Just wondering how does that or this happiness improves anything in life of a common nerd who has to struggle with his/her own communication ineptitude and social awkwardness? Or how does that apply to poor neurologically typical sods that work in IT and have to struggle with the nerds around them as well as with the awkwardness of working with code? In other words: how long will they stay happy (if they ever were)? Just wondering. A nice set of questions for a start of a drinking session. Come to think of it I may even get up, go out and start drinking now....
V = 4/3 r cubed...
1300 cubed is 2,200,000,000 - isn't it?
Here I ftfy!
I have counted 26 linked explanations what ISP means in this wiki article. I admit: big part of the list would be eliminated by context but not knowing what ISP means may be a sign of too many abbreviations being used and too few 3 letter combinations possible. It may be a sign of something else too....
Lately I have developed a habit of asking people what they mean by particular 'acronym' after I noticed that I often do not know what the conversation is really about and an old strategy of waiting for explanation that surely comes later is very often futile. I often encounter people that know as little as I do about what the particular 'acronym' actually means. After I started doing this at work, I noticed that there are quite some 'acronyms' that have no meaning whatsoever. To make an example not violating NDA - I take NDA which then is not Non Disclosure Agreement and not even Net Daemons Associates but Automatic Installation Procedure. I think there are people doing it on purpose... Damned terrorists!!!
* - if you are wondering what that heck that is, I can help, as I tried that once myself (out of curiosity). The two metal things are old type razor blades connected directly with the power supply and separated with matches or some other isolator. You put it into water and it boils in few seconds. The dangers are: you can electrocute yourself or brake the fuse but if it worked then you had an advantage of not very well tasting tee or coffee.
I recall that old platforms on which we worked were so robust that new ways did not cause too much trouble. New platforms are so much better than it is enough to look at them and they break. I strongly believe however that this has nothing to do with the change of approach that we discuss here. And if it does than It must be that we skipped the human sacrifice part and people are frustrated trough lack of entertainment.
I do not think we are even remotely there so you can relax.
