Alan Turing Pardoned

makellan Re:Not enough, (415 comments)

To be fair to the Queen, he was guilty of something that was illegal at the time so a pardon is appropriate. The fact that it should never have been an issue, much less a criminal one, is, technically, not her fault. What she should do is pardon everyone who was ever convicted of being gay.

Ask Slashdot: How Important Is Advanced Math In a CS Degree?

makellan Important to pass, not to understand or use (656 comments)

Getting your BSc or even your BSe (Software Engineering) will require calculus. You're unlikely to ever use it again since you won't pick a job that requires a deep understanding of the subject. You can even look up anything that you need to know and/or use libraries written by those with that deep understanding. Just get through the courses.

Research Suggests Polygamous Men Live Longer

makellan I will live forever! (483 comments)

In seriousness, I'm not surprised. From living this way for a while, I see a lot less stress on all parties most of the time. When there is stress, it's easier to deal with as you have a stronger close-knit support structure.
