comment Can increased usage of higher and higher programming languages lead to a deficit of programmers with computer architecture knowledge?

comment Undefined behaviour in Java
@gnat, Hm, shouldn't that be edited with a post scriptum? It seems like an abuse of the rollover, and in any case, small mobile screens would not have that effect anyway.

comment Undefined behaviour in Java
@gnat, +1. But why did you abuse the rollover for your last paragraph?
