Funny and clever! I find it interesting how this can be sarcastic without being obnoxious. That's a pretty hard balance to hit.
“Python or Ruby” is the one of the most hotly debated topics in the programming world, ranking just behind “emacs or vim” and “pro-skub or…

Quite interesting! I didn't expect such in-depth linguistic explanations :)

Yeah, I've always been puzzled by the "hwat" pronounciation as opposed to "what" (I'm not even talking about "wat" -- the old way actually seems to place the "h" before the "w", for some reason...)

Rap News is finally back with another episode! And a timely one at that, covering the madness that the 2016 US election has been so far. Sick beat and rhymes, too!

Very interesting overview. Hopefully over time more countries will mandate open source software for government projects, rather than just encourage it.
As the institutional use of open-source software continues to expand like an octopus, the public sector remains a key target market. Here’s a map to help you visualize just how prevalent Linux and open source have become across governments.

Oh my, so many goodies! It's astounding how quickly +GitLab keeps putting out all these great features release upon release. Github is really gonna have to step up their game if they want to remain attractive to devs.
Code, test & deploy with GitLab. Everyone can contribute!

Fun, but even more interestingly, thought-provoking. It reminded me quite a bit of Adam Conover's "I Dare You To Watch This Entire Video" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Edx9D2yaOGs), curiously also from College Humor.

I wasn't able to figure out the difference/relationship between aspell and hunspell from the Wikipedia pages. This post provided a good overview, albeit somewhat biased towards aspell.
Aspell not dead, in this post I will outline how I see Aspell moving forward. Please circulate this post as you see fit, but keep in mind that I still consider this document a draft so expect the occasional spelling (yes even a spell checker doesn't catch everything) and grammar mistakes as ...

Quite reminiscent of stroke-based fonts (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_font#Stroke-based_fonts) and Knuth's Metafont. I'll definitely do some research on this. Sounds quite promising!

Pretty spot-on analysis. Realizing that our system is flawed and that we play a part in keeping it in place for our own psychological well-being can be traumatic, but truer experiences await us on the other side.

It's on par with most mall cinemas around here. No complaints, but nothing strikingly remarkable about it either.

I dined at this restaurant as part of a group of 6 people, and all of us enjoyed the experience greatly. The dishes have excellent quality and come in generous portions. It seemed to be a slow night, so we had the pleasure of being attended by the manager himself, who was very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended, especially for those wanting to try the typical Portuguese codfish dishes, of which they have a large variety.

The location and view are excellent, but at least on the few times I went there, the service was somewhat slow, the music was too loud, and the nicest area was also the smoking area, which is rather inconvenient. Not to mention the prices being higher than average. It's a nice place to get to know if you haven't yet, but not one I'd recommend enthusiastically.
