    Thank you very much! Only 60GB for the torrent, wow. That's a lot less than I was expecting.

    This is such a pessimistic outlook.

    Almost every human being is lovely and friendly, and in my experience this holds true online as well. I've been playing online games for close to ten years now, and I've encountered less than a dozen assholes in all that time.

    Maybe it's just because I'm not into the hyper-competitive games like dota or csgo.

    Has anyone built a tool for scraping Stack Exchange? If this is the beginning of the end for them, I'd like to archive all the site's contents before they're gone forever.

    My understanding is that the moving air absorbs some energy and then takes it away. Picture a hot boulder at the bottom of a river. If the river is flowing, the boulder cools faster than if the water is still. This is because in a flowing river, the heat absorbed by the water is removed, and the temperature differential remains high rather than evening out.

    People always use switching two variables as an example when discussing programming, but when would you ever need to switch two variables? I have literally never needed to do this.

    Edit: I just had to do this for the first time! I was working on some user interface where the user can swap the position of two items.

    Yes, I am referring to the same book you linked to. Code: The Hidden Language of Computer Hardware and Software by Charles Petzold.

    What I meant was "I, too, recommend this book" not "here's a different book that I recommend". Sorry, should have worded that better!

    I also recommend Code. Very, very solid explanation of the fundamentals.
