comment C - serialization techniques
To be honest, the easiest lossless serialisation method would be to stringify it. Not the most efficient, but otherwise you have to explicitly know about the memory representation yourself.

comment C - serialization techniques
@vexe: Yes, both byte and bit endianness for a start. Also simply the representation format used, especially for negative numbers (2's or 1's complement?).

comment Markdown handles inline bold text (within a word) incorrectly
@DavidGiven: Yeah, I'm aware of that now, but it's certainly not universally accepted that acronyms don't refer to initialisms. Traditionally, the term acronym was used by most to refer to both strict acronyms (as many would call them now) and initialisms... it's a point of contention among modern linguists, I've learnt.
