select VS inherit expanded
To be short, I don't understand in what way the "inherit expanded"
feature solves the classical diamond inheritance scheme :
class A ... end
class B inherit A ... end
class C inherit A ... end
class D inherit B, inherit C ... end
as it may be sometimes *useful* for D to conforms to A, B and C
altogether (consider for example STREAM, INPUT_STREAM, OUTPUT_STREAM and
The "inherit expanded" syntax forces D not to conform to B or C, whereas

I have a spare partition (previously occupied by a now unneeded Linux
partition) that I want to combine with another partition (JFS
formatted). LVM has an option to expand an existing JFS partition which
I could use.
Obviously, LVM's expand will obviate the need to backup, then restore
the existing partition, a major time-saver. I'm curious, though, if
there's any drawbacks to expanding a JFS partition, compared to deleting
both partitions, then combining them.

In the ongoing discussion here about alternatives to the RM, the subject of
pointers keeps coming up.
AFAIK, one of the features of the RM is that the interconnectedness of data
is established by common data values, instead of pointers.
In my view, pointers are "good things" not "bad things". But there are
plenty of "good things" that will harm you if you don't use them right. One
of the ways a network or graph data base achieves performance is by the

I am a JSP developer and am constantly feeling like I am missing the
boat by not using any of the other frameworks out there.
However, the couple I have looked at (JSF and Rails) don't impress me.
In JSP, I keep all of my logic in Servlets/Beans and all of my
presentation in the JSP file, making custom tags when I need to do some
HTML that involves some logic. So Servlets and Tags are the glue to the
JSPs and Beans. I don't see what is wrong with this model. The
biggest advantage is its flexible.

Well, I've had fun with Tex and LaTeX for a while now, but I'd like to
know how well the alternatives work, and weather or not I should use these
alternatives that are listed usually with TeX. What are your opinions on
them, and surely, some must do a job better than the rest (Something must
do pictures and tables better) and I probably will use the best one for
the specific jobs that may come up in the future.
Basically, I'm just asking for a list of strengths and weaknesses that

I have written a web page comparing the verbosity and speed of four
different (progressively optimised) mini ray tracers written in C++, Java,
OCaml and SML:
Essentially, the results indicate that Java is extremely slow (5x slower
than the fastest implementation) and extremely verbose, OCaml is extremely
concise (only 60 lines of code for the minimal implementation of the ray
tracer) and Mlton-compiled SML is extremely fast (much faster than the
other three languages).

Dear Friends of Forth,
I have just found Forth and am excited about it. But i need to clarify
its benefits in pc programming rather than using c, c++ or Java or a
scripting language. Then there is speed of execution. Seems Forth is
like Lisp in that it can be used to write or extend one's own language
because you can build up your own definitions. Lisp is powerful and
expressive and fast prototyping like Forth but usually slow. Forth can
go down further to lower level programming - powerful. But is the speed
one gets without heavy tweaking better than most other languages?
