Comment Switches

What are comment switches and how to use them? To comment and uncomment certain blocks of code repeatedly, I use what I call a "comment switch", allowing me to switch a block of code on or off with a single character. It looks like this://* printf("I am active!\n"); // *//* printf("I am commented out!\n"); // */
Switch between two code blocks with a single character:
//* printf ("I am active!\n"); /*/ printf ("I am commented out!\n"); // *//* printf("Now I am commented out!\n"); /*/ printf("And I am active!\n"); // */Addendum:
I recently found a forum posting where a similar comment switch was proposed:
/* comment /* *///* uncomment /* */

Net Worth

You can find out how much your blog is worth.

My blog is worth $0.00.
How much is your blog worth?

My blog is worth $0.00. Wow. That's how much I paid for it.

Speaking of net worth... BYC is talking about installing finger docks. That sounded great, until I found out how they planned to pay for them. They plan to charge every member $5000. Welcome to the club. One would think the avenues of fund raisers, sponsorships, donations and volunteerism ought to be explored. I feel that maintenance and improvements to club property should be done within a budget laid out in BYC's operating plan, but I haven't yet put my two cents in to the Commodore or manager.

Oh, wait... according to Technorati, I haven't got two cents.
