comment Best strategy to find the root cause when exception is swallowed by 3rd party
@YazadKhambata: the s in strace does not stand for "stack". It will not give you any information about your exception directly, but it may reveal what it was trying to do that caused the exception, e.g. access a file that doesn't exist, or open a network connection that is blocked by a firewall.

comment Abstraction in algorithms
@Ahmad "comparable objects" is exactly the kind of thing that should be part of an abstract description of an algorithm. There are in fact sorting algoritms (e.g. radix sort) where that is not sufficient. Abstracting things in terms of input and output is part of software engineering or (more specifically) requirements engineering.

comment What's the tradeoff for type inference?
Note that the new HashMap<>(); syntax was only added in Java 7, and the lambdas in Java 8 allow for quite a lot of "real" type inference.

comment Writing my own voice recognition code
I'm afraid that the 2.2, the part where you say is "not really for discussion here", is where nearly all the difficulty is contained. Extracting a numerical value(s) from an audio sample where simple numerical comparison corresponds to similarity as sound is either extremely hard, or even a fundamentally wrong approach.

comment Why would a program require a specific minimum number of CPU cores?
Funny, I've been playing Dragone Age Inquisition on a first-generation i3 for over 30 hours now, without "massive frame drops". Got a new graphics card for it, though.

comment Is it difficult to develop a programming language which is closely related to human language?
Heh, very interesting point about natural languages going the opposite way.
