We finally looked into the mystery.
It's a picture that's captured the world's attention. So we found out what it means.

Happy Birthday ... in about 21 days? Or is there a floor or ceiling operator missing from the original expression?

Some good info on here -- but I feel like you could get the same review content into about 3-4 minutes instead of 16, and I'd be a lot more likely to watch that!

Food for thought, if nothing other than why software estimates suck.

Eloquent words from John Hodgman.
 
Basically, this.

The part of the left that has abandoned actual policy in favor of enforcing increasingly baroque standards of etiquette? That's slightly annoying, I guess, although I never think about it unless prompted. But it's just annoying. 

On the other side of the ledger, when a statistically disproportionate number of small impositions affect other people's lives, the aggregate burden is much more than annoying -- even if any one imposition is no more than annoying. Being conscientious of your total misery footprint necessarily involves making sure that you're not adding your own grain of sand to the landslide, and there's no crime in occasionally reminding others of that fact.
The comedian was responding to an article in New York magazine by Jonathan Chait.

Story
Tagline
Edmonton-based nerd; developer for EMC's integrated VPLEX/RecoverPoint/MetroPoint high-availability storage and disaster recovery solution (it's pretty cool, ask about it!)
Introduction

My name is Jeremy Nickurak.  Some time ago I completed my M.Sc in Computing Science at the University of Alberta, where was working with Paul Lu's Trellis High-performance and meta computing research group. My chief areas of research interest are filesystem and resource access in a distributed/cluster context, especially where involving virtualization.

Since then, I've been working as a software developer on EMC's Vplex high-availability storage solution.

My resume is available, and I'll give proper consideration to anyone with a suggestion.

If you're interested in getting in touch with me, you can email me at my-first-name@my-last-name.ca (slightly obfuscated to prevent spam bots from seeing it). You can also reach me at the same address on Jabber/XMPP/GoogleChat
