for parking lots you can build roofs to put them on. It adds shade and is never blocked by cars under them.

Love it. I would love to have this for mobile apps too.

There is a lot of great mobile inspiration out there. For the moment, my focus is on the web patterns.

if it's s&w brand I hope they go back to selling the large cans of peeled whole tomatoes. I used to love making pasta/pizza/enchilada sauce using their 6lb can of whole tomatoes from costco for around $2.50 a can.(had a really nice tart and sweet taste) I haven't found a decent alternative since they stopped making those that isn't the San Marzano super sweet tomatoes and that don't cost an arm and a leg.

Unfortunately it is not that company. Good luck finding a replacement though.

it still does that if your code is sufficiently broken.

The video of this deposition is in the comments above and is pretty spot on to the reenactment.

It's trivial for someone that is used to it to do with a calculator. Especially an expert. When I did a lot of cad/solid works I'd memorized the most common fractions anyway. About 68' is not "accurate" since the answer is closer to 63'.

-----


yeah, but with metric it's bloody obvious when a calculation is wrong.

I'm always amazed at why the USA still uses the imperial system...

How often are you really making characters? Single quote for unescaped string literals is used way more often in my world and it's a feature of ruby, base et al. and other languages. Character("X") isn't that bad for something used minimally.

-----


I argue that even in the case of char, why so cheap now to reserve a type for char instead of using unicode? I get it, sometimes you have requirements where char type is cheaper to use, but on iPhone a few extra bytes won't kill.

-----


well it's supposed to be a systems language so it makes sense to have all types available. you could ask the same of Int8 being in the language when pretty much all processors nowadays are 64bit.

-----


Well in a sense that is swift-evolution.

-----


I disagree, it's more like "my favourite X has this, so I want everybody else to have it"

If Swift's idea was to be a C-like language then it doesn't make any sense to suggest indenting as code-block markers, or to not use 'default' in switch statements

-----


It was only c like in brackets. This language is an amalgam of the good features of many languages really and it's not done adapting to where it should be. I agree that indentation from Python is a bad feature though.

I agree... the tests are pretty bad. They give you time allotted based on how many words there are which is a terrible metric of how hard a question is. The questions are not that hard but they are really bad because you get around 30 seconds to 1. parse the question 2. read all 4 answers when a lot of the answers are subtly different 3. figure out the best answer 4. answer it.

I'm almost glad I didn't pay more attention in chemistry class because I'm sure I'd do some of these blunders.
