I had a lovely reminder why I left new mexico today. Had to deal a bit with fidelity, who informed me that LANL has not set my status to "not working here for at least 5 years" yet. Then spoke with a lovely girl who took half an hour to record my address. Back to fidelity, there were 3 errors in the meticulously spelled address.

"I'm sorry sir, it will be a 10 day freeze on your account if we update your address from here"

But 2 hours in, 0 comments. Is there really nothing to say anymore about this? Okay. here's a question: how would ...

John, slap some sugar-coated naming onto it and I'm sure it will take off again.  Maybe a 'Candy Corn' release, so all the children of the corn come out and play with their hot new gadgets.
 
rare but wonderful to see:

Suppose you need a C++ program to calculate the distance between two points.
Suppose you need a C++ program to calculate the distance between two points. You might define a struct: struct mypoint { double x, y; };. and a function, containing the algorithm: double distance(mypoint const& a, mypoint const& b) { double dx = a.x - b.x; double dy = a.y - b.y; return sqrt(dx ...
