Two things - actually, three:
- That code executes once, because it's in the constructor. Clarity >> saving one multiplication and one division calculation during initialization.
- The Java compiler should optimize this, making it irrelevant anyway - that is, the compiled .class file will be the exact same bytecode.
- Please spend more time writing bots and less time posting on the wiki. I'm sorry for being blunt. I've never been in this situation, but your posts are mostly inane, to the point that I sometimes wonder if you're the most successful troll I've ever encountered.
I agree with Voidious (except that I don't mind being blunt as much as he seems to). Your questions/suggestions are usually poorly researched and annoying. IIRC, the time you joined the wiki was roughly the time activity here started to die off. I can't speak for others, but personally, the frequency of your questions and the ridiculousness of the subject matter made me stop frequenting the wiki as much as I had previously. (Though in fairness, college work also had some impact, that was more in the realm of coding and less in the realm of "robowiking"). I suggest that we implement some sort of warning system (say three consecutive "ridiculous questions/suggestions") and then a temporary ban.
