falling for high-end cables. You have the right to throw away money on platinum cables with insulation made from unicorn horn that have been bathed in the tears of angels to break them in and I have the right to laugh at you.

Canadian Couple Charged $5k For Finding 400-Year-Old Skeleton

they flail wildly with abso-fucking-lutely no direction. Politicians basically sit around and comment on shit of which they have no idea to appear busy.

This is not limited politicians. This statement pretty much describes all of human history up to and including this reply.

Stick with what works I always say.

Sorry that the laws aren't convenient with your current situation. Please continue to drive under the influence. And, if you don't have a car, feel free to steal a car because of our oversight to provide you public transportation or an inexpensive cab.

Firefox 21 Arrives

ddd0004 Re:Firebug is awesome (246 comments)

If your development involves working with cookies, Firebug totally beats the Chrome development tools. With Firebug, I can edit a cookie with a click, filter them, set breakpoints on the cookie so you can see when it is modified. Chrome pretty much lets me view them and delete them individually and that's it. Chrome development tools are still very useful, but I think Firebug totally outclasses it.

FAA Pushed To Review Ban On Electronics

ddd0004 Re:In my experience (369 comments)

I like your new plan. I'll take all the crying kids you can put on an airplane if I can see a way too cocky guy having a cell phone conversation (probably via a bluetooth headset) get booted off a plane. Look we all understand you've been snapping necks and cashing checks after selling the Catalina Wine Mixer but we'll be where we are going in a couple hours. You can get with your brahs then.

Can You Really Hear the Difference Between Lossless, Lossy Audio?

This is good to know. The next time I'll just tell my wife I was searching for the Neil Young audio conversion service "Pono" and I mistyped it.

Can You Really Hear the Difference Between Lossless, Lossy Audio?

ddd0004 Re:Better question (749 comments)

Thanks for the pointer, I've had my electrons swimming upstream all along. I also rewired my usb mouse after I discovered that it was wired the wrong way around at the factory. You won't believe the warmth of my lefts, the mellowness of my rights, the dynamic ups and well rounded downs.

Can You Really Hear the Difference Between Lossless, Lossy Audio?

ddd0004 If you want to defuse this argument (749 comments)

Charge less for the lossless format. Audiophiles use a common benchmarking system that is hidden in plain view. You look for the number after this character "$" and the larger that number is the better the component or recording or system will sound.
