For the record, I have no trouble at all believing that it works that way for many people. The claim was that this is how it works for everyone, and that I find questionable - in my experience, some people work better verbally than visually. I'm pretty good visually, but it definitely feels like I'm engaging different systems when I am reasoning using words than when I am reasoning using images - and I don't expect this generalizes.
I'm one of them. For me it's because I made some token efforts before to understand it, and it seemed far more complicated than source control should be. I have very simple needs, and correspondingly don't really have a desire to learn non simple tools.
Apparently, I'm the only one who can't figure out how to play. It seems you're supposed to launch missiles, but all I can do is make them pop into and out of the ground. As soon as the first bug reaches the ground, I lose, regardless of how many missiles I have showing.
Missiles correspond to the binary representation of the hex number. All possible values of one hex digit can be represented by 4 binary digits, and vice versa. As an example: to hit an AF hex you need six 1010(A) 1111(F) missiles. To hit 24 hex you need only two missiles: 0010(2) 0100(4)
It's not a crime, but Allman bracing is normally used. Every official guidelines, every programming book, every open source project I know of, uses Allman for C#, so anything else stands out like a sore thumb. It's about convention, consistency and resulting readability. I'm not a fanboy of bracing style :) I think that in Rome you should do as Romans do. When I use Java or PHP, I use K&R - it's a context thing, it would just look weird and out of place otherwise. I believe it's better to embrace the "native" (common) coding style in each language, unless you only ever work on your own.
Allman bracing sucks on wide screen laptops, and it was only when I found the 3-font point brace line Visual Studio extension that I was able to switch. I'm really getting annoyed with braces, we should get rid of them.
