I don't know why I just changed my wallpaper. I don't remember the last time I saw my desktop. #TooManyBrowserWindows

To be clear, my interest in Smalltalk is not b/c I want to write Smalltalk code for a living. But many hold it up as the "real" way to do OO (as opposed to the C++ and Java approach), so it might be interesting to try it out for comparison.

Glad to see the Federal Circuit finally following the Supreme Court's guidance on software patents.
Chief Judge Sharon Prost signaled that patents framed as means-plus-function claims must disclose an algorithm.

And yet Java's SSL stack is still a pain in the ass to configure, he said after spending too much time this afternoon debugging a HostnameVerifier problem....
SMACK: State Machine AttaCKs. Implementations of the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol must handle a variety of protocol versions and extensions, authentication modes and key exchange methods, where each combination may prescribe a different message sequence between the client and the ...

TypeError: "undefined' is not an object

Ugh, weakly types interpreted languages.

Maybe I'm just not a good programmer. But I spent most of the afternoon trying to fix a problem with some JavaScript that would have taken seconds to diagnose if it had a strong type system and a compiler. Rather than printing an error that I'm passing the wrong type, I instead get a useless message that undefined is not an object.

I honestly don't understand how people say this is a good language for rapid prototyping. Give me a strong type system and a compiler any day.

That moment when you start to understand phrases like "What’s different about Validation is that it is not a monad, but it’s an applicative functor."

Very limit vegetarian selections. Service is quick, though. Overall, there are better restaurants in the area.
