Thanks for the link, just watched all four parts. I'm not

lecture a bunch of
young padewan. His half-float example was likely too
low-level for that
audience, better to show something you'd do in ruby or
explain how it'd run _much_ faster in D, while not much more
From what Walter said, they all knew c. So not really too low
But half-float uses the 'alias this' trick, furthemore on a
function. Without a bit of D knowledge you can't get how it's
Yeah I agree, alias this was definitely too much for them.
But half float wasn't an issue IMO.
Actually, the 'alias this' is probably not that much a problem.
