Whoever coined “Global Warming” must be having second thoughts. When afraid of ending up with some freaky weather, name it “Freaky Weather”.

Btw. just played a bit with the font selection of Twittelator. What are those crappy, unusable fonts doing on my iPhone? Who put them there?
2011.01.09 21:42:04
Also, it beats me just why any other fonts but Helvetica are on the iPhone. I tried pretty much all of them and none are nearly as readable.

Not having done it, I'm mentally projecting the ways pair programming may and may not work. Getting more images of the 'not' kind. E.g.: …
2011.01.10 18:23:47
“Pair programming is a balancing act between managing code and managing the pair that you’re working with.” http://... Sounds bad.
2011.01.10 18:24:51
“Logic cannot formulate in quite the same way that it does in one, totally focussed brain.” http://... Sounds worse.
2011.01.10 18:26:48
“When I was at the keyboard, I got dumber.” http://... Sounds even worse, because I know it from experience, I'd end up like that.
2011.01.10 18:29:06
Then there's the limited mentoring potential (something I was hoping for), the people factor (something I was afraid of) and the noise.
2011.01.10 18:30:21
Pair programming - my considered gut feeling : 0 - 1.
2011.01.10 21:20:50
@marick Don't get me wrong, I'm willing to try it – am just trying to figure out, how to start with the least chance of things going awry.
2011.01.10 21:25:34
@marick Please read on, I'll try to summarise some of my (perhaps peculiar) concerns…
2011.01.10 21:28:34
PairProg: I'm afraid of losing the space for free roaming ideas, brief or (if time permits) longer researches and meandering experiments.
2011.01.10 21:31:32
PairProg: I'm wary of a potential short-sighted focus on narrow-minded productivity without the view to the integrity of the whole product.
2011.01.10 21:33:26
PairProg: I'd hate living in the straightjacket of full alignment of personal time patterns (which just like sleep come with tides and lows)
2011.01.10 21:35:50
PairProg: I may be peculiar but I find it good like that – and have learned to be more worried of conformists, i.e. those not peculiar.
2011.01.10 21:44:34

@haruki_zaemon Good on you. I'm hoping for the same for myself. Still feel that the outcome depends on the personalities involved though.

@haruki_zaemon Sorry, oversaw your first sentence. Personal it is:-)
2011.01.10 22:18:17

@marick Thanxalot for all the advices, will keep them in mind. Btw. is it OK to start with half day sessions only, to allow post-processing?
2011.01.10 23:13:22
Courtesy of recommendations by kind softwareists, the current score is: Pair programming - my considered and adjusted gut feeling : 1 - 1.
2011.01.10 23:18:01
I'll be coding again soon: good. In a Java project: ahem. I'll get to run a TDD workshop: good. With not much time to prepare: ahem. (2 - 2)

And the total cost grows exponentially! RT @projectileboy: Every layer of abstraction, every level of indirection, has a value, and a cost.
2011.01.25 21:22:03
I wonder where “Report Spam” lands in Twitter. Hopefully not in /dev/null.
2011.01.25 23:40:49
And I guess I'm the only one in the Universe who has a problem with Ruby's FILE being relative path at times. Thanks for the great docs.
2011.01.25 23:48:00
Is it that people write buggy code or that they're be ashamed of the ugliness of File.absolute_path(File.dirname(FILE))?
2011.01.26 01:35:49
I refuse to add that fugliness to my Ruby files - I'll rather mess with RUBYLIB instead. Seriously: is Ruby enterprise ready?
2011.01.26 01:38:20
Oh, and forgot to mention: couldn't get any of the Eclipse based Ruby environments running on the locked down corporate boxes we to live on.
2011.01.26 01:41:27
But it's not all doom: I prepared a quite decent vim-like setup with a handmade test wrapper watchdog - in batch! Time to get some sleep…
2011.01.26 08:44:47
I'm as meta as it gets.
2011.01.26 14:23:25
Usability fail: a context menu that pretty soon won't fit any more vertically on the screen. Solution by experts: make it wrap or scroll:-(
2011.01.26 18:53:52
Rearranging the Roman Numerals kata so that it avoids the huge logic explosion (10% to 90% in completeness) isn't easy. But I shall prevail.
2011.01.26 23:02:35
Your clever quote of someone else is not clever.
2011.01.27 00:33:42
Managed to flatten the complexity growth of the Roman Numerals kata to 10% - 50% - 90%. Not quite perfect, but way better. Want to know how?
2011.01.27 13:18:19
I take much delight in supporting the local economy of Bunnahabhain.
2011.01.27 14:49:36
No kudos for Matz on consistency of names though: see each_line vs swapcase in String. Makes it harder to come up with a good naming scheme.
2011.01.27 21:38:51
@polgfred I don't know sh*t about them but would say that @unfolding singlehandedly makes it worth staying on tumblr:-)
2011.01.27 21:41:15
My recipe for avoiding keeping all my eggs in one basket is a concerted effort to establish myself as an educator. Wow, that sounds bollocks
2011.01.27 21:49:45
I'll open a software repository and only allow stuff in that's got real usability and graceful ways of failing in adversity. It'll be empty.
2011.01.27 22:00:24
I'm dreaming of Scuttle delivering the features has. No, I don't contribute, so I won't complain. But one can dream…
2011.01.27 22:06:50
I don't want to say anything bad about Eclipse but it often makes me long for vim. Because to Emacs I won't go back. I guess I'm kinda stuck.
2011.01.28 06:26:32
@jamesladd Really? I may give it another try then. Did play with it once and found it not really intuitive. But then probably I'm strange:-)
2011.01.28 06:28:23
For all the talk about delivering solutions, I sometimes feel we just love beautiful code. At least I do.
2011.01.28 09:29:48
Dear software, your unrelenting lack of intelligible error messages troubles and disheartens me.
2011.01.28 13:19:07
Anyone tweeting 'woot' is running the risk of an unfollow. (And don't get all smartypants on me: I can't unfollow myself.)
2011.01.28 22:15:43
And the libraries. And the directory I've just been in. And… RT @Arlen No. *You're* the computer, *You* tell *me* where the class file is.
2011.01.28 22:50:24
About to buy RubyMine to support the good cause of an independent software shop creating tools of value. And you know, I could work there;-)
2011.01.28 22:52:18
I do have some problem with freetardism. People should put their money where their mouth is. In particular in software.
2011.01.29 01:41:01
It's not that it's bad that Davos is going to have an influence on the world. It's just that there's nothing good we can expect from it.
2011.01.29 13:07:25
I was told I'm a catalyst. And that in a good sense! I'll take the opportunity and go to a Kruder & Dorfmeister gig tonight.
2011.01.29 20:46:34
And I still have a crate of LPs I should somehow rip.
2011.01.29 22:00:41
@davetron5000 I find Sennheisers have correct and comfortable sound, not the clearest and definitely not exciting. Perfect work headphones:)
2011.01.30 15:59:16
A business idea for free: a museum for families, with knobs and buttons that flash lights when tweaked or pressed. No other exhibits needed.
2011.01.31 08:26:03
Being a nonconformist with an eye for aesthetics does have its advantages when creating presentations. Lasting imprints elude bullet points.
2011.01.31 08:29:15
And as usual, I'm impressed with how expressive the results of my roman converter kata are in Ruby. I wouldn't even want to try it in Java.
2011.01.31 14:34:58
The biggest lie in Spring DI samples? Code and config being neatly listed below each other. Instead of both being hidden in a maze of files!
2011.01.31 14:36:55
The degree of cheating and the hidden damage of the dismemberment is enough for me to revoke the justfication of Spring DI. Hah. Like I can.
2011.01.31 15:04:52
Putting something in XML is an outstanding method of obfuscating it.
2011.01.31 15:19:01
Some (if not all) tech book authors must be getting paid based on the number of pages. I'll buy everything if someone starts Concise Books!
2011.01.31 18:09:30
Mumford & Sons FTW!
2011.01.31 21:08:16
My God, I've just realised that I wasn't yet following @apod - the site the internet's been invented for! Good to track the old buddy again.
2011.01.31 21:21:10
It's not hard for me to choose between the burgeoning overcompexity of Java and the pioneering flakiness of Ruby. Avant-garde FTW!
