Commission proves T management incompetent. "DePaola said officials had been worried the [3rd rail de-icing] fluid could be corrosive to the tracks. What they did not know, until they heard it from New York and Chicago, was that noncorrosive anti-icing fluids have become available in recent years."

Wait, you expect me to believe that you operate a major US Subway and you never heard of de-icing fluid? That no sales reps ever called and pitched these new and improved products, and that you never knew what your peer group subways did to fight winter weather? I hope they're lying, otherwise they're too frighteningly stupid to be operating such a railroad. #MBTAFail  #MBTA

Holy Crap! Psych journal asserts that P testing (Null Value Hypothesis Testing) is invalid and thus authors publishing in the journal shouldn't use it. WTF? Psych papers have often been on shaky ground with N values of say 10 or less, but rather than applying statistics poorly, we'll just abnegate statistical analysis entirely? We might as well get rid of scientific studies entirely and base all decisions on anecdotal observations. #WTF

Glad this issue isn't dead. FBI guns down angry broomstick wielding man? Open and shut case, obviously. Then there is the fact that the FBI prevented the disclosure of the coroner's report claiming national security... right. Must look bad when your robo G man shoots someone 8 times in the back in the middle of a high profile investigation.

FedEx sounds like the kind of company I could work for. What do you do when a cargo fire burns up one of your planes? You do your own independent fire testing and discover the FAA standards suck and that the industry standard cargo container burns through in 60 seconds. That means a destroyed plane and dead crew. What now? You invent a solution to detect fire and inject all containers with a novel fire suppression agent (completely automatically), and then you rapid prototype and deploy the system to your fleet of 121 MD10/11 planes, in a year. Holy crap, that's a company that gives a shit about it's employees and customers. Few corporation could move that fast, let alone in aerospace.

Learned about this system when it activated on Tuesday in flight. http://avherald.com/h?article=4824833b&opt=0

We don't use Git to deploy production code at my office, because I won't let them. I decided to tap out a blog post on it given the 4 consecutive business days BitBucket was down this week. #DevOps

RIP Codehaus. I guess it's progress when free code hosting sites get aped by startups that have bested them and found a way to be profitable while still rendering a superior free service (Github, BitBucket)

Nice diversionary tactic by the #MBTA. Don't run service on a significant portion of the Red Line because you don't actual have the trains to do so as they were built in 1978 and drop like flies, while you blame "weather issues." Then, since each passing train would have plowed accumulating snow from the track, but doesn't since you're not running trains on the Braintree branch, it gets totally buried in drifts. Then, since you're only dedicated diesel locomotive/plow hasn't been in operating condition in years, you have union work gangs, the National Guard, prison work gangs, and even the public digging out the Red Line by hand like it's 1890, ALL WEEK LONG. Now if only we had some oxen propelled plows...  #MBTAFAIL

Finally, a politician that runs her own IT! Sadly, this pretty much confirms to me that the Chinese et al probably hacked her email long ago. #DIY
Setup would have given her extra control over her emails as secretary of state; didn't mention the controversy but cheered prospect of woman president during Tuesday speech

Ah, Boston, I love ya. Best part of the article (which I'm living every day), is the continued assertion that because you spend 2 hours clearing out your spot back on Jan 24th, it is still yours on March 2nd so that you can leave it empty all day and expect to find it still free when you return.. It is not yours. You move your car, you lose it. Want a permanent parking spot? Buy one. They're about $80K, so you might just keep shoveling after all.

BitBucket down for the count 4 consecutive business days last week. Way to fail. Sadly we use it for Hipchat/JIRA integrations. Convenient proof that Git should never be used as a deployment mechanism for times exactly like these. Too bad people look at me like I'm crazy when I say that. My gold standard is CI builds and pushes distributable to S3. Servers then deploy from S3. If all else fails, dev can do local build and push to S3 for deployment without changing server workflow.

Seems #MBTApassengers   at Forest Hills are so frustrated with late trains that they name their hotspots after it. Noticed this one during the 15min wait for the subway train to actually leave this morning.

Add to this at each station the train doors couldn't close because everyone was trying to force themselves on, since there are barely any trains these last 4 weeks. The conductor was yelling on the speaker "Step away from the doors! There are plenty of trains behind us!" The entire car erupted into laughter. There were no trains behind us. I checked the app. Not a one. 

The PA at Forest Hills also told us there were "minor delays." Let's keep living the lie. #MBTAFail

Great spot for lunch after climbing around the beach. Eclectic assortment of healthy fare. Loved the burrito and the tuna salad sandwich (bread was fresh and delicious). Service was quick.
