“don’t diddle code to make it faster ... find a better algorithm.”

This is another of these fatuous "wisdoms" you are so ready to trot out.

How do you think better algorithms get developed?

Because thank goodness, there are some programmers that expend time and effort "diddling with code" to work out what works and what doesn't.


With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

The start of some sanity?
