Ever wonder what music do the reviewers consider their favorite?
Are you trying to decide between high-resolution downloads and LP reissues? In the market for a hi-rez portable audio player? A zealot bravely fighting back in the Loudness Wars? Change is inevitable, and in the audiophile world it's the spice that keeps things interesting—there's always a new ...

I guess you can think of me as an agnostic atheist, not only do I not believe in a creator, I don't even know which one I don't believe in.
Introduction
A multithreaded program with extensive global mutable state is one of the best demonstrations of the Heisenberg uncertainty principle I know of.

As Antoine-Marie Roger de Saint-Exupery said, La perfection est atteinte non quand il ne reste rien à ajouter, mais quand il ne reste rien à enlever. (English translation: You know you’ve achieved perfection in design, not when you have nothing more to add, but when you have nothing more to take away.)

There are 10 types of people in the world today. Those that understand binary number systems and those that do not.
