Another slashdot pearl (try to read this out loud):
-------------------------------------------------------------------
"Either" goes with "or" and "neither" goes with "nor", though neither "or" nor "nor" need either "either" nor "neither" (respectively) in all cases, and neither do either "nor" nor "or" ever pair directly with "and" as you had them, though either "and either" or "and neither" can introduce an "or" or "nor" clause (respectively) into a larger "and" clause just fine.

It's out of context... it's about language not about coding :)

Senna was my hero while growing up in Romania... I started to watch Formula 1 at the same time he started to drive in F1, I stopped following F1 when he died.

I guess this is why I still follow slashdot... 
----------------------------------------------------------
A long long time ago,
I can still remember how that NT kernel made me smile.
And I knew that if I had my chance,
I'd write a helluva lot cool VB 6 apps.
And maybe my manager would be happy for a while.
But April made me shiver,
With each Win 8 PC I'd deliver.
Bad news in the staffroom steps.
And I couldn't take one more step.
I can't remember if I cried,
When I read about some XP user heaved a sigh.
But something touched me deep inside.
The day Windows XP died.
So bye bye Windows XP has died.
Rode my Segway to the to the levy,
But the levy was dry.
And good ol' sysadmins were drinking coffee and Sprite,
Singing "This is the day Windows XP has died,
This is the day Windows XP has died."

A friend of mine shared this letter from her sister-in-law. Please help if you can, every bit counts.

"As many of you know already, and for those that don't, a year and a half ago Adam (my husband) suffered severe permanent brain damage from PML (progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy) as a rare side effect of a medication he was taking to manage his Crohn's disease.

We've both been through a lot since March of 2011, and there's a long, complicated road ahead of us. However, one of the major roadblocks that we haven't been able to overcome is something that our friends and family may be able to help us out with. Adam was in grad school for so long, he does not have enough work credits to qualify for Social Security Disability, though he's plenty disabled enough. The only way for him to qualify (trust me on this... I've tried everything), is for him to work to earn enough income to give him the credits he needs to qualify. This is a difficult thing to do because of all of the limitations (aphasia, inability to read, impaired vision and hemiparesis to name a few) with which the PML has left him.

However, he's recently started drawing pictures with colored pencils at home.
So... long story short, we're starting up a small business for him through etsy.com and zazzle.com selling prints and greeting cards, etc. online so that he can earn self-employment income. We're getting close to being able to share the links to his stores on these two websites - hopefully in about a week or two - so keep an eye out as I'll be posting them here.

If you feel that you are able to, please consider supporting Adam in our effort to get him the benefits he requires. Thank you!"

Today she posted the link to Adam's paintings:
