The pizza joint I went to framed a hole in the wall in the men’s washroom and called it “Fragile Masculinity”

I'm thinking this puzzle. But I haven't solved this yet..

0, 0, 4, 40, 31, 76, 50, 142, 31, □, 0, 0, …

@nsrahmad Pretty sure the author mant sqrt, not square: setting the value of x so that its square root is the given number.

Why macros are cool, a / perspective

(Near the end, I think the Author meant "square" whenever he wrote "sqrt")

"Owed" to a spell checker

Johannes Haushofer's CV of failure.

I liked his "meta-failure" so I will contribute to that myself.

Kranzberg's Laws of Technology

1. Technology is neither good nor bad; nor it is neutral.

2. Invention is the mother of necessity.

3. Technology comes in packages, big and small.

4. Although technology might be a prime element in many public issues, nontechnical factors take precedence in technology-policy decisions.

5. All history is relevant, but the history of technology is the most relevant.

6. Technology is a very human activity, and so is the history of technology.

Really good about

"Effectively Managing Documentation for Embedded Linux Projects" by Jeff Osier-Mixon (isn't specific to Embedded Linux)

Video and Audio quality is not very good but I am glad I watched it. Also needed slides because one important table isn't reable in the video.


A really good comic strip!

It makes more sense if you replace the dinasaurs with top-talent of our age and the guy-in-car with big corporations.

A short film C'était un rendez-vous by Claude Lelouch

basically driving a Ferrari as fast as the driver can in 1976 Paris.

"Some people can read a musical score and in their minds hear the music.... Others can see, in their mind's eye, great beauty and structure in certain mathematical functions....Lesser folks, like me, need to hear music played and see numbers rendered to appreciate their structures."
-- Peter B. Schroeder

So here is a equation:

x = cos(u) (e^cos(u) - 2 cos(4 u) - sin(u / 12)^5.0)

y = sin(u) (e^cos(u) - 2 cos(4 u) - sin(u / 12)^5.0)

Do you think billionaires are like slightly richer millionaires?

A million seconds is 12 Days.

A billion seconds is 31 YEARS.

If someone had the fortune to be able to save 100% of a six-figure salary (say, $100,000/year in this case), it would take 10 years to save up 1 million. It would take 10,000 years to save up 1 billion.

Billionaires should not exist. Not in a perfect world, and certainly not in our imperfect one.

As true about programming as for writing

"Ask yourself, as a reader, what piece of writing in all the world ... would [you] most want to read
if [you] had [your] heart’s choice.

The next step is terrible, but so simple I can hardly believe it as
I write it. You just sit down shamelessly and write the thing yourself." -- J.D Salinger
