Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
I've been a software developer for 17 years and my goal has always been to do things in the easiest manner. I have written about what I have learned here: http://www.altsd.com/
I do things differently, and have gotten in a lot of arguments with my peers in the past, yet I generally finish my tasks well ahead of them. The site is only for new programmers and open-minded programmers. Some of it may conflict with other things you have read, largely because academics don't seem to value getting things done quickly and efficiently (they don't mind if it takes 6 months). Let me know what you think. Cheers."
"It was really hard to do because you've got to remember that I was trying to make it usable over a 300 baud modem. That's also the reason you have all these funny commands. It just barely worked to use a screen editor over a modem. It was just barely fast enough. A 1200 baud modem was an upgrade. 1200 baud now is pretty slow."
...and so my son begun The Holy Editor War."

NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION: MAKE A MILLION DOLLARS
Brokenhearted and Homeless, Just Days After Christmas, a Dallas Man's New Year's Resolution is to Keep his Spirits High and to Make a Million Dollars.
Dallas, TX. — For many, New Year's resolutions have been ambitious decisions to lose weight, to quit smoking, to get out of debt, or to find a new job. When a man found himself brokenhearted and evicted from his home just days after Christmas, he set himself an even loftier goal, to keep his head up and to make a million dollars!
Just three days after Christmas, in a story that reads like a comical, tear jerker movie, a Dallas man's girlfriend suddenly ended their two and a half year relationship and ousted him from their place of residence. Depressed and dejected, Corey Stewart made a New Year's resolution to turn every negative into a positive for an entire year. "I'd just finished reading Shad Helmstetter's 'What to Say When You Talk To Yourself' and vowed to turn my life around," explains Stewart with a confident smile. "I simply make up my mind, speak positively to myself, and then do it."
Stewart did just that. Less than 48 hours later he decided to make a million dollars through a website that modeled the successful milliondollarhomepage.com. Stewart's site contains an image of the former couple, which will slowly be replaced by paid advertisements that are displayed over the picture. Pixel by pixel the negative is turned into a positive.
When asked about his motivation, Stewart replied, "I do this with no ill will towards her. Whether the site succeeds or fails does not matter. I'm simply turning my life around with a well timed New Year's Resolution. What's more important to me is the hope to inspire others not to give into despair but instead to see the opportunities in the worst of times."
