|KirkMcDonald||Heh, I've had a bad experience with a Dell laptop...|
|ironfroggy||kbrooks: yeah. whats that got to do with it, tho?|
|KirkMcDonald||On the other hand, it was an issue with the paricular model I have.|
Lots of their other stuff is great. So go figure.
|kbrooks||ironfroggy, just checking: "my own means of working"|
|KirkMcDonald||But as for the model I have... http://www.lundellsettlement.com/|
|ironfroggy||that should have been "only", not "own.|
|kbrooks||ironfroggy, and this laptop has wireless, right to let u be on the internet|
|ironfroggy||yeah. not that you need wireless for a laptop to be on the internet, its just more convenient at certain times. more often than not, i dont even use it|
|ironfroggy||54Mb/s vs 1000Mb/s? ill plug in the little yellow wire, thank you.|
to use pywin32 or ctypes
|gps||my dell goes wonky if left idle for too long when running winxp. rock solid under linux (ubuntu).|
|kbrooks||ironfroggy, yeah definitely worth it|
|ironfroggy||gps: i had flaky experience with it on linux, so i switched it back to xp.|
|gps||more a statement of winxp sucking rather than dell in my case|
|ironfroggy||gps: we do not bash here.|
|action||kbrooks pretends that basher is not here|
|kbrooks||pretends that basher is not here|
so, functional programming ...
|TFKyle||kbrooks: the dwarf?|
|ironfroggy||yes, functional programming is great. i should finish my pure function module.|
cps is a bit confusin to me... slightly counterintutive. demo please of it?
|ironfroggy||what is cps?|
|kbrooks||cps = continuation passing style|
|ironfroggy||oh, isnt that a ruby thing?|
continuation = function
|ironfroggy||continuations are heavily a ruby deal|
|kbrooks||not in fp ;-)|
|ironfroggy||they have to do with, as far as i understand them, snapshotting the state of a function call and then later resuming it by unwinding the stack and restoring the frame state.|
or something like that.
|kbrooks||ironfroggy, don't take it too literally like that.|
|ironfroggy||what do you mean?|
im only badly repeating what i think i might have heard some time ago
i never look at ruby seriously.
