Comment: Perl: TMTOWTDI (Score 5, Insightful) 729

I used to think that Perl's feature of "There's More Than One Way To Do It" was great until I had to start modifying and maintaining the code of other developers, (several over the years). 20+ years I've been with Perl and I gotta say that through the years this has probably caused me more frustration than anything. Python, comparatively speaking, is a dominatrix and I'm starting to enjoy "There's Only One Way To Do It".

Comment: Why not? Learn from Verizon.. (Score 2) 147

The broadcasters are not happy with this move, of course, claiming that Aereo should not be allowed to flip-flop on how it defines itself.

Verizon has been on a tear to get itself reclassified as a common carrier for a while.

Loopholes: not just for big companies anymore.

Hi folks, I have wondered about this.... If you have a product like TrueCrypt and get a National Security Letter telling you that you can't talk about it, does that include your attorney? I seem to remember that someone decided to sue NSA over this... Just curious...

Put your best foot forward. Or just call in and say you're sick.
