working with a new hire writing a shell script, via chat.
chat session ends:

me: scripting tip of the day: don't use quotes unless you need to
newhire: how do you know that you need to use quotes?
me: when it doesn't work w/out them
newhire: ah, of course :)

Check out "the bible project" on https://www.youtube.com/user/jointhebibleproject 8 minute videos on each (well most, some still pending) book of the Bible, in a couple hours you can understand the BIG picture of the Bible. What really hit me (from the OT) is that Israel, who were chosen to be separate and be a kingdom of priests, continuously fell into sin, and it was always the same: idol worship, sexual perversion, and child sacrifice; not unlike today's: materialism, LGBT, and abortion. Certainly, we are headed for well deserved Judgement.

Gotcha, just wanted to check; it wouldn't have been the first (or even the second) time a beta tester has gotten somewhere that was intended to be impossible, and I had to fix it. :-)

The editor isn't exactly user-friendly -- I just kind of glommed on new features as I went, and assigned them to whatever keys I hadn't used yet -- but maybe some day it can be cleaned up. I did try to make the game at least semi-moddable; if you make any interesting new levels, I'd love to see them!

I'm 50+ and heard this for the first time last week... apparently, I'm not well read.

Aristotle’s well-known definition of truth (Metaphysics 1011b25): “To say of what is that it is not, or of what is not that it is, is false, while to say of what is that it is, and of what is not that it is not, is true; so that he who says of anything that it is, or that it its not, will say either what is true or what is false."

from: https://www.fbi.gov/news/pressrel/press-releases/statement-by-fbi-director-james-b.-comey-on-the-investigation-of-secretary-hillary-clintons-use-of-a-personal-e-mail-system

How do you go from:

Our investigation looked at whether there is evidence classified information was improperly stored or transmitted on that personal system, in violation of a federal statute making it a felony to mishandle classified information either intentionally or in a grossly negligent way, or a second statute making it a misdemeanor to knowingly remove classified information from appropriate systems or storage facilities.

From the group of 30,000 e-mails returned to the State Department, 110 e-mails in 52 e-mail chains have been determined by the owning agency to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received. Eight of those chains contained information that was Top Secret at the time they were sent; 36 chains contained Secret information at the time; and eight contained Confidential information, which is the lowest level of classification. Separate from those, about 2,000 additional e-mails were “up-classified” to make them Confidential; the information in those had not been classified at the time the e-mails were sent.

and then conclude:

Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.

To be clear, this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances, a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences. To the contrary, those individuals are often subject to security or administrative sanctions. But that is not what we are deciding now.

I Cry Bull Crap!!

ok so I get this "news" email with this story:

http://www.informationweek.com/government/big-data-analytics/10-nasa-images-that-will-inspire-you/d/d-id/1321673?

RIGHT off the bat I see this image of the Moon next to the Earth, and I scream "No! it's photoshopped!"

Info week claims it's a NASA photo ... hmmmm. That's what google's for. Search for the image: aha!

http://www.scmp.com/news/world/article/1847165/dark-side-moon-captured-nasa-satellite-million-miles-earth

The Chinese are spreading this propaganda! Trying to warp our brains! ... and again trying to claim NASA took this picture.

Keep searching, you'll find the truth. Here's the picture NASA published:

http://www.nasa.gov/press-release/nasa-satellite-camera-provides-epic-view-of-earth

Imagine that ... no Moon!
The next time you hear the term visionary applied to business leadership, think about what NASA has been doing for years. Images from NASA's satellites and spacecraft show technology at its most inspiring.

My first root canal. Who would have thought it would be a pleasant experience?? Dr Funk was amazing explaining each step, while working diligently to get it done quickly. If I ran a dentist's office, I'd be talking notes. Ilse (the assistant) was positively wonderful, never leaving my side the entire time. (I was guest in her room) Kudos to the entire staff.

Normally, I hate Ace... just out of the way enough to be angry with every visit. THIS location is THE exception. This store has what I need EVERY time I've gone there, AND they have staff that really understands what they sell and how to be helpful. If every Ace was run (and stocked) like this store, the world would be a better place.

I'm a DIY kind of guy, but I don't own every tool. ACA came and fixed my A/C in about an hour. Their knowledgeable technician found and fixed the problem, then thoroughly checked the rest of the system. I'm a delighted customer, and highly recommend their service(s).

Italian Sub is my favorite, the bread is perfect and ingredients fresh. My kids like the pizza, I'm more of a Chicago style pizza guy. I eat here at least 1/ week during the school year.
