Dear LiveJournal,

Thank you for having my college1 already listed in your Schools database.

I love you.


1 Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST). ]  For those who aren't familiar with it, KAIST is often referred to as “the Korean MIT.”  The undergrad division, previously a separate school named KIT (Korea Institute of Technology), was indeed modeled after MIT as you can probably tell from its name.


*sigh* GCC/G++ 3.3 and libstdc++ 5...

They have this one corner-case STL bug which took me hours to track down.

The thing is...  On the production target platform (Debian 3.1 “sarge”) GCC/G++ 3.3 is the default compiler, and the 3.4 one should be referred to with the version number (like g++-3.4), whereas on the development platform (FreeBSD 5-STABLE) GCC/G++ 3.4 is the default system compiler, which has only one name: g++, not g++-3.4.

*sigh* Yeah, it's about time I learned how to use autoconf/automake.

You know what?  If you have to rely on advertisements so desperately that you wouldn't mind displaying one that takes a full login gateway page, that means your business model fucking sucks.

Best Wishes,
