Putting this monster on the smoker now. Beer bottle for size comparison. This is the biggest pork butt I have ever put on the smokey mountain.

Wow, 20 years of Qt. I remember back in 1999 when I started getting interested in KDE, Qt was a revelation to me. It led the pack when it came to capabilities, docs, and community, and Qt has kept the momentum going. Today it is a tremendously powerful and flexible toolset for building cross-platform apps, and as anyone who read my recent column on opensource.com will know, I believe the cross-platform piece is essential - http://blog.qt.io/blog/2015/05/20/happy-20th-anniversary-qt/ - congrats, Lars, and team!

One useful benefit of working while stood up (when alone) is being able to amusingly shake it to extremely heavy death metal. Satisfying.

But you do lose the ability to roll around in a chair going 'exterminate'... Life has such difficult tradeoffs.

Also experimenting with standing desks. Until I get one, I am stood in our bathroom (tall surface) with my laptop on a suitcase. MacGyver.

Great. Just remember to stand the right way, otherwise you spine is going to be demaged as well. This is the hardest part for me.
But it's far healthier than sitting anyways.
