Via +Daniel Stone​. Gonna have to try this on one of my projects.
 
"People who think their test suite is a good substitute for documentation are wrong."
Epistemic status: Still thinking this through. This is a collection of thoughts, not an advocacy piece. I've previously been pretty against TDD. It is possible that this has always been based on a straw understanding of what TDD is supposed to be for, but if so that is a straw understanding ...

"The goal is to sketch out a whole bunch of example uses of your API." That. So many people seem to obsess over coverage; reimplementing their code in the form of tests rather than exercising the code they have.

Photos from Savannah, only slightly edited down from the full set. Yes, my hoarder streak is in full force :)

Not only should we not judge a book by its cover, but we should get used to expecting great things in girly covers.

Strata is a game for Android. It's an insane brain bender, but that's what makes it great. Beautiful design, too. Try it out, see if you like it.

Just about completely fed up with Planetary Annihilation, because I can't tell if I'm dealing with a bug, or I just can't figure out how to load units onto the Astraeus. Interplanetary war is basically off-limits to me, which means that in any battle involving multiple planets, I literally cannot win.

Fuck this. I'm gonna finally figure out how to build an orbital fabricator, and send all my units via teleport.

Nobody mixes number indexing and letter indexing quite like the W2 form. And that's not even the form I have to fill out.

I just want to fund my local fire department, schools, etc. There's got to be an easier way!

This is awesome. I like the real story better than the fictional one.
 
The more you know;
A surprising amount of the Lone Ranger legend is real but one major fact was literally white washed.

I feel like the visuals would make a nice music video for... something. Not sure what. But most songs in the last couple decades are about the right length.

+Emily Horger You should follow +Debbie Ohi , she does illustrations for children's books and may have some insight for how people can get into the industry.

Amazing. Some days you think we've moved on entirely to subtle racism, but nope, there's still holdouts in the "overt cartoon villain" department.

I hope he gets a lot of calls about BattleToads.

Story
Tagline
I like pretzels, but not more than any other food.
Introduction
I'm a musician/programmer, I don't have nearly the free time I wish I did, and I'm currently coding ConcurrenTree with occasional work on Park, and trying to get through College despite my self-destructively lazy tendencies so I can get a job.
Bragging rights
Once set a napkin on fire with my mind. It was pretty easy, I just used my mind to tell my hand to hold the napkin over the open flame of a candle, and then all of a sudden it just started burning. It was pretty awesome until I dropped it on the floor in panic.

Used to go to this park from my school all the time. Bathrooms weren't that great, but the park itself was, and maybe the bathrooms have improved since then? Lots of good memories there, great place to practice football.
