How are hot corners a screen saver setting?
... Because they activate (or prevent activating) the "screen saver", maybe?
The general approach used is to convert to some internal unicode variant that is distinct from the external encodings usually used (often something like WTF-16 or a UTF-8 relative) on the basis that a character (codepoint in abstract Unicode space) is what is preserved, not the byte sequence.
This. A string type is not supposed to have an encoding, only its serializations do. Which is also why string != array of bytes and any language which uses the same type for both is broken.
only those critical bugs that were approved were allowed into the release.
This phrase doesn't make your point clearer...
Hey boss, I've a bug request here to crash the application if the user clicks OK.
Let me check the list of approved bugs... crash app on OK, you said? Yes, here... bug #1337, approved and scheduled for next release.
Ok, let me just dereference a null reference here and it's done.
the subject has gotten deeper into some crevasses than intended
Don't know about Japan, but Russia at least has Volapuk
Considering what I've heard about education day-to-day life from various first-hand sources, this picture looks quite accurate to me...
Why do you think anybody does this?
Well, I got that impression from some comment on this forum somewhere stating that after a software update you need to do a Restart, shut down and power up doesn't cut it, because doing a shut down on recent Windows is more like hibernate or something; or something like that don't know the details, I haven't used recent versions of Windows.
Also a quick google search seems to indicate that this is correct (e. g. https://www.howtogeek.com/243901/the-pros-and-cons-of-windows-10s-fast-startup-mode/ ; haven't actually read it, just skimmed, but it says that the mode is enabled by default on laptops and "some desktops")
@dreikin said in WTF Bites:
Well, that's new to me.
Now, why their driver requires a full reboot (a.k.a. their driver doesn't unload/reload properly).... that's TRWTF.
BTW, am I the only one here thinking that making a cold boot "warmer" than a restart is very surprising and thus not such a good idea?
in modern code typename is preferred.
I got that that was what was being asserted, but what I wondered was why.
I looked it up. In this context, there's no actual difference between them. The "mandatory" typename use applies when using a nested type within a template parameter T, that is, T::bar, if that is supposed to be a type, must be qualified as typename T::bar otherwise it will be treated during syntax/etc. analysis as if it is a value / variable, and might cause ... hilarity.
Yes, there's places where
typename is required, which is an entirely different context and is extremely annoying because it adds up to a shit-ton of clutter obliterating the actual code.
@Steve_The_Cynic said in CppUnit:
I make class to be five letters.
Ok, ok, very large values of four maybe ; I'll let you borrow my for a while.
However, the human semantics of typename in a template parameter declaration are clearer
IMHO, if you try to apply human semantics and intuition to C++ template code, you've already lost; better to not start getting used to doing so. And also IMHO, given the number of times you have to write that in all but the most utterly trivial cases, the excessive length of
typename does quickly add up to being an actual code readability problem.
Looks like your connection to What the Daily WTF? was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
