Boobies
 
2012-07-25 02:30:18 PM
Nice.
 
2012-07-25 02:30:51 PM
Awesome. Now lets make this about geek boobies. Not the man variety though.

Well penguins, if reducing the offensive language in your codebase is your true goal you have a bit more work ahead of you...

Oh yeah, NSFW language in that link. DON'T GET OFFENDED!

Were I not in a library, I'd be laughing my ass off right now.

The big boobies weren't a problem, until a few Linux programmers realized that in their 30+ years of life, they hadn't seen such appendages.

What's wrong with allowing 2,976,579,765 guest IDs? Especially if they're well endowed?

Microsoft fixed the problem by converting 0xB16B00B5 to its decimal value - 2976579765

Next up: MacAfee will add a big boobs scanner to wipe out any instances it find in your memory or storage.

So, hex dump will show that those big boobies are still there.
 
2012-07-25 05:05:57 PM
OK, so they fixed it not by changing the value but by changing the representation of the value.

Newsflash, any number can be represented by any symbol or series of symbols that you want. Since all those numbers in the linux kernel can be represented as any series of symbols, I observe that the kernel is literally FILLED with porn URLs. Those sleazy sons of biatches.

For shame.

TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: The whole thing has been a truly grand example of people getting amazingly worked up over some ridiculously inane stuff.


What's fun, of course, is the whole "Microsoft is obviously sexist" push when the use of this particularly odious hexadecimal value (...huh?) was discovered and discussed in a previous thread, as though Microsoft had made a corporate decision to objectify & demean women by leaving in a particularly odious hexadecimal value.

Now we also know Linux did, too - remember, although this code was added by a couple of Microsoft employees, it's open source and, realistically, was probably one of the most-scrutinized blocks of Linux code ever added to the kernel. Linux folks apparently had no problem with the value during all this scrutinization, either.

I'n pretty sure the language in the Windows source tree is equally blue. I hate to say it but it's source code, if it compiles fine then who gives a crap? It'll spend most of its time as machine code.

Men have boobs too. Implying otherwise is incredibly sexist. As a man with boobs I am outraged.

You know, the fact that this code had been in the kernel since 2009 and that someone just now found these particular lines when ANYONE can look at the code and modify it doesn't make me feel good about the attention that the open-source community pays to its code.

There's a rather large difference between, "found these particular lines" and "found these particular lines and did something other than ignore them or chuckle to themselves." I can almost guarantee you they were seen; no one cared. I get the feeling the open source community still doesn't really care. Tumblrites on the other hand... I bet they'll stick to this for at least half a week before getting distracted.

You know, the whole thing could be a crack about the OSS community in general, but there just isn't a hex character for 'm'.

Microsoft's code management system does have automatic scanners that look for potentially offensive terms

Interesting. A few years ago (maybe 10 now?) there was a significant leak of Windows source code onto the Internet. The most impressive thing I remember about it is there was no foul language, not even in comments. It all makes sense now.

Having the federal government looking over their shoulder didn't hurt Microsoft - in some ways, it improved Microsoft's culture, as they were able to put in a number of processes & tools that didn't just ensure compliance with the decree, but improved how Microsoft did business. FxCop, comment scrubbing, increased UE/UA interaction, and so on - very useful. It forced the company to mature in a number of ways.
