Should I merge the two lines, or keep them as is?

    Please split them in more then two linesπŸ˜‚

    Depends on if you want to do logging/debugging the function or not.

    @irene A height generator.

    That's unmaintainable write-only code.

    I don't know if this is applicable to an IDE as I'm a designer and not a a dev.
    In print design/typography the rule of thumb is that the optimal reading length is around 68-75 characters per line. (Or about 9-13 words). Font size is determined by text width. So if you have a text width of 120mm and you want 12 words per line, your font size should be choosen accordingly.
    But this is not strict rule.

    Plz use more memory to improve readability

    @leduyquang753 exactly. The very fact that @irene had to ask indicates serious problems

    @irene why the owl? Problems are not with you. With the code.

    This is unreadable code. Its too complicated for what it does. And lot i mean lot of shit is hardcoded. Really not great.

    @irene because you couldn't tell what the code does by just looking at it, w/o diving into implementation and analysing it

    Psh, could have written it as a single line... what a waste

    @heyheni yes, I do a blue vertical column at 75. I try to not go past it.

    I have some issues with this method:
    - getters should always only return their values and not compute them
    - magic numbers are the devil (32, 70, 1024... where do they come from and why?)
    - The return value computes even more, the computed return value should be a single variable here

    All in all what I would change is to cap the different operations into smaller, well defined methods and to extract all seemingly random numbers to constants which have a descriptive name. Also instead of getHeight it should be computeHeight or similar.

    How should someone understand these calculations when working from home for example? Not just one comment explaining a bit, random numbers, and long two lines.

    @leduyquang753 I could use some extra height...

    Do just a simple split.

    Split this lines into 4 classes. :P

    Join it, make it waaaay longer, cut it at 80 characters and add whitespaces so you can make ascii art.
