Re: blog: to bitcoin or not to bitcoin?

Plus, the obvious winners won't give you much anymore (BTC won't have another one million percent rise). Invest into real companies instead. 8)

Re: blog: to bitcoin or not to bitcoin?

Praising currencies which (optimistically) cannot be co-opted by governmental agencies misses the "bigger picture" though, that being that of course one can "regulate" the wannabe currencies. I'll leave out the obvious discussion about how "real" money is not quite real as well, given that there are...

Re: blog: to bitcoin or not to bitcoin?

I only invest in real stocks. Looking forward to the Bitcoin bubble bursting. I'll make sure that there is enough popcorn.

Re: blog: manage static websites with visual studio

Your solution pretty much is a static site generator. If anything, you have just proven to be a hipster. Grew a scarf already?

(Heh, tits. The birds, that is.)

Re: blog: manage static websites with visual studio

Sounds like something you actually should not do. Not every abomination is a worthy achievement. But I love how this discussion has an entirely different headline ( topic ) than its related blog article. Should we talk about "managing static websites with visual studio" or about "managing static web...

Re: Khronos: A Plugin for Ageing Gracefully

While I'm against the common programming doctrine about using "the right language for the right job" (what a load of tosh - we don't need 20 programming languages - a single one is just fine as long as it's C :wink:), I am a big fan of having 20 specialised applications hackysacked-together to do t...

Re: Khronos: A Plugin for Ageing Gracefully

That said, I couldn't live without superficial nonsense like astyle ; a personal weakness, to be sure, but what's a cup of tea without a scone? :D What a coincidence: Clang has clang-format which seems to do just that . You, being someone who continuously adds weird stuff into a file manager, shoul...

Re: Khronos: A Plugin for Ageing Gracefully

Clang really does like to warn about every little floating piece of dust possible... Which is one of the reasons why I like it and usually add /Wall to the clang-cl calls (old habits etc. etc.): Meaningful style and compatibility warnings with random suggestions how to make them go away - with colo...

Re: Khronos: A Plugin for Ageing Gracefully

Beta versions are fine for me as long as they work as intended (or, in some cases, at all - keeping expectations low won't disappoint you at so many points in your life). I've read that GCC, in general, is far from being a decent compiler, it tends to over-optimize your code by removing deliberately...

Re: Khronos: A Plugin for Ageing Gracefully

Doesn't the inclusion of "efficiency improvements" basically tell us that previous versions were not efficient ; or are you a knight of the Order of Relative Efficiency which I have just imagined to exist and which religiously assumes that efficiency isn't binary ? Also, how is Version 7.1 of (MinGW...

Re: xplorer2 v3.5 final released

are you using some registry cleaner No. :) another simpler explanation is that you UNinstall xplorer2 first then install the new version. I don't - but this "error" has been observed by me for a number of versions now. I thought that maybe something re: default folders was changed, but this does no...

Re: xplorer2 v3.5 final released

I didn't even know that there was a 6-month update cycle. I wish more developers would have a 6-feature update cycle instead. ... Now I wonder if I should get a 4K display. Thank you, nikos! edit: And once more it failed to detect my previous installation folder and defaulted to a different one. Why...
