Political Threads in a non-political based forum.
@Mike C yeah.... US Politics have catapulted this year into SPORTING EVENT status :) :) :) CNN Even had given the debates "Game Day" music themes like Monday Night Football :) :)
Full contact politics
Now theres a sport !
A lot of the code I work with originated on Alpha Microsystems hardware in a dialect of basic where variable names were limited to 6 characters. Tokens were Rad-50 encoded, which would fit 6 characters into 2 16-bit words. That was the limitation. We still have a lot of those variable names floating around our "modern" code.
naming conventions that include the TYPE that don't get updated when the actual type of the variable is changed
those drive me crazy almost as much as deliberately misnamed since you're left wondering how the integer is now 1.25 ?????
and that said variables dont get updated because "it's too much work" ... argggggg !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
