Good advice and explanation
23 Apr 2015. Your Password is Too Damn Short. I'm a little tired of writing about passwords. But like taxes, email, and pinkeye, they're not going away any time soon. Here's what I know to be true, and backed up by plenty of empirical data: No matter what you tell them, users will always choose ...

So what happens if you increment a float by one forever? Doesn't it stay at 'infinity' at some point? Is that better - in all cases?
 
I hate ints because ints cause bugs. This one can literally crash your plane.
Have you turned it off and on again? That's the way to stop the plane becoming a brick

Privatization, deregulation and the plundering of continents. 
The latest in our audio long reads examines how, for a century, the East India Company conquered, subjugated and plundered vast tracts of south Asia. The lessons of its brutal reign have never been more relevant.

I had a check engine light on and after looking up the error codes and consulting the net wisdom brought the car to DRW. His diagnosis was as expected from the BMW forums I had consulted and he repaired quickly and for a very reasonable price. I am happy with the repairs and haven't had a problem since.

An Italian experience on the other side of the world. Good coffee, although the quality varies. Good pastries and cake. Gelato is quite good too. There is a little outside seating area.

The Park covers much of the eucalyptus forest above El Granada. It contains a quarry with a overlook deck from which you have a nice view of pillar point. There is a children's playground on the bottom with a picnic area. Fire roads give good hiking and biking opportunities.

Went there for a team lunch. The dining room is windowless but decorated with colorful peruvian art. The service was friendly and enthusiastic. We shared the mixed appetizer with beef heart skewers (good), giant corn, and a bit of ceviche. The main meals were all good. I would recommend trying their peruvian juices.

Dr Viale anesthesized me for a knee operation. He called the evening before, a Sunday, and explained in clear language what he was planning to do. He also went a bit into the background of how the chemicals interact inside the body and what to expect. In the clinic he was cheerful and friendly with patients and nurses.

The place is a euro style cafe. They sell espresso and little lunches along with ice cream. I find them to be friendly and the cappuccinos are okay. There is also free wifi.
