John Ames (commodorejohn) says: I dunno, I kinda like the "Hiccup" strip. It has that Mell-'n-Artie groove going.
Leon Arnott (l) says: For what it's worth Unix isn't a programming language. And BASIC is actually a higher level than C, since it's an interpreted language for beginners. Everyone probably already told you this six years ago, but I can't resist.
The implication of the crossover strip seems to be that they've unwittingly changed history and returned to a Victorian version of reality. Which actually sounds pretty interesting, insofar as it's a twist on regular time-travel and parallel world story arcs. I'd like to see what all of Helen's tech got converted into.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:
A few years back, I was actually hired for a job to convert one critical routine from C to machine code. Cut the execution time by 70%. My one technical triumph of my career.
Rex Vivat (sirgarberto) says:
@Leon: Of course she knows that BASIC is higher level than C. "I could easily write an even faster version in BASIC, for heaven's sake" wouldn't be a much of a boast otherwise.Log In or Register to post a comment! It's free!
