comment Finding all Triangular Hulls in a 2D Point Cloud
If you hold your mouse over the arrow above the question vote tally (to the left of your question), it'll read "This question shows research effort; it is useful and clear". As currently written, your question doesn't show any effort on your part (it in fact looks a LOT like a "please do my homework for me" request, which shows up here depressingly often). How many points are you talking about?

comment Requesting information regarding the use of MUI vs. the use of GetText for i18n/L10n of Windows desktop applications

@MatiCicero - compiling to css may be the one exception to your excellent comment. Sometimes shaving a couple of milliseconds off the download time can be significant. This particular situation probably isn't one of those times.

comment Design an algorithm with network flow
@AshKan - not your fault, but you'd be amazed how many homework assignments get cut & pasted in here with little or no thought. We usually ask them to read Open letter to students with homework so they understand why they need to think the problem through for themselves. Since yours is not a homework problem, perhaps you could elaborate with a sample matrix or two and possibly explain how this fits into the bigger problem (so we're not facing an XY problem)
