Reason #98623456 why religious sexual bulshittery in particular needs to be run over repeatedly by a... no, that's tasteless. I shouldn't say it. (I'll just think it, so you don't have to. You're welcome.)

This is pretty cool: the authors attempted to prove the correctness of a common sorting implementation and discovered it was in fact flawed.  Seems an input has to be rather carefully crafted to trigger a failure, though.

Interesting to see this on a bioinformatics site.  Wish they would have actually cited some existing bioinformatics Go code.  I know there is some out there.

Coincidence!  I could be in trouble.  It had been months since I signed up for "Bioinformatics Algorithms (Part 1)" on Coursera and hadn't heard a thing since.  I'd all but given up hope the class would ever start so recently I took "Preparation for Introductory Biology: DNA to Organisms" just for something to do.  (I passed, yeah.)  Then when I saw "Bioinformatics: Introduction and Methods" offered from Peking University, I signed up, hoping the English subtitles would be adequate.  Now today I see the original class from UC San Diego actually has a start date -- and it totally overlaps with the one from Peking U!  Oh no, can I do both?  Will the work load be too much?  Or will they complement each other?  The Peking U class already sounded like quite a bit of work.  The UCSD class is a total unknown.  (The Bio Prep class, the first one I had tried on Coursera, was pretty trivial, but it was just that, a prep class for a real class.)  Of course I worry a little that I'll even be able to figure out all the material, this not being my field.  I had fun with Rosalind problems for a while, then I started getting bogged down.  (I just looked, and aw, I'm about to get pushed out of the top 100 list.)  I'll have to revisit my code for sure.  Maybe update it, maybe solve a few new problems, maybe even publish something...
