Many of them are crap. Another chunk are essentially duplicates where I have taken 20 photos to capture a moment.
Why keep the crap? Why keep the duplicates? When I organize pictures from a trip or whatever into an album my tools are a file manager, an image viewer, and a couple of really simple Java programs I wrote to rename files in bulk. As part of the process I delete the crap and the duplicates. I pick the one out of twenty pictures that best captures the moment and delete the rest.
I don't understand why Apples to Apples is so popular. I'll play almost anything. But Apples to Apples is one of the very few games I will refuse to play.
I have maybe ten Apples to Apples games under my belt. I just never really have fun with it.
I agree that it's a problem but I don't think it's Unicode's. I don't think the consortium has set out to do anything but encode characters (and I think they're doing a good job). I imagine that coming up with a font for all those characters would be another massive undertaking.
And as much as I champion free software I would have no problem with a company stepping in and filling that need by selling such a font.
People may consider it selfish of us, but I'm not sure I want to bring any more human beings into this already over crowded world.
I'm wondering why anyone would consider you not wanting kids selfish. I've decided a long time ago that I would never want to father more than a single kid precisely because of overpopulation.
Super Hexagon. OMG this game is addicting.
I enjoyed some features, (mail delivery and calendaring is much better on the BB than on Android), but the lack of apps was very disheartening.
I'm curious about how BlackBerry does email and calendaring much better. They work pretty great on my Nexus 4.
Jesus. The problem isn't falling for another developer. The problem is falling for and going out with a developer on your own team which just isn't a good idea.
Don't dip your pen in the company ink.
One of my favorite stories, for example, is Isaac Asimov's the Last Question. It doesn't get into details about how the computer works, what variables it's considering, or even how humanity is evolving. It merely postulates that, with each generation, technology becomes more accessible and more integrated into our lives. In an ironic twist, it suggests that we begin to become a part of technology to a point where our minds fuse with AI and become a single consciousness.
The Last Question is my favorite short story. You can read it here. You won't regret it.
