In which Meng receives a holy quest.
Near the end of my most recent audience with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, I put my palms together, bowed to him, and solemnly asked, "Your Holiness, what is the most important thing I can do for you and the Tibetan people?" He replied with a huge smile, "When you meet Chinese people, ...

You just have to shop around for a reader which doesn't have the sticker.
 
Having worked in tech support, that the makers of this OBD code reader discovered that they needed to apply this sticker does not surprise.

Increasingly, I'm reminded of the fact that the same behaviour which is called "ambitious" and "driven" in men is called "self-promoting" and "abrasive" in women; and that these discriminatory attitudes are effective in keeping women out of senior positions.

I'm not on a stump for Clinton. I'm just unhappy with the form of the anti-Clinton rhetoric.

If it survives the first week, there's every chance it will last the full five months until the next election. #irishpolitics

Ireland's age-old political enemies struck a historic deal Friday night to create a fragile new government following an inconclusive election and two months of deadlock.

I must point out that the first guy they stopped on the street, and who didn't know what a Sikh was, was clearly Irish and not American. He was even wearing an IRFU shirt, for feck's sake!

Introduction
I'm a computer scientist (software developer, network engineer, and system administrator).
Professionally, I'm interested in distributed systems, formal methods, quantum computing, security and the process of engineering reliable software.
Personally, I'm interested in aviation, law, ethics, politics, mathematics, psychology, and new learning experiences of almost any kind.

My favourite word is mamihlapinatapai (each expecting the other to do something first). It narrowly edged out rawa-dawa (the sensation of suddenly realising you can do something reprehensible, and no one is there to witness it).


Bragging rights
I have a gold medal with my name inscribed on one side and "FOR SCIENCE" on the other. I estimate that I was the *Youngest Person in the World* for 250 milliseconds. And, of course, I was TIME magazine's Person Of The Year 2006 and a winner of the Nobel Peace Prize 2012. I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

I wish I lived in Miami so I could make this place my regular gym! I visited from overseas because I'd heard good things about the trainer Lazaro, and he lived up to that reputation. He gave close attention and improved a lot of little things in my technique that my regular CrossFit trainers had overlooked. I came away from this with better fitness and knowledge.
