These are all videos by the Piano Guys. Their range goes from top 100 to 100 years ago.
We haven't had musical delicacies on the ClearChannel pop scene for a long time now. FTFY
I drive a full size, 15 passenger van. When I first started driving it, I was polite, gave plenty of advance notice that I was changing lanes, merging, turning, yada, yada, yada.
What I quickly learned is that people can't seem to see the dang thing. Its like I'm driving with a cloaking device on. So now I just go. I'm bigger than about 90% of everyone else, they will move, or I will win. Yeah, it's fucked, but that's also why I carry good insurance.
In case you couldn't tell, that was sarcasm.
The job I illustrated was the job that broke the proverbial camel's back for me. Enough with the being treated poorly. Now I will agree with you the guys in the dept with me were mostly cool, it seems that management collects a disproportionate amount of douchebaggery.
I'm happy with where I'm at now. I'm self-employed, and as long as women are having babies, I'm not at risk of being downsized, outsourced, or insourced.
I was playing in vi when I was still in high school. Why? Because I've always enjoyed code. My mom *gasp* was a hacker in the early '80s, and taught me how to code on my apple ][e. There are others, but often we're treated to a "pics or it didn't happen" mentality. Sometimes it's easier to just leave gender out of it.
I still like to geek, and am raising a pod full of little geeklings, but now I'm a midwife rather than a network engineer. I find I prefer working with wetware over hardware any day
As a 30 year old, my paper book collection exists solely as tomes and tomes of medical texts. My digital collection, which is primarily fiction, exceeds 1GB of data...
Up until about 5 years ago I used to tote well over 2000 books around whenever we moved. When my husband and I were looking at yet another cross-country move he begged me to consider donating the books and moving to digital formats - if nothing else than to save his back.
While I enjoy curling up with a cup of tea and a good book, I admit there's a certain tactile and sensory experience that is missing from an e-reader.
