Mathematicians Shed Light on Minimalist Conjecture,
“The conjecture speculates that, statistically speaking, half of all
elliptic curves have rank 0 (meaning that they have either finitely
many rational points or none at all) and half have rank 1 (meaning
that their infinite set of rational points can be generated
essentially from just one point).”
Too DRY – The Grep Test, by Jamie Wong.
“If any code declares or makes use of a function, class, module, or
variable that cannot be located by grepping for its full identifying
token, it fails the Grep Test.” Oh yes.
The Garden-of-Eden theorem was the first rigorous result of cellular
git-imerge, incremental merge and rebase for Git.
Portable conditionals in makefiles, yikes!
