Git is better for productivity than svn, especially with regard to handling branches and merging. The sooner we get away from it the better.
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).
So many of the Google Code projects are stuck on svn. Hope they migrate over to git.
Most software ends up in the trash anyway. That's just the way the tech industry is.
Better to shut down this product and have the engineers work on something that is more rewarding for everyone involved.
Also, China != Asia.
Uh oh. Peter Jackson has a new movie in development.
Perhaps my setup was more power draining than yours, but I had a keyboard, mouse and wifi dongle plugged in and the B+ didn't have enough juice to run them all. After switching to a powered hub it started working.
Imagine a 3D printer that can print a 3D printer half it's size, then use until you achieve nanotechnology.
as a full-time programmer I haven't cracked a single book or magazine related to programming in over a year. My extensive library collects extensive dust.
I'd suggest you read something, perhaps something outside of your professional area. Reading up on things outside of your area of focus can help you develop as a programmer, see things in a different light, etc...
The Republican nut jobs are a very small portion.

I agree with you that science would be better than just being a coder, but I think coding could help if it contributes to a person's ability to think logically and consistently.
President Obama identifies himself as a black man. I can't find the exact quote, but he once described himself as "a black man of mixed background". Another time he said “If I’m outside your building trying to catch a cab, they’re not saying, ‘Oh, there’s a mixed-race guy.’” The point is part of the reason he probably identifies as black is because that is how other people see him. Most people think in terms of simple race categories. (I myself am of mixed-race and I know it is a pain to have to explain this, often multiple times to the same people.)
If you look up the definition of abnormal in a dictionary, such as this one or this one. You get definitions like: ": different from what is normal or average : unusual especially in a way that causes problems" or "Not typical, usual, or regular; not normal; deviant. odd in behaviour or appearance; strange". So even if the word has a sense as you indicate, other senses of the word are pejorative.
Now dat just Cray.
