Dennis Ritchie the inventor of the C programming language and a major player in the invention of UNIX has passed away, The significance of the invention of C alone cannot be underestimated, It is probably the most widely used programming language in the world and almost everything that happens on any device your using, will involve C in its creation from a software programming perspective. He is probably more important than steve jobs and Tim berners Lee combined, but because programming is less recognisably sexy than the internet or an ipad by the general public, and Dennis’s decency of nature meant he was quieter than steve jobs would have been about his invention, he will be less memorialised than most icons of the computer age, and this post is here to remind people that he should be remembered in the same breath and thought of having the same stature as the other well known icons of the digital era.
How many lines od C or C++ code exist in the world no-one knows, and its such a difficult task to estimate that I doubt anyone has ever tried to even attempt an estimate ?
Cameron and his ilk up that way are parasites on culture, lets be honest i would never entrust to such a person with the defense of our borders they live in a false idyll compared to where the majority live, until theyre sending theyre children to a state academy school in finsbury park or brixton, then I dont think they have a right to pass judgement on multiculturalism and immigration as a wonderfull and primary belief, that must be entrenched and indoctrinated into the common people at all costs, such as we appear to experience in this culture, and lockup all those who dont believe in and rally against it, this is a fascist liberal state we are living in that is committing people culture suicide, purely so as to appear super ammicable and non racist in some ridiculous overt who can be more multicultural than america competition. America was founded on immigration britain was not, certainly in the 500 year time frame. ANd i personally feel that the level of immigration and multicuturalism that has been enforced on the major urban centres has been completely out of control for forty years. And this government is no different in investing money to defend the rights of foreign people abroad rather than actually defend our own borders, which should be the primary purpose of any army. Certainly I would be much happier to see someone become prime minister who had seen all sides of british culture, not just from another privileged background such as cameron.
we would be good if it were to support an efficiency drive through using technology with royalmail.
we all know this is to fill the public sector employees underfunded pension blackhole, the employees did’t pay enough of a share in, to justify the size of the pension they wanted, this price rise will help fill the pensions black hole and drive some custom away, it just wont improve the service enough to help them survive in the future efficiently, it will make selling online even more expensive and will kill private ebay sales which are already suffering because of the associated costs of doing so including post.
