2.) the McGill Outdoor Club‘s notion of a three-person tent is not the same as ours. ;-)

(And who the hell is supposed to sleep comfortably on that thermarest?)

Fantastic Graffiti in Old Montreal

Eric | August 30, 2008

Montreal is quite big but I cannot believe that it took me eight months to discover this new addition to Montreal’s public art scene. Montreal Graffiti Artist Jasmin Guerard-Alie painted this fantastic graffiti as part of a challenge by the City of Montreal. Martin Ujlaki has more about it.

The group of people was kind of interesting in the sense that I knew nobody in person when I got there. The primary may have been that there is a subtle difference between detecting software “defects” (which they focus on) and “API violations” (which I focus on): When looking for program points where API specifications are violated then your are given a specification. Therefore any usage of the API that does not conform with that specification is –by definition– an error, even if nothing bad actually happens.
