Because it's written in C.
To quote yaakov34 on : News
There was a discussion here a few years ago about memory vulnerabilities in Some people tried to argue back then that various protections offered by modern and runtimes, such as address space randomization, and the availability of tools like for finding memory access bugs, mitigates this...
My opinion, then and now, is that C and other languages without memory checks are unsuitable for writing secure code ...

I've done paid and semi-paid programmer mentoring for a while, and I'm going to tell you what it's like.
In 2010 I ran a coaching service, basically mentoring other programmers for an hourly rate. It made good money, but I shut it down for two fairly capricious reasons. First, I had several people who never showed up for their sessions, but continued paying me, and I didn't have any policy in place to manage things if these folks suddenly said, " OK, I've paid you …
I've got a design I like, and I want to explain its motivations.
I'm from Chicago, and in the 90s I went to a lot of raves in San Francisco. I was more of a nerdy hermit in Chicago (and am more of a nerdy hermit today), but I remember being surprised in San Francisco by the way everybody danced facing the DJ. In clubs in Chicago, everybody danced facing each other, which is to say, pointed in a thousand different random directions.
The dance music history an …
A tweet got me started on the idea.
(I started withwhen I was 11, and began doing all kinds of random web stuff long before I ever learned , but better late than never.)
To be fair, I basically already learned a workshop on algorithmic music in and translated what I was learning into Clojure so I could use Lisp and to make MIDI-controlled generative art and Markov chain basslines …last year, in the sense that I took
I've made a few things in the process.
Here's a TIE fighter:
Here's a bunch of them, plus an Imperial Star Destroyer:

Here's some ravey visuals, plus soundtrack :
And here's some quick spirals:
I met Jim at several conferences, indeed in 2008 I think we did three of the same conferences in a row. It was like we were travel neighbors. I think I first met him at a Pragmatic workshop where he taught me and a room full of other programmers how to do TDD. He was warm, generous, and positive, and a great example of the old-school Ruby attitude. He will definitely be missed.
