I've just learned why no one calls on the JMX of our servers (besides most not knowing what it's good for): because it makes JBoss go down.
I shall be touching code again, pretty soon. Only Java, but hey! (Seriously, the things I force myself to do for money sometimes sicken me.)
Besides not tracking you, DuckDuckGo also avoids the gimmicks Google has gotten into recently and instead concentrates on delivering results
@TotherAlistair Any chance of visiting Switzerland too? It's a damn nice place, you know…
TwitBird and Twitterrific blocks me. Osfoora seems to work. What gives?
@TotherAlistair Wow, didn't know that. Still, keep us posted whenever you're around! Getting paid in CHF isn't exactly the worst nowadays:-)
@alblue Well, if this is how you intend to tweet more, I'm getting concerned about what kind of blog posts to expect from you:-D
@TwitBird Thanks Twitbird, get better soon! The others all suck in various ways:-)
Well, they did let trashbat.co.ck in:-) RT @stevie_chambers: Apparently the .co.ck registrar has no sense of humour
The kids will dance to anything as long as it's Basement Jaxx. It must be the bass. Or the genes.
@tweetingsapp Is it possible that you don't show conversation threads (on the iPhone) or am I missing something?
What this WikiLeaks affair proves, is that we undeniably arrived in Orwell's 1984.
1984 depicts a “world of perpetual war” - check -, “pervasive government surveillance” - check - and “incessant public mind control” - check
In other news: I want TwitBird back!
RT @KevlinHenney: SRP is not a class design principle: it's a code design principle. It applies to packages, classes, methods, loops, etc.
Sometimes saying “it's twenty diameters in width” is better than saying nothing. – It's been two days and I'm still keepin on
Yay, I've managed to track down a compact Apple keyboard on USB. Not having to switch off the keyboard adds a kind of nice touch to the Mac.
RT @billynewport RT @darachennis RT @mdzimm RT @shaver “Knuth taught me the answers. Dijkstra taught me the questions.”
Of course, it must also be said, that the idea of living in a fully transparent society is a rather naiive one.
Instead of bitching about DB2, I'll praise Postgres for saving my day. Installs from zip, runs without a service, impossible not to love it!
One of Postgres and Toplink doesn't like the other. This dislike cost me a full workday. Tomorrow I'll win and bypass the quarelling couple.
@logosity Now you made me jealous. I too would like to learn lolcat with that fluency! Is there a course for that?
@logosity Ah, thx. Learning languages from holy books, sounds like a reasonable and rewarding idea. Thought I'd have to acquire three cats!
On the downside, I spend my days fighting the most obnoxious regression test environment ever. On the upside, there is one.
All you hackers disappointed with delicious now please channel your frustration constructively into fixing Scuttle
Btw, true to my Cassandric reputation I've closed my delicious account months ago and moved everything over into Scuttle.
Scuttle is full of good intentions and half decent, half braindead features. Would be on my list to contribute to: low effort, great impact.
It's been two weeks without TwitBird and I dislike the other Twitter apps with every day a little bit more:-/
Here's hoping that none of my bosses reads about EROEI and comes to the idea of applying it to our IT projects.
It's proven. I can't and I won't touch type ever. But I'm happy this way if you're OK with it.
I'll love living in the future when they'll get rid of the bloody caps lock!
I'm pleased to report that according to Twitter I'm in good company.
@mfeathers Btw. re. internets: are you aware that it's virtually impossible to google (or duckduckgo:-) your blog? Had to go via twitter:-/
Trying out a new way of becoming famous. Have just followed @xkcdrss and will RT every single tweet with a remark like “xkcd is on a roll!”.
Where can I have my following list sorted by follow cost - i.e. tweet frequency? #lazyweb? #anyone? My friend Dunbar wants to know.
@alblue Kudos for fighting the good fight! Shame on me: never had ZFS under my files:-( Perhaps, if one day you'll port it to the iPhone:-)
Merry Christmas everyone!
Dear Santa, if you exist, could you please prove it by answering all #lazyweb questions just for a day?
I must have been good during the year for Santa brought me a Duerer album. Incomprehensibly astonishing purity. Clear runner-up to Velazquez.
In the land where I'll be King, the telly will show The Life of Brian at every christmas.
@polgfred Point taken. You shall be rewarded with some visualized music:
Patterns can be pleasing too.
Pointless data visualizations are pointless. Evidence: Facebook vs. Twitter by the numbers. With loads of wowlessness.
“most of the world loves America, but not US imperialism”: Johan Galtung makes so much sense
- why can't US politics too?
I want the following additional hardware buttons on the next iPhone: cancel, instant spellcheck and (yes…) back. But then I also don't.
I, for one, welcome our new Marxist-Stallmanist comrades. RT @Cisco_Mobile Putin Orders #Russia to Move to #GNU / #Linux
And it's safe to say, this applies outside the US too:-/ RT @tottinge Hmmm. Meritocracy Myth is something to think about.
@raganwald I think it'd go more like “Failing that's why you are”
Dual core - schmual core. Where are my kilocore, megacore, gigacore boxes? And by 'boxes' I mean laptops!
Oh, and by 'boxes' I also meant iPhones:-)
@pl4n3 But then aren't all efficient and feasible solutions to be based on the facts that are statistics?
@pl4n3 Sure, it would be nicer wouldn't there be such an ethnicity/religion based assymetry, but alas, there is.
@pl4n3 I understand and support your stance. Do find it though that for best results, more often than not, wishful thinking is to be avoided
Me too. RT @JohnDCook Jaron Lanier makes me think.
Is anybody not shorting RIM yet?
As if platform shoes weren't a big enough atrocity RT @jkordyback Teva Stiletto Heels should always be paired w/ socks.
@mindist Isn't anger, hatred, aggression beneficial in the survivalist sense of evolution and only a hindrance in the spiritual sense?
Indeed! RT @mindist It is a humble realization, indeed, that even if the universe(s) never existed, mathematics still would. #thought #math
Admits being confused whenever encountering a profile of someone with mathematical background proclaiming political or religious affiliation
Is somewhat irritated by the fact that geek culture appears to embrace, even cultivate, a degree of immaturity.
@mindist Yes, absolutely. I wasn't trying to argue for anger, only explain its rationale. Btw survivalist evolution is certainly not wise:-)
Making me worried: RT @will_sargent New blog post, wherein I talk about why pair programming is not a fit for me:
@will_sargent Thx, you've pretty much reinforced my major concerns. My question: do you think it could work for you in ideal circumstances?
@RonJeffries The real question here is, how far are you willing to tolerate arbitrary restrictions by irritable and violent minorities.
@polgfred Right. Does that mean that I should give up on trying to introduce it for us? I'm already suspicious of several aspects of pairing
I'd buy an iPad 2 straight away if it could get onto the net via the cable. Why is the wireless being forced, it's not a phone after all?
