My favorite: "I want to become a bratwurst" (because "bekommen" ~ (to) recieve sth.) Well, go ahead and become a bratwurst!

(the modern product looks nothing like this old ad and I would never in good conscience recommend it to anyone who has known the taste of real wurst)

That series has such a confusing naming scheme. Installments are named after the system they’re on, except when they aren’t.

I hate scripts bogging things down as much as the next guy (I was browsing on a 5 year old machine until recently, and I would have kept on doing that had my schoolwork not gotten media-heavy), but on this scale it’s not hurting much. Degrading gracefully is important on the same principles that advocate simplicity. Moreover, redundant client-side form simplification does not present much more of a security problem than someone with malicious intent could create on their own.

I understand a lot of this site’s past concerns with JavaScript (among other things, making an unmaintainable mess of code, failure to be usable without it...); really, I’ve been here for a while. But I don’t think that’s what I’m advocating. Worldwide browser share is enough up-to-date that nonintrusive scripts that don’t strictly need to be enabled would only help, in my opinion.

604
Hm, it’s more like HTML4 is like JavaScript is in the friendzone and HTML5 is like they’re into full-on sloppy makeouts.

605
I think you guys forgot the part where I mentioned we're not using any javascript. ;)
Didn’t forget, just don’t think it at all a sensible requirement in the year 2012 where five out of the top five websites use JavaScript extensively. It seriously doubt it would be as much work as a previous post implies, either. All the Good UI bones in my body reel from the prospect of presenting more non-applicable options than applicable ones.

It’s the dropbears you should be worrying about.

It’s okay, someone else even made a whole thread for it.

BRPXQZME, I'm not having a very hard time understanding what he means here. Why are you?
I understand perfectly well. I also have seen plenty of classmates—most of them 16–19 years old at the time—get cut down due to bad assumptions in all too many years of math classes.

That's not what I meant. I mean the ordered pairs. Like xy in the algebra system. I didn't mean that arrays and algebra coordinates were the same. I meant the ordered pairs are the same.
That’s wrong, too. Algebraic coordinates are continuous.

It is indeed O(n2), which is indeed no good. You can’t avoid that for the second loop (technically), but in both cases more efficient code would use memset, which will be faster and less error-prone.

They are not the same at all! Algebra coordinates stretch off to infinity and array coordinates are limited, for one. In fact, you exceed these limits in your first set of for loops. The next difference is why you don’t crash anything: the location after map[r][29] is map[r+1][0] for r<29.

Also, these nested for loops are very inefficient ways to handle character arrays and the only reason it’s not causing trouble is that these are not very big arrays.

615
Drop-down items shouldn’t be selectable if non-applicable (this can be JavaScript-aided and server-enforced, which would degrade gracefully for those with JavaScript disabled).

Radical searches will not help.

I never actually figured out what that one was. Even a Chinese dictionary didn’t show me anything convincingly close. 収 was a candidate from the usual suspects, but it’s only on the assumption that it’s written an unusual way, for which I find no attestation. Same goes for 友 except again, no idea what that would mean whereas 収束 is definitely a word.

In reality, though, it’s called 16 credit hours and a job, or how to not have much of a life.

I think the lack of soundproofing would also lead to regret.

If I had to guess, the orangey thing on top is the case.
