I just hope that possible employers during their background checks
stumble across this kind of messages to weed out incompetent programmers
who always try to blame others for the bugs in their own code.
oh, a personal attack that accomplished a lot. i'm glad you wrote this, it was
really insightful, very informative, and definitely not a waste of everyone's
time or anything (including the time it took for you to type it). it's a shame
that you are so insecure that you have to throw stones at other people (maybe
just me, who knows) to make yourself feel better. ;-)
i've already sent you a personal response, no sense of carrying on here about
this but i do want to add that i never blame others for mistakes i make. and, i
wasn't really blaming anyone. if you'll recall, i'd asked a question "is
documented somewhere" followed by a question mark and then added if not "i
think it should" i.e. in the man pages for round() and math.h. this might be
the first time that i tried to help someone (or something) and got attacked for
doing so (the fedora core distro by finding and documenting bugs; btw, i found
another in X... just now as i write this my X server just crashed multiple
times! note to everyone reading, i am not blaming the xorg group for this bug,
after all maybe i did something wrong, i am "incompetent" after all. ;-0)
and, one final thing. i'm actually a fairly competent programmer... i challenge
you to a coding contest if you really feel the urge to prove yourself! until
then, i'll continue to file bugs in bugzilla and comment on others i find while
wallowing in my "incompetence".
mark "sorry to steal jef's signature move, my apologies to him, but since when
does suggesting an addition to the man pages and asking a question about c99
when you've always been a K&R C guy (hence, the ignorance about round returning
junk data which i still maintain is something gcc should fix lest it not be
allowed without -std=c99) deserve a tirade about programmer incompetence?"
