Please RT / boost!

Programming in C can be very satisfying if you lower your productivity expectations sufficiently. I mean, OK it took me an hour to write the 1001st string splitting function in this code, but it's very elegant and probably only has 3 memory bugs in it.

That was a stressful half hour, while debugging that.

It's wrong to take advantage of gullible people. But it can be funny.

Another day, another social media post proclaiming RSS to be dead, delivered to me via an RSS feed.

There's nothing like waking up late on a Sunday morning and see a warning about a degraded RAID array.

I'm enjoying my bi-weekly meeting with Daniel about our hobby project, Subplot. Yes, a one-two hour meeting every second Sunday. And we keep minutes.
