comment How to compile Selenium on Debian Jessie, failing on ibus
Libraries change over time. More often than not, debian is more on the stable and boring side, with older versions than most code expects. Unless your project has declared a minimum version needed, search the repositories of the libraries, see when members and symbols change or disappear. You are likely to have to build and install contemporary versions of some or all your libraries.

comment Why does scala require parenthesis around the condition of an if statement
A notable example of asymmetric if is Python, with its affinity to lines, indentation and colons.

You may be able to incorporate elements of the story of the Dolphin emulator and their license change with a massive number of contributors: dolphin-emu.org/blog/2015/05/25/relicensing-dolphin

comment number of square matrices in a non-square matrix
@Zishnu Sadly, ignoring questions that is not quite up to par is very detrimental to the quality of the site. Anyway, there appears to be ambiguities in your question; for any matrix larger than 1x1, there are multiple solutions. Do you care about which one is chosen?

comment node deep file indexer module cannot go deep
Contrary to popular belief, the contents of a call stack trace contains information you can use to determine things about the problem.

comment Data integrity, BinaryWriter, C#
Figure out how much overhead is acceptable, and use that many bits. It might be worth having a byte of checksum for N 48-bit blocks. Assuming you never have partial writes, you cannot desync in your storage solution.

comment Why would a program require a specific minimum number of CPU cores?
@StevenBurnap Had the original question been about the things which make the performance requirements of games different from a lot of other computing to the degree that such a minimum number of hardware threads requirement is warranted, then an answer expanded from my comment with a bit of research may have been appropriate. The current shape of the question is largely uninteresting to answer, as it's just about gathering fodder for some argument about whether it's possible to have a hard failure by not having enough hardware threads. The mass of other irrelevant answers also deters.

comment Why would a program require a specific minimum number of CPU cores?
The thing to compare isn't 2 vs. 4 cores. It's essentially 1 vs. 3 cores, as CPU#0 will be pretty much pegged by the graphics driver and DPCs. There are also significant cache and migration effects if you oversubscribe a CPU with several kinds of tasks in a typical modern game's job system. The requirement is there because Frostbite (DA:I's engine) is designed from the ground up with very careful tuning that requires a particular number of cores.

comment Why using string[] args in all main methods?
@Mawg argc in C may be zero. in case of non-zero argc, argv[0] shall be a string that represents the "program name", or an empty string if the name is not available from the host environment. There is no requirement anywhere that it shall be a "full executable path". This is all from C99 section 5.1.2.2.1. Even your non-normative URL says this.

comment It is safe to accept money for open source software that you've written?
Your modification of the MIT license means it's not the MIT license anymore. You can license your software under multiple licenses, some of which may only be available for charge. Is your question about dual-licensing software, or concerns about taxation and other economy funstuff that may arise due to dealing across nation borders?

comment Hide admin menu if no admin option is available
@Jorge Your comment seem a bit strange. If by "again" you mean on the server, you don't have any security. You cannot trust the client.
