Santa, sex and putenv

[ #9258 ]
A German priest (a Jesuit, unsurprisingly) started a campaign against the old bearded marketing tool known as Santa Claus. I like Jesuits.

By the way, journal comments seem to be off by default now. I just wanted to post a comment on ziggy's last journal entry. So here it is. The article he links to says that 75% of the cases of sudden death during sexual activity involved ... extra-marital sexual intercourse. The obvious statistical conclusion is that 75% of sexual activity is extra-marital. I like numbers.

Other news. Are you a C programmer ? Then don't pass automatic variables to putenv(3). I like C.

  • Hm. Sorry about that. Comments are enabled on that posting now.

    There are more options for comments now than the last time I looked. It used to be just enabled/disabled, and now it can be limited to friends/foafs, or exclude foes/friend's foes. Interesting.

    • It was our (slashteam's) fault. We changed how commenting works, and didn't update the user's preferences for journal entries. But it was later fixed, and problems should be gone by now.
    • Oh, and the new options: I don't expect they will be too useful here, but some people might want to restrict to friends-only, or to exclude foes. The thing is, because we have very foes here, and no anonymous posting, it's rarely an issue.
  • ... what percentage of all C programming bugs consist of passing ephemeral values to code that expects permanent ones.
