C is quirky, flawed, and an enormous success.
Despite some aspects mysterious to the beginner and occasionally even to the adept, C remains a simple and small language, translatable with simple and small compilers. Its types and operations are well-grounded in those provided by real machines, and for people used to how computers work, learning the idioms for generating time- and space-efficient programs is not difficult. At the same time the language is sufficiently abstracted from machine details that program portability can be achieved. Equally important, C and its central library support always remained in touch with a real environment. It was not designed in isolation to prove a point, or to serve as an example, but as a tool to write programs that did useful things; it was always meant to interact with a larger operating system, and was regarded as a tool to build larger tools. A parsimonious, pragmatic approach influenced the things that went into C: it covers the essential needs of many programmers, but does not try to supply too much.
Kuroneko vs Ayase epic chuuni fight is epic.
okay, having said that: Oreimo, please, stop stealing shit from Chuu2byo every time Kuroneko is on screen. it’s not an endearing homage if you do it every other episode, and your narrative framework simply cannot sustain the drama.
just, stop. please.
I’ve met a valid sample of City University graduates and never met one who wasn’t competent, whereas the opposite applies to King’s College London where the strange things their grads have said to me are part of some of my best pub stories: for instance, “I bought a Mac because I wanted a stable platform to write my essays.” Essays? In a CS degree? Maybe one, but plural? Also why “stable”? If you haven’t utterly trashed your system multiple times in your comp-sci degree you’re just an arts grad who didn’t get laid.
here I was, laughing my ass off and thinking of course, Shoko enters the elections at the last minute; and, of course ends up winning them with a crazy speech because she’s the Best Girl of this anime and everybody loves her crazy genki girl spirit then this fucking show throws a curve ball straight into my guts with the Haruto and Saki scenes — in cross-cut, just to rub it in more.
seriously, Sunrise: ballsy move. now I want to see if Valvrave can actually handle this plot and character turn seriously — because I swear, if the next episode is all cray cray crack and musical stuff and high school drama and vampires in space, then I’m fucking out.
