18:06 miner49r joined #rosettacode
18:08 miner49r newbie question: if we don't like a particular solution to a rosetta code task, should we overwrite it with a fix or add a second solution (in the same language)?
18:45 mikemol joined #rosettacode
18:47 mwn3d_phone miner49r: if the solution is incorrect (i.e. does not meet the task requirements) then you can replace it with a working example if you have one or add "{{incorrect|insert your reason here}}" above it.
18:47 mwn3d_phone If it just doesn't look right to you then just add your example underneath and bring it up in the talk page for the task
18:48 mwn3d_phone And try to give nice calm reasons for it. Don't make it look like you're attacking the other author (even if you want to attack them :p).
18:50 sorear welcome back, mikemol.
18:51 mikemol I'd never be away if I could get enough time to fix either of my desktop boxes at home.
18:51 mikemol Every single frelling time I have _time_ (read: a couple hours or thereabouts) to work on it, I discover a new problem.
18:53 mikemol Starting with a failing motherboard...which I only discovered a *month* after the machine first went down, because I simply didn't have time to sit down in front of the thing and poke it. Then it took a couple weeks to get the replacement parts (and time to install them). Then took another couple weeks before I found time to try an OS install. Then another couple weeks before I got the replacement hardware config sorted out.
18:54 mikemol And then I discover that the software update problem that took the two machines almost three months ago is reproducable...and was still as utterly inscrutable and difficult to diagnose as it was the two weeks leading up to the final failure.
18:55 miner49r mwn3d_phone: OK thanks for the suggestion.  In this case, the solution gives the correct answer, but has some style issues so I'll just add mine with appropriate comments.
18:55 mikemol I _might_ have a lead, this time. But, $@%#, I hate glibc updates.
18:56 mikemol The lack of functioning computers has stretched out a bunch of other problems. Like finding time to work on RC again. Or even normal lifestyle stuff at home.
18:56 sorear Oh
18:56 mikemol The accumulation of stress has been causing other things to burst, too.
18:56 sorear For some reason I thought you were away because honeymoon
18:57 sorear (which made your entry message on #perl6 interesting)
18:57 mikemol Heh
18:57 mikemol Honeymoon was only four days.

19:33 mwn3d_phone miner49r: If the four bit adder solution is what you were asking about before I would suggest adding your example in a separate lang tag and maybe with an explanation of why yours is different
