7/23    Hey mconst, check this out:
        int main()
        {
            int i_value   = 16777217;
            float f_value = 16777217.0;
            printf("The integer is: %d\n", i_value);
            printf("The float is:   %f WTF????\n", f_value);
            printf("Their equality: %d WTF?!?!?\n", i_value == f_value);
        }
        Isn't it peculiar?
        \_ "%f" expects a double argument, not a float argument.  -- !mconst

4/04    Is there a good way to diff 2 files that consist of columns of
        floating point numbers, such that it only tells me if there's a
        difference if the numbers on a given line differ by at least a given
        ratio?  Say, 1%?
        \_ Use Excel.
           1. Open foo.txt in Excel.  It should convert all numbers to cells in

5/17    Anyone have the guts to short Facebook out of the gate?  I think it's
        overvalued, but at this point it looks like there are enough
        suckers to float this castle in the air for quite a while
        \_ I don't think you can find the shares to short yet. I am long
           personally, but only with 200 shares. It is a moon shot kind of
           stock.

3/15    Why does MS put double-quotes around the '8' in Windows Server 8, like
        the following?
        - Windows 8
        - Windows Server "8"
        \_ Because when they didn't do it, code didn't see the '\0'
           and went over?  Looks better than '8','\0' *shrug*

8/9     So I just found out that an old college friend of mine lost her
        four month old daughter to SIDS. What is the correct response here?
        \_ "Did she sleep with her belly?" and "Did you breastfeed?"
        \_ try this joke:
           How do you make a dead baby float?

1/26    What's a good motherboard I can get that will fit in a 1U
        case, with sata connectors, gig-e ethernet, and lots of
        slots for RAM?  I also don't want to have to use expensive
        double buffered RAM.  Can you tell I havne't bought a PC in
        years?  thanks.
        \_ Buy a mac. Haven't you heard? if you don't buy a Mac people
