Some good news at last. The police union said it "will have a chilling effect on police officers across the city". Well and good, since 20 years of impunity have made them a menace to the public.
A rookie police officer pleaded not guilty Wednesday to manslaughter, official misconduct and other charges in the shooting death of a man in a pitch black stairwell of a Brooklyn public housing complex.

One of my cats seems to have died. My guess is that it was dehydration when she couldn't get down from the top of the Cat Metropolis. We'll know for sure when we get the report from the Kitty Pathologist.

I just watched the trailers for The Force Awakens for the first time, long after seeing the film. I was right not to watch them before. They would have ruined some entertaining reveals and important plot points. Never watch the trailers.

+Anton Sweeney Ah, 'Calvary' - a movie that belongs, along with 'Chasing Amy' and 'Juno', in the category of 'Nobody Talks To People Like This'.

For a year I worked at serve.void.slap, before which I had several years at pretty.region.vaccine after 6 months at harp.microwaves.storage.

I really wish I could do my whole resume like this.

One group of approaching Pegida supporters was chased back down Talbot Street by a splinter group, some wearing masks and chanting, “Fascist scum, off our streets.”

Uh. Someone get that guy a dictionary. Or possibly a history book.

I'm no fan of Pegida (they're one of the misguided anti-Islam groups agitating for an end to freedom of religion, because they haven't thought it through). But there's a special mixture of pity and disgust that I feel when reading about fascist-style repression of fascist-style ideology.
Violent clashes broke out in Dublin city centre today where an estimated 1,000 demonstrators turned out on O’Connell Street to protest the launch of the anti-Islam group Pegida in Irela

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.
