CS geek discoveries
Reading a journal article today ... I discovered two marvelous CS tidbits:
  • The term heisenbug --- which is a bug in a program that disappears when you try to debug it.
  • A nice little essay showing that virtually all versions of binary search and mergesort are broken.  (Evidence again that there's a huge difference between theory and practice.)
(aside ... I need a good computer geek icon ...)

Heisenbug. I knew there had to be a term for it!
