comment How to solve binary labeling with graph cut?
I've done some looking around, but no-one seems to have written a paper on this yet which actually defines their notation clearly. I believe that my edit correctly describes the energy function. I think I understand the graph reduction given in the presentation, but it seems to build a graph for which you need the min flow, not the max flow.

Inline a clearer explanation of the problem, and link to the presentation from which the previous cryptic image was taken

comment Why is the Scala Option type not called Maybe, just as in Haskell?
Ocaml gets the name from SML. In a quick glance through Landin's The Next 700 Programming Languages I didn't notice an option type, so SML might be the origin of the name.

comment Is there real value in a portable language targeting very different runtimes?
Kevin Glass did have e game running on both iOS and Android using XMLVM, but an iOS update broke it. Shows the risks of targetting iOS in particular and multiple VMs in general.

I've made compilers repeatably crash before.

comment Why it is not recommended to post several defects in the same issue / ticket?
@MainMa, I see it happen with certain clients in a bug tracker which really only requires three clicks. I think it's a conceptual thing: the client sees a discussion about what needs to be fixed with the project, where the developer sees a status progress tracker for a specific issue. It's a matter of training the client.

comment Why it is not recommended to post several defects in the same issue / ticket?
All four options are bad, but I would favour d (which implies b). If it were a free-text answer with a limit of 15 words, I would say something like "Tracking the status of multiple bugs is much clearer with multiple tickets".

comment Why is the game industry, specifically , so harsh on programmers?
How many of the reports were first hand? EA isn't the entire industry, but whenever I hear this kind of thing they're the only company that's mentioned.

comment Unit test SHA256 wrapper queries
In addition to comparing the result of hashing "Hello World!" with another language, there are test vectors defined in the standard (as, I believe, there are in any cryptographic primitive standard published by NIST).
