VxWorks is evil!!!!!! Linksys routers had it on them for a while (ddwrts) and it was a pain in the ass, they constantly crashed, and were a slight bit of a pain to reflash (i've done two)

Hands down one of his best episodes. This guy really did learn a lot over his first year on the show. Makes me laugh much more than Larry Wilmore on the Nightly Show has so far.

I can't even make this shit up. Saw this exchange on Facebook. Sadly one of the hateful comments was an acquaintance (from that terrible place called "real life") of mine...

My issue is more with being publicly hateful like shown above than with anyone's views on suicide (because we all have them, and they all differ).

The first IndieGoGo I've actually contributed to: a worthwhile cause from +Humans of New York (this story has been going for about a week now, and I'd recommend reading all of it as the context is great). Great to see them blow right through their original $100k goal.
We're going to send kids to Harvard! Well, not exactly. But we are going to send the students of Mott Hall Bridges Academy to visit Harvard. 'What's the big deal?' you ask. Thanks for asking. Sometimes a visit to Harvard is more than just a visit to Harvard. Mott Hall Bridges Academy is a midd

Yet another thing that pisses me off about enterprise software: give me reasonable error messages please.

At robotics we use MicroStrategy as a tool to prototype various visualizations before going at them with the far more time-intensive D3 in the browser. Tried for days to get the damn thing to access a particular PostgreSQL view in our DB. We'd get "Cannot access property 'n' of undefined" every time, with no context whatsoever. Nothing in the knowledge base about it. No hint of anything except for bashing our heads against the wall. Meanwhile, another table worked just fine.

Turns out, Microstrategy Express for Web cannot handle the INTERVAL column type in PostgreSQL 9.x.

Solution: "EXTRACT EPOCH FROM AGE(...)" (which will return a FLOAT or something similar) in the view. The view now loads perfectly in Microstrategy.

You know those code files you write that are just so well-written and smartly-implemented that you just smile? I'm ending my workweek (given I'm out Thursday and Friday for +FRC Teams) by finishing up one of those. The only thing that would make me happier about this is some kind of PhantomJS testing on this Angular scope.

Today I learned: when "for" looping in CoffeeScript and firing asynchronous events within said loop, do a "do (obj) ->" block. Seriously. You'll get some funkadelic results otherwise.

Normally you'd never hear me say this, but... I think I'm ready for at least spring weather to return. Maybe not summer, because that gets awfully muggy around here (and anywhere east of the Mississippi), but I could do with daytime temps getting back into the lower 70s for a while...
