He then goes on the explain the Cartesian Co-ordinate system with jaw-dropping incredulity.

With all due respect, cartesian is kinda rare in computers, 95% of GUI toolkits deal with screen coordinates, where 0,0 is top left corner

    My post was intended to be somewhat light-hearted with references to corpses, graveyards and undead. My main bone of contention (in the second paragraph) was with the author stating what the reader was used to: the author is in no position to make such a claim and, frankly, anyone who's ever seen a graph of sales/growth/whatever over time will be familiar with the general principle of Cartesian coordinates (even if they don't know that's what they're called). I have no disagreement with your comment about GUI toolkits.

[Discipulus]: ah this is another interesting point: how to know if a module is or is not thread safe?
[Discipulus]: .. sorry mario if i'm bothering you at 5:46
[choroba]: Some modules mention their thread safety in the documentation
[choroba]: if they don't, it's safer to asume they aren't safe
[Discipulus]: maybe one day i'll ask is sopw: like a 9 prove for thread safety will be good
