  • Q: What is an exception safe code?
    A: A code may throw an exception but at the same time if it:
    • Doesn't allow any memory (allocated by it) to be leaked.
    • Lets the program to remain in a well-defined state (no dangling pointers
      and all) so that execution can continue as intended.
    • Reports the error to the caller (when encountered).
    then it can be termed as an exception safe code.

    Of course, a code which won't be throwing any exception ever is an exception

Put a Hold on that Newegg Boycott

Posted 06-13-2012 at 11:48 AM by Skaperen

It seems Newegg was quick to deal with the situation they had, which was reported yesterday, regarding a rejection of return of a computer that had Linux installed on it.

I'm still concerned about their procedures for wiping off used data storage devices before reselling them to customers, inside a computer or not.

With The Linux Foundation gaining Samsung as a Platinum supporter, it occurred to me that it's pretty unique how Linux in particular and Free software in general allows all sorts of individuals and organisations to get together productively. Just look at the list of contributors to the Linux kernel and the different organisations involved with The Document Foundation for a couple of examples.

Have I not updated this for over a year? OMG where does time go? So little time for projects :-(
A good place to start for all things to do with electrical interfacing is "Adafruit" and they have an excellent tutorial section which starts out very basic and then develops into real techy stuff, a must read.
