Wash: Well, I wash my hands of it. It's a hopeless case. I'll read a nice poem at the funeral. Something with imagery. Zoe: You could lock the door and keep the power-hungry maniac at bay. Wash: Oh, no, I'm starting to like this poetry idea now. Here lies my beloved Zoe, my autumn flower, somewhat less attractive now she's all corpsified and gross...

Well not canonically, no, but this is transformative fiction.

What DX said. The description on the profile page describes what folder the thread is in. If it's not in the Closed Folder (or the Site Admin folder), it's not going to say so.

"We are the Goon Squad and we're coming to town...Beep! Beep!" - David Bowie, "Fashion"

Where's the old thread? It's not in the closed threads link, so I'm just curious.

What is even happening?

Like DX said, it doesn't get moved to closed right away - it's in the main thread list.

It really should be named "++ Buffistas Building a Better Board".

Sir, it's not an offence to let your cat eat your bacon. Okay? And we don't arrest cats, I'm very sorry.

Yeah. But I think fewer people are familiar with that syntax.

Also, I think it's more important to have the basic thread name first than to have it be compilable.

Now let us crush something soft and watch it fountain blood. That is a girlish thing to want to do, yes?

That logic never worked on any of my CS profs. (Nor any of my compilers, for that matter)

You always do this. We get tipsy, and you take advantage of my love of the scientific method.

It really should be named "++ Buffistas Building a Better Board".

I thought the whole idea was that it was supposed to be a riff off of the name "C++." t knows nothing about C syntax...

Yes. But the name "C++" is a riff off of incrementing variables in C, which can actually be done two ways - eg: x++ or ++x. Putting the '++' after the variable means the variable is "looked at" before it's incremented. So, if Buffistas_Building_a_Better_Board = 1, and you have the expression y = Buffistas_Building_a_Better_Board++, y will = 1, as Buffistas_Building_a_Better_Board is not incremented to 2 until after y is assigned. OTOH, the expression y = ++Buffistas_Building_a_Better_Board will result in y=2 (as well as Buffistas_Building_a_Better_Board=2).

OK, that was way too much explanation, right?
