Man Booted From Southwest Flight and Threatened With Arrest After Critical Tweet

vilanye Re:this story is missing information (928 comments)

You entire post was wrong. The twat in question is not part of the crew. Posting complaints about said twat is not threatening or abusive and she was wrong. Even SWA eventually admitted she was wrong by saying that all comments about their service, good or bad, are welcomed on "social media". Hopefully she got fired or demoted to a position where she doesn't have to deal with customers.

My point about you being a coward stands.

Go hide under a rock, it is safer for you.

You are truly stupid.

There is no such thing as an ad hominem attack. It is a fallacy that have nothing to do with calling you names. Trying to defend yourself by misusing the term is the hallmark of the willfully stupid, which you stand as a proud member of.

It is a term misused by morons like you, who get called out for being a moron, when all that happened was that you were insulted.

One more time since you are stupid: An ad hominem is not the same thing as calling you descriptive and correct names.

If you don't want to be called out for being an idiot, at least learn what ad hominem means.

Linus Torvalds: "GCC 4.9.0 Seems To Be Terminally Broken"

vilanye Re:I know you're trying to be funny, but... (739 comments)

You must be a member of the participation trophy generation.

Yup, a proper chef knows how to accept criticism and if he is truly good will admit his cake is shit, and make an acceptable cake to replace it.

You, on the other hand, are a weeping vagina that needs to man up and take responsibility for your shitty cake.

No participation trophy for you!

The media whores at Southwest Airlines have a sense of humor:

Man Booted From Southwest Flight and Threatened With Arrest After Critical Tweet

vilanye Re:this story is missing information (928 comments)

Not only are you stupid, you are also a coward.

If that was intimidation to you, unplug the internet, weld your doors shut and brick your windows.

If she isn't fired, SWA has serious problems.

What breach of safety did this cause?

I truly hope that girl was fired for being a vindictive twat.

'Just Let Me Code!'

vilanye Re:Who is stopping him? (372 comments)

Gradle: "Gradle combines the power and flexibility of Ant with the dependency management and conventions of Maven into a more effective way to build."

That is like making headcheese and than coding it with anthrax.

'Just Let Me Code!'

vilanye Re:Welcome to engineering (372 comments)

Ah yes, the battle cry of the agile apologist. "If it didn't work, you are doing it wrong"

Any one size fits all process is a failure.

Perl Is Undead

vilanye Re:"Undead" doesn't mean vibrant, though. (283 comments)

The combination of enforced white space, and not making everything an expression has significantly weakened Python.

The workarounds for Python's gimped lambdas for instance(they suck because of the above two issues) are truly bloated and horrifying.

Tacked on scoping(self isn't required because 'explicit is better than implicit', that is just spin. It is required because once upon a time, Python had no scoping) and OO just add to the Python suck-fest.

If explicit is truly better than implicit the language wouldn't be filled with implicit elements. Don't believe Guido's spin.

Perl Is Undead

vilanye Re:Perl 6ers just can't get shit done. (283 comments)

Ruby 1.8 and earlier has a AST interpreter written in C.

All, or nearly all of the standard library for Ruby(regardless of version) is written in C.

To say Ruby is written in C is not wrong in the slightest.

Firefox 30 Available, Firebug 2.0 Released

vilanye Re:Please, please just stop... (270 comments)

Wrong.

The Linux version crashes often, like 10 times a minute. It does run and render poorly on Linux, while the FF version palemoon is at does not, so there is definitely something wrong with the Palemoon devs

Theater Chain Bans Google Glass

vilanye Re:Slashdot technophobes (376 comments)

Google is a spyware company. That makes them evil, by default.

The fact that they are shoving themselves everywhere, shows that they want to be evil overlords.

Theater Chain Bans Google Glass

vilanye Re:Good (376 comments)

Violence is the only way to stop these sanctimonious pricks.

You see some fucktard wearing one, walk up to him and smash his face in. After you do that, stab him or her in their genitals because they do not deserve to procreate.

It's the only way to be sure.

Toward Better Programming

vilanye Re:pft. (391 comments)

HTML5 & XML have nothing to do with client-server.

Javascript can be client, server, or both.

REST is just the obvious consequence of HTTP and doesn't need annoying acronyms and meaningless buzzwords like RESTful.

Sockets implement the client and server. HTTP sits on top of that and shuffles the crap you mentioned back and forth.

I actually remember when /. had mostly good technical discussions.

Proving that your unit tests are complete and correct is as difficult as proving the actual program being tested is correct.

GNU C Library Alternative Musl Libc Hits 1.0 Milestone

glibc is LGPL, so you can dynamically link to it if you don't want your app to be GPL'd.

Java 8 Officially Released

vilanye Re:Criticality of JigSaw (302 comments)

Swing is a little verbose and unwieldy, but people tend to forget(or maybe they just don't know) that it is a very low level GUI library that is great for creating custom, reusable widgets(assuming you don't use crap like anonymous inner classes). It is not meant to be a high level GUI library. For a layout manager use Miglayout, seriously, how did this not get included into the standard library?

JavaFX 2 is much easier to manage and layout as long as your requirements don't call for seriously complex GUI elements. It ditched that crappy language that plagued JavaFX 1 and uses a simple functional approach.

File choosers - again Swing is meant to be a low level GUI library.

Java doesn't integrate well with underlying system so why are you using java for command line apps?

Unsigned types? I would prefer that they add in integer overflow protection instead.

They should deprecate interfaces and add in mixins over multiple inheritance. It has all the advantages of both, without the boilerplate of interfaces and potential mess of MI. Could you imagine the mess that the typical over-engineering of Java would make of MI? The horror!
