I eat with my hands, you insensitive clod!
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Sometimes, it's tough for parents to realize that yes, their kid is a fucking asshole.
Onion routing for the Postal Service! Now throw me a couple billion dollars so I can spend it all on hookers and blow.
A boy once asked a successful businessman what makes a man successful?
"Good decisions, my boy, good decisions!"
The boy thought for a moment and then asked how does a man learn how to make good decision?
"Bad decisions, my boy, bad decision."
I've found in life life I learn more from my mistakes than my successes. Similar to how poker players can rarely tell you about all the pots they've won, it's the big ones they lost that stand out in their minds.
Feel free to change gender of the examples. It doesn't change the message.
The Tea Party has shown that you don't need a third party to shift your party's stance on issues. By all rights, Tea Party doctrine was originally Libertarian Light, but realized the futility of supporting the Libertarian party with all it's other fruits and nuts to contend with. Occupy failed to materialize in any tangible gains for the Democrats (although it's fair to say Occupy was a type of Libertarian stance in and of itself: Many aligned with the "too much government" side; others in the "we need more regulation" side), but other than Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, most dems are doomed to taking safe routes to Capitol Hill. It's a shame, really, I'd love to see a full on crazy vs crazy war; at least it would force us to really examine the issues at stake.
"what's up there? This is stupid!"
Seriously, turn in your geek cards, every fucking one of you. I don't care what's up there, if someone wants to put a fucking space colony on the moon, FUCKING AWESOME. We're not going to get off this rock until people start doing shit, even if that shit fails and blows a lot of money, because we can learn from those failures and keep trying.
Seriously, it's like I just stumbled into high school again. "Who needs math, math is stupid! Why do you read science fiction, that's stupid!" Fuck off, some of us have dreams.
All the dust you can eat!
but FUCK no.
To "preserve the view", I vote we erect the turbines, but make them look like giant penises sticking out of the ocean.
I'd go with C++ as the toolchain is mature and if you want to do any GUI work there's Qt, etc. Obj-C is more limited on Linux, but I"m sure the Windowmaker guys would love to have some more folks on board.
My office has telecommute days where coming in is optional and more often than not, I make the trek through LA traffic to work in the office. Not as many distractions and, because many of our devs work from home, the office is nice and quiet.
blah blah blah shut the fuck up.
But dang, MS, you could write a check and it'd be a fucking rounding error on your earnings last year...
It's bad enough you gotta bunch of guys out there who read too much goddamned Tom Clancy and use military/police-esque terms for everything whilst wearing their size XXXXXL tactical camo pants, but do we really want to start throwing around terms like OPSEC? Goodie, you know a new term/acronym; you're still not a badass.
