I don't know...It's been decades now I've set up IE to load in private mode by default, so pages don't get to save anything including cookies...so whenever it loads Google's homepage, it insists pretty hard I try out Chrome. On. Every. Visit.
Which is a lot more in-your-face than a separate tab.
And *YES*, Google Chrome is probably one of the fastest web-browsers, providing more efficient credentials security and user privacy. The vast of antivirus software manufacturers such as Avast! recommend this particular web-browser, empowered with various of security and user safety add-in's such pop-up and adware blockers. Privacy browsing mode is one of the Chrome's features that I admire. , and I hope you admire it as well.
I don't think this is the case, because the vast of antiviral software manufactures as an absolutely safe browser. Specifically, Avast! developed their Avast Secure Browser entirely based on Google Chrome latest release.
Come on, how can some of you still use IE . . . the worst browser ever made. That thing doesn't even understand Esc means 'stop loading the page' That reminds me of Yosemite Sam: "when I say woh mule, I mean woooooooooooooooooh mule.
I run Windows 10 and I like the new Edge: a better Chrome than Chrome with all the unwanted removed.
I only use Chrome for testing and still prefer IE for everything else. I really don't trust Google anymore.
I've been hammering on a parsing problem to compute all possible sequences of characters (aka "viable prefixes") that can result from a grammar rule. Permutation is often ugly and complicated and this is no different.
I'm glad I came off a win here recently with my parsing tutorial i published because I'm trying to use that sense of accomplishment to push through this problem.
The worst part of the problem being that I've got it almost working. Maybe you can relate there. "Almost working" is frustration. "Almost working" is a taunt as much as a challenge. "Almost working" can erode moral quicker than few other programming struggles.
So here I go. Deep breath. *cracks knuckles*
*remembers this same "almost working" issue caught me recently on my last problem and I solved it*
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
Well, not so much, really. I know you will all forgive me when I tell you it's about BASIC!
Somewhile A long time ago I had an HP 95C 75Ccalculator for which I wrote what was at that time a fairly useful program, in the only supported language - HP BASIC. It was larger than would fit in the 24K available, so I had jump through all sorts of hoops to get it to fit - like using ASCII characters to represent some integers.
I no longer have the 95C 75C, and have some how lost the manual - unusual for me - but I do still have the code listings, but there are no code comments, as space did not permit. I do have one listing with scribbled comments on it, but they are sparse in the extreme. Now I am in semi-retirement, I thought I would rewrite it for my Android - and here's the problem.
I made heavy use of a built-in function ANGLE(X,Y) but I cannot remember precisely what it did. Bear in mind that I was stuck with one character variable names plus A0 through Z9. I presume it took two sides of a right triangle and returned an angle - but which one?
So, gentlemen, your mission, if you choose to accept it, is burrow away in your memories and let me know which two sides were used to provide the angle.
