Quite a few people have joined this group, but not too many have posted anything yet. Let's break the ice by talking about what we do :)

I'm a node.js developer working for a company that provides solar power here in the state of Utah. I have a large background in ASP.NET but switched over to node.js in the last couple years.

I am continually surprised as a developer who lives and works in Utah, at how many people I've met that are super logical in their profession, but not so much when it comes to god and the idea of an afterlife. I naively assumed that my industry would be filled with people who value logic at a deep level; over the years I've been proven very wrong.

What do you guys specialize in? Are you as passionate about code as I am? Do you see a relationship between your atheism and your passion for writing code, or do those just happen to be two unique traits about you that are unrelated?

If you're in a position to be open about it without any consequences then it's awesome. Historically I've always been that way but after that experience I've learned to be a little more reserved about my personal life in general when I'm at work.

He has a MacBook Pro. I'd say he's doing fine ;)

It appears that +SourceForge took over the control of the 'GIMP for Windows' account and is now distributing an ads-enabled installer of GIMP. They also locked out original owner of the account, Jernej Simončič, who has been building the Windows versions of GIMP for our project for years.

So far they haven't replied to provide explanations. Therefore, we remind you again that GIMP only provides builds for WIndows via its official Downloads page.
Source for version 2.8 (Stable). GIMP releases available from gimp.org and its mirrors contain the source code and have to be compiled in order to be installed on your system. For instructions, how to build GIMP from source code, please see this page.

Calling all Utah Hearthstone players! We are having an official Blizzard-sanctioned Fireside Gathering tonight in South Jordan (south salt lake valley). Come sign up and play! New to the game? Don't worry, lots of people are coming just to hang out rather than compete. Come chat, make new friends, and learn how to play :D
