Justified: Visual Basic Over Python For an Intro To Programming

hooiberg Seriously, Fortran (647 comments)

Fortran is a very simple language to get to grips with the basics: For loops, if statements, subroutines. These concepts are the same in almost every language. That way, the language does nog stad in the way of learning the concepts. Nothing like classes & objects, pointer magic, etc. Things that belong to a course aimed at somebody who has mastered the basics.

Belgian Raid Kills 2, Said To Avert "Major Terrorist Attacks"

hooiberg Re:Solution? Import more Islamists into Europe ! (257 comments)

So you would for example agree on our law, that when a family of two adults and two children come to our country, they get the equivalent of 3000 USD unemployment benefits, and when they leave our country to migrate back to their country of origin, they keep these benefits, not scaled down to local prices?

Belgian Raid Kills 2, Said To Avert "Major Terrorist Attacks"

hooiberg Re:Solution? Import more Islamists into Europe ! (257 comments)

We have already municipal offices with separate counters for men and for women. Swimming pools and fitness centers with women-only-days (but men still have to pay the same for membership, while they are allowed less entry). Ha, even a swimming pool with separate dress booths for: men without children, women without children, men with sons, men with daughters, women with sons, women with daughters. And cases of violence of non-muslims against muslims is considered a terrible hate crime, but violence of muslims against non-muslims is considered fairly normal... Fortunately, the last politicians who have grown up in our hippie days are retiring, and hopefully we will have a more realistic outlook on politics in the years to come. Our left wing parties are growing smaller and smaller every election. There is hope.

Several European Countries Lay Groundwork For Heavier Internet Censorhip

hooiberg Re:Swedish Social Democrats filed criminal charges (319 comments)

Lefties are in a knot here. Because on the one hand they want freedom of religion, and on the other hand they want equality of genders. What we have fought for, and are still fighting for, for over a century. They have not yet realized they cannot have both at the same time. It is very difficult for them to chose...

Ask Slashdot: Sounds We Don't Hear Any More?

hooiberg Re:The whine of the flyback transformer (790 comments)

That was awesome. My father always thought I broke it, when I Degaussed. My mom was even in too much of a general panic to think anything at all, when I did it.

He's 24. His answer will probably be: 'Hold on a sec., let me find an app for that.'

What are you most interested in seeing out of CES?

hooiberg Re:Autonomous vehicles (162 comments)

You can buy quadcopters with fully autonomous autopilots these days. They are not even that expensive. The word to Google for is 'ArduPilot' ;-)

UK Man Arrested Over "Offensive" Tweet

hooiberg Re:Explanation for us non-UKians? (360 comments)

So it seems. The only group you can freely insult are white males that are christian/atheist. And nothing happens, except to the white males who object. Do this to any other subgroup of society and the shit hits the fan.

UK Man Arrested Over "Offensive" Tweet

hooiberg Re:Tree of liberty (360 comments)

Lots of people are offended by lots of things, because we live in a culture that gives offended people rights over the offender. Remove those rights and the problem will be gone.

Should Video Games Be In the Olympics?

hooiberg No (232 comments)

The Olympics are for athletes of the body, not athletes of the mind (although there are psychological aspects to physical sports, and physical aspects to computer games). More over, if we start adding mental games, why not first chess, checkers, go, connect-6 etc.? There are world championships for all of those, and also for computer games. This is the way it should be.

"Infrared Curtain" Brings Touchscreen Technology To Cheap Cars

hooiberg Re:We Don't Need... (123 comments)

I agree. I heard a commercial '...so you can enjoy media in excellent quality, while driving'. Really? How insane does this get? Time to go bicycle-only, if half the drivers are watching the latest GoT episode.
