I find that when I start dreaming about work, Then it is time to take some time off. Alittle Whiskey and little relaxing and then I start dreaming about things a guy should dream about(more whiskey, women and cars) and then the solution usually finds me
To err is human to really mess up you need a computer
From a purely psychological point of view I find it interesting that one of the qualities required to be a good programmer is the habit of obsessing over problems.
There was an article on Ars a couple of weeks ago which describes programmers in a way that I find surprisingly accurate. Both from my personal experience and from watching some of my better developer coworkers.
... the pleasure that comes when you finally get things working is such a narcotic jolt. Coders will chase that thrill over and over again. It compensates for those brutal hours of frustration. So this is a class of people who are just amazingly good at pounding nails into the floorboard with their forehead.
If the problem were really accuracy, you could probably solve it by using a type such as double-double (giving approximately 32 decimal digits). I suspect, however, that the problem is of a different order.
To be fair, something that I haven't tried, is to change my custom epsilon (that I use to bound computation in bezier-bezier curve intersection, which could otherwise recurse like crazy) from 0.1 to a lower value.
But 0.1 should be enough, I think... (since Bezier curve are generated by hand, and if we omit the zoom, 1 pixel = 1 unit away = minimal relevant distance the user can draw, hence 0.1 should be pretty good. But I did zoom, that might have been the problem...)
Anyway, thanks for the links, gotta check them later....
You know how one can link multiple account with Windows, like your home account and work account.
I linked my previous work account, which I believe use Azure Active Directory to my home account.
Since then I left and this previous work account was deactivated.
Now my home Window keep complaining I have "an account issue", unfortunately, somehow, I can't seem to unlink my previous work account, because I can't login into it....
Any idea what I am talking about? And how to solve it?
