comment Git Bisect found the buggy commit. Now what?
@gnat: What's with the link on chameleon questions? I didn't change the question. I was mentioning the solution (and mentioning to delnan that I understood what he explained) to the problem, as part of my update to the question.

comment Git Bisect found the buggy commit. Now what?
Hmm...interesting info about git blame. Actually, for bad commits A and B, I didn't know which line of code caused the problem, so bisect was necessary. After finding the commit I had a look at the files that had got modified during the commit and the diff of what changes were done. Looks like that's exactly what a blame does. Still, blame and show seem to be nice ways of getting the job done. Thanks!

Not very familiar with those. I've already tried with iframes, but the iframe borders don't disappear even after using border: none. So tried loading into div and it loads only some elements. Problem is, I have to take a decision in a few hours and proceed.

comment Why can't I understand Java?
@Cal: One does not have to be a math wiz to be a good programmer. My school teacher actually took me to a corner and advised me to take up Commerce instead of Computer Science because my math and physics grades were low (but I scored high on the logic test which was a test the school conducted to decide whether a person was good enough to study computer science). I chose CS anyway, went on to become one of the top three programmers in class and because of CS, my math and physics grades also improved coz thinking logically to write programs made me understand how to solve math and learn physics

comment Is it imaginable to teach a machine how to program itself to a defined specification?
@florian: We ourselves are machines who have learnt how to do programming (assuming aliens/god created us :-) ). Of course we haven't yet acquired the ability to program DNA sequences etc, so if you create a machine that has to learn how to program eventually, you have to program it to "evolve" and eventually learn how it itself was programmed.
