That's why not to buy poisons like bug poison. The effective cleaner is basically something like ammonia, that's hard to live in, but vanishes. All of these other products people are using and leaving residue of (for example in my house) are the ACTUAL FOOD for all of these unique bugs that live here, and never live in my house when I can control the poison (never use any under any circumstance).

You know, I gotta give it to them. I might just give up my phone for an iPhone as long as they have all these innovative features!

Bash scripts with object orientation, exceptions, named parameters, and more. All in a small library. How cool is that?

Arch Linux for WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux). Bit of a nice surprise there, I wasn't aware that it might be possible to run something other than Ubuntu.

It's insane how they got that quality with such low requirements. I get around 90-100 FPS usually on a 980 with 1440p.
Sure, I'm playing on a custom quality level that's a hybrid between Medium and Ultra because framerate and resolution is more important to me than most effects, but despite that it looks like Ultra in most cases. It's really good looking!

No LCD involved, colored light is provided directly. Rumor has it that Apple is also interested in this tech for future iPhones.
More than four years after first showing a protoype CLED TV at CES 2012, Sony has announced their first display sporting the self-emitting technology....

Always keep CPU caches in mind when choosing an algorithm. This article shows why arrays can perform better than linked lists even with lots of inserts involved.

The article missed to mention that the underlaying array is not growing linear with lists's length, but (IIRC) doubled in size for every resize step. Thus you don't have the alloc-copy-gc-overhead for every insert.
