Probably because it is a dump of stats: remove that and there is nothing left. You have to explain what you are doing - simply showing the results is not what makes an article. You may be getting up votes either in protest at him not telling you what was the actual problem or because the results are so damn clever that nothing needs explaining (doubtful).
It should have been a blog post: not an article.

>I've told you what the problem is: this is not an article: it is a blog post, at best.
Okay, I am not arguing, my point was and still is that by sharing some etude it must be useful in first place and hopefully well described where I fail to do so too many times I guess.
>Explain the why's and wherefore's of what you are doing.
See, this is a simple 20 lines C code doing the most well-known task among all general etudes - returning a 32bit value out of smoe key. I didn't want to repeat how to bake bread, just to share the source and stats on different machines in order to give the reader an idea of is it worth downloading?
I just looked at article "Sorting Algorithms In C#" by Mr. Clifton and in my humble (I am not a programmer) opinion it appears to me useless, simply it doesn't cover the most interesting and useful area of sorting - the external ones e.g. I have had some drafts in C that dealt with 1,000,000,000 keys VERY FAST, with mentioning this I just wanted to share how different opinions exist.
Thank you, obviously my articles are not even articles, sorry, but blame me not - that's me, a C amateur trying to test/share interesting etudes.

Until recently I used AVR chips exclusively and if you know how to solder you can get
the USBTiny[^] kit from Adafruit. I got one a few years ago and it has been my programmer when all else failed.
I had an AVR Dragon that I really liked and it was very versatile but every time they upgrade their IDE you have to upgrade the tools and this one refused to upgrade, so it's bricked.
With respect to An autonomous roving vehicle - Part 1 of n[^], it's Robot B-9. The robot on Lost In Space was called Robot B-9, or just Robot. Robbie the robot was from Forbidden Planet and never uttered the phrase "Danger Will Robinson". I know it probably sounds like a small thing to you, but details are important. You kids today...
