@jrecursive Exactly. Every middle/high school math teacher should read it.@jrecursive Highly recommend the book, too.Rob Zombie’s “Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor” is the perfect soundtrack for today.

“We’re planning the event unconference style. Vote for ideas with post-its on the whiteboard.” “What about remote employees?” “Oh.”@obfuscurity @aaronblew I lurk there and on diyma from time to time.@base10 It’s true. As grandpa said, just because someone jumped off a bridge doesn’t mean you have to.Move fast, break shit, and OH GOD THE AWFUL TECH DEBT. JESUS WEPT.@jtimberman Your code is bad and you should feel bad.@obfuscurity Come on in! The water is great! I haven’t played w/DIY audio since late 90’s before my newest car.@obfuscurity PPI P1000.1 — 725w @ 2ohm@obfuscurity I shall. Hoping 2 15s w/big ass magnets, sealed and Dynamat-ed trunk, and 700w will get me there.@obfuscurity For my Challenger. Infinite baffle behind rear fold-down seats.@FrancescoC @stevevinoski Flounder?@obfuscurity I’m excited to get them installed. I’ve been an audio/music nut for a while and dreamed of having this kind of low end :)Just received my Fi Audio 15” subs. These things are beyoootiful.

Welp. It’s gon’ be a table flipping kind of day.@mattray In this case it’s the difference between a reasonably good day and needing legal representation.This day is either going to get awesome or enter truly epic realms of table flipping.“@yrashk: I'm wondering why so many companies that are selling decentralization are centralized, hierarchical structures themselves?” THIS.

@Simergence Heh :) Browsing pg db dump@mzyk83 @lusis Perfect. Summers should be somewhere nice…..Snowbird UT perhaps?M-x goto-line 2000000@lusis @mzyk83 FL or AZ seem ideal.@lusis @mzyk83 Whoa buddy. Walk before we run. Geritol for our seed, Centrum Silver for A, and AARP for our breakout B round.@mzyk83 @lusis Gotta play the game though. I suggest pitching iDepends as a product when we go for funding. Should be ‘age-appropriate’ ;-)@lusis I’d like to join and run the intern program ;-)@mzyk83 +1. Success is rarely found doing what everyone else is doing.@lusis How long before VCs start hiring “Adults In Residence” ? Love computers & software but beginning to loathe the ‘industry’.@jkeiser2 @lusis @mzyk83 Exactly. There’s a huge difference between working harder vs. smarter, imo.FML. Liking the SV less and less. Sad, really. http://t.co/OG98taYrqO

@OliverFerrigni Also: http://t.co/NuCTIcWYZz@OliverFerrigni Not necessarily. Seems like it’d require adherence to modularity principals by spec authors.@OliverFerrigni Specs as aspects?@OliverFerrigni Seems like composability for end-to-end testing could get hairy.@gjohnson391 @michaelklishin @lusis Where “OS” == “userspace”@lusis @michaelklishin Single thread of control is enough for anyone.@lusis I can’t fucking even.@michaelklishin @lusis But Hey! No locking problems amirite?@michaelklishin @lusis Trying to imagine what a kernel would look like written with all those callbacks. *shudder*@lusis ELL OH ELL@lusis Perfect. I’ll get started on Swiftibbonaci this weekend.@lusis Does it compile to node?Time to write a PaaS in Rust. /cc @lusis #boilingoceans@jtimberman Rub some large primes on it. You’ll be fiiiiiiine@lusis @bdha I suggest we name it “Scotch O’Clock Records”@lusis @bdha We should have that discussion f2f so we can avoid distributed agreement ;-)@bdha @lusis Let’s do eet.@lusis I know that feeling all too well lately.
