Threads in C++

Very cool stuff: Trip Report: Ad-Hoc Meeting on Threads in C++.
I recommend to have a good breakfast first (I read it at lunch time and had stir-fried noodles first). Then grab a cup of coffee. Breath in and out. Sit down and read.

Inventing new words

The Old New Thing: You can invent new adjectives too.
Don’t know why, but it is considered OK to invent & use new English words. I remember Aaron Brethorst inventing the word “Suckage” quite a while ago.
Unfortunately, this doesn’t work in German. You are not supposed to invent new words. We’re missing out on all the fun!
