"XML is like violence — if it doesn’t solve your problems, you are not using enough of it"  (http://nokogiri.org/)


Finding inconsistencies in documentation is one thing. Finding four versions of XML abuse in the beginning of a document is quite another. Having none of the referred DTD online is apparently well-established practice.

I weep for you, fellow programmers.

XML is crap. Really. There are no excuses. XML is nasty to parse for humans, and it's a disaster to parse even for computers. There's just no reason for that horrible crap to exist. --Linus Torvalds

+Watch Dogs is out, +Ubisoft is down. How surprising. Yes, it means you can't even play things from +Steam , like +Far Cry 3 . Happy, happy evening.

A nice overview about what's wrong with current password policies and how to improve the situation.
I have already been ranting about passwords several times. They might be there to protect your digital assets but are also a liability. There are a lot of articles about user passwords being easily guessable. Usually they bla...

Watch the speech.

Ignore the comments (it is a pity that I almost didn't write this advice, because it has become habitual to ignore all comments on similar topics).

The message is strong, even more so that it touches topics bordering perceived 'feminism' as so many (mis-)understand it.

I myself hope every day that I am part of the inadvertent feminists that try to be part of the solution, of the future.
 
Absolutely wonderful speech, and I agree wholeheartedly. Let's all band together for Gender Equality!

Einblicke in einen Unrechtsstaat – Amerika hat als Vorbild komplett abgewirtschaftet und unsere Politik ist leider auf dem selben fatalen Irrweg. 
Das Irrwitzige an der Geschichte ist, dass diejenigen, die als großes Ablenkungsmanöver von der NSA-Affäre nun die Zerschlagung von Google postulieren, mit ihrer Netzpolitik jede mögliche Konkurrenz schon im Keim ersticken:
Wer als Firma heute nicht schon eine gewisse Mindestgröße erreicht hat, kann in diesem von ständig wachsenden Eingriffen der Staatsmacht geprägten Umfeld das wirtschaftliche Risiko kaum mehr tragen. So sind immer mehr Startups zum Scheitern verurteilt oder werden sehr schnell von den Großen der Branche einverleibt und verschwinden so ebenfalls vom Markt.

Been there with our brunch crowd, and we are all of the same opinion: best brunch place in Vienna. Only one small handicap ahead: tables in the non-smoker area are for maximum six people, so if you have a bigger crowd, it might put a slight crimp into the Saturday morning fun. Else: really, really great buffet, huge selection and for that dead cheap. As someone else said, the service could be slightly better, sometimes orders get lost, but all in all we were treated very well. I have to mention the buffet again: entries/breakfast items sit next to soups and full blown meat and vegetarian dishes, and just around there corner there's the sweet stuff. And everything is of best quality. I'd have a hard time recommending it for other times, because I have rarely been there - it's not my type of restaurant -, but for brunch it's the best around for me.

Oh my. This is my favourite Tex-Mex place, hands down. The food is just great. Pickings are there for omnivores, vegetarians, even vegans. And they are far from slim. The food is really tasty - just remember, when it says 'hot' on the cover, they mean it (especially for the average Austrian). There's not a lot of space to sit, but for take away it is one of the best places in Vienna, hands down. So, if you ask me if I would recommend that place: every single time. For every single evening in the week. I just love it.

Again, hungry on a Sunday afternoon, walking around the 6th district - and in the end we went to a place I have been a few times and never ceased to amaze me. According to widely-travelled friends this is one of the few genuine Shanghai restaurants they know outside of Shanghai, and it has a lot of things to offer. Not the least being a very friendly and helpful staff, and the Special Menu offer is amazing. Two entries and a main dish for as little as € 11.90? And the selection satisfies Omnivores, Vegetarians and Vegans alike. I really like to come here and taste different combinations - all time favourites being the Calamari (hot!) and the Cucumber-Garlic salad (greatest ever!). Another huge advantage are the lazy-sunday-afternoon-friendly opening hours. And even at the oddest hours, the staff is friendly and fast, the food gets served fresh and quickly. I love the place, it's definitely a must-go whenever you crave the genuine Shanghai kitchen experience.

I ordered for delivery here before, and wanted to take a closer look. Pity that it's a bit hidden, because there were fewer people than this diner deserves. And for it being a diner: don't think standard American Diner, it's much more classy. The waiters are nice, if a bit quiet, and not as close to being obnoxious as in other American style restaurants. The burgers are great, fresh and made to order, rarely had better. The interior is a bit dark, more lighting wouldn't hurt. But having Ben and Jerries more than made up for it. I'll be back, testing the sandwiches, and maybe even the pan pizza (which I usually don't have, but it too looked great!).

Well, there's one word for the oldest brunch location in Vienna: Dreadful. Not only "losing" the reservation (as in taking one while being overbooked already, and then knowing nothing about it), but the seating option was in the middle of the aisle, just next to the entrance. In winter, they sport those heavy felt curtains - which are too long and won't swing closed by themselves. Too bad for anyone being placed at the worst table they could come up with. Granted, the girl serving in this room was really trying, but was also vapid and forgot orders over and again. Being nice is good, being competent would have been better. Also, promising Prosecco as consolation and repair was a nice idea - actually bringing it without us having to ask five times for it would have been going a long way to making up for all the mistakes. Which goes a lot more about the rest of the personnel. They were unfriendly and overlooked such "details" as having empty serving plates on the buffet for more than 20 minutes three hours before the brunch buffet would be closed. Asked why, one waitress answered "I can't see them from back here" - she was standing behind the buffet counter. Adding insult to injury was that the food can only be called mediocre with a lot of goodwill. The selection was poor, the waffles cold and tough, the plates mostly empty (see above), and you still had to pay fourteen something euros - most drinks excluded. And the self service fountain suffered a similar problem as the serving plates did. This place should be one of the best places in Vienna for a brunch. I would never recommend it. Overfull, overpriced, and not living up to the promise - seems someone is trying to ride on past glory. But that ride might be a short one. Maybe read some of my other reviews and learn from places that got it down pat, and I might consider visiting again. Then again, maybe not.

One product: Dry Aged Beef. Well, they have more than that one product, but that's a new one I really loved. To be honest: I wasn't there my first time yesterday, but I have been dining there on and off for years. What is really fascinating is that the overall quality never failed to amaze me. I mean, steak places have one big problem: if they are hosting huge tables (Rocky Docky's does) with people who have to have some extras (we do) and people who are pretty picky about how they want their steak to be done (from very rare to medium), it is a challenge to put everything including side dishes on such a table at the same time. But Rocky Docky's crew manages just that. The steaks were perfectly cooked, we were perfectly happy. From all the side dishes I tried, I love the French Beans and the Chili Roast Potatoes most, but it's always hard to decide - and I have been known to take something else, like the baked beans or the corn ... The interior is nice, the western style just brought over the top enough to not being genuine, but not yet cheesy. And for people who think that the price is a bit high: Nah, y'all get yer bang for yar buck, y'hear me?
