We lost a few comments

Ladies and Gents,

Due to a database error and disjoint backup images, we have lost a few comments on questions posted over the past few days.
If you notice your answer is missing, please re-post it.

Update: We have opened comments on all questions posted in the last 15 75 (thats seventy five :) ) days

Update 2: Just because we have opened comments on 75 questions, it does not mean we have lost comments on all of them. We have lost a few comments posted in the range of 15-17th Sep.

We have a very super extra complicated way to check if your comment is indeed missing, but we will not do that. We will just trust you and give points :)


Recipe for disaster.

Identify this Turing Award winner, who at the age of 26 invented an algorithm which has now become the most popular way to do what it does :)

P.S: If you are a CS student, there is no way you have not studied his algorithm, unless you were in VTU and decided to skip the entire unit and “prepare” for only 4 questions :)
