Steam must be the only platform where one can buy a game and end up  4 cents richer.

I absolutely love the performance and integration of the WebView component of JavaFX. I might be able to save myself a lot of time on implementing a fully functional markdown/latex editor and a diagram editor in JavaFX.

Seriously? According to the FBI, Sony got hacked by sloppy North Korean hackers... So that means Sony actually got hacked by sloppy hackers... Imagine how sloppy Sony's security is then...

Finally decided to give Grails a go, and so far so good. I love how easy and intuitive everything is.


Absolutely great for small to medium applications.

Never blame your tools, unless you want people to think you know what you are doing, then, always blame your tools.

I have no clue why, but those typical NA commercials crack me up! I'm sitting here laughing at a Capital Auto Mall commercial...

Is that seriously an Amazon icon I see in Ubuntu. I'm glad I moved away from Ubuntu quite a while ago.

Sometimes I wonder if I am the only programmar that is not bothered by checked exceptions. Quite frankly, I rather like them.

It must be that I'm more an engineer than I am a designer. But I think it's just weak they are whining about each other copying their uniquely designed black rectangles. Get over it, they're rectangles. #apple #xiaomi #euclid

I really have to print a shirt explaining that "Java is not by definition slower than C++" supported by a nice benchmark on the back.

Story
Tagline
I love programming. I have an opinion about everything and I love to share my thoughts.
Introduction
Hi, I'm Mike! I'm that typical guy that gets up every weekend only to boot into linux and start hacking away on one of his too many projects. That guy that likes to debate about atheism, freedom, equality and "Which is better, Android or iPhone", stuff that matters.

Well that's pretty much me, right there. But unlike that guy, I also like to read, write, fiddle around in Inkscape, fiddle around with the guitar and watch anime. I also got a fiddle, but I'm not using it...
Bragging rights
I almost exclusively use Linux, Eclipse, Gimp, Inkscape and all that other OSS goodness!
