Autodidact of various trades, geek of several.





There are probably two types of coders; the one who took up this craft before he knows it’s a quadzillion dollar industry, and the one after.

comment any document which says exactly what range of numbers are .NET BigIntegers designed for?
i mean of course i know we should use normal primitives whenever we can.. i mean like say is BigInteger designed for numbers 100 times bigger than ULong.MaxValue or is BigInteger designed for numbers 100k times bigger than ULong.MaxValue? i mean I know it can support 100k times bigger than ULong.MaxValue but is it designed with this range in mind, or is it designed with this range declared "out-of-ordinary requirement"?

if i do not need to support beyond 128 chars, what is the advantage of choosing ACSII encoding over UTF8 encoding?

@Thor that is exactly why i'm asking if saving as ASCII has any advantages at all

i mean the UTF8 is legacily supporting ASCII too. so even if you have to support legacy stuff, UTF8 would work just fine no other changes needed.

yes i'm talking about the 7-bit ASCII set. can you think of 1 advantage we will ever need to save something as ascii instead of utf-8? (since the 7-bit would be saved as 8-bit anyway, the filesize would be exactly the same)

comment to know how many visitors visit my website, i absolutely have to put some kind of tracking code within the page itself?
am i right to say all solutions done personally or employed by a service essential boil down to either analyzing server web logs or saving the data in a database? And there is no other magic beyond this right?
