Python Bumps Off Java As Top Learning Language

glaurungn Re:Pascal (415 comments)

Pascal is a very safe language, created to teach procedural programing, it obviously lacks the simple ways python has to do complex task with a few lines of code. I dont know if having a lot of things solved is really good for learning, pascal is not usefull in real life, but I belive that learning to program has very little to do with real life applications in the beginning.

glaurungn What got my attention (236 comments)

was that the summary says that more capable antennas could improve reading distance, while in reality the tecnology was desinged for very short ranges, with a practically working distance of less than 10 cm. This is I belive because most tags are passive, have no energy and most be powered by the reading device with magnetic induction.

Akamai To Offer IPv6 To All In April

glaurungn Re:Why should I trust Akamai to get it right? (110 comments)

Maybe because they are in the bussines of content delivery, not content creation, so the inhability to make a simple HTML/Javascript site is not really relevant.
