Simple description of effective software development. "all new lines must be executed at least once"...{guilty}
Here is my list of heuristics and rules of thumb for software development that I have found useful over the years:   Development 1. Start small, then extend. Whether creating a new system, or ...

Just got a Delphi survey "why haven't you upgraded" and there was actually a "don't use it any more" option. That's been missing in the past. Although the "what percentage of new development is VCL/FM?headless" still had to add to 100%, even though in my case there is a GUI but it's HTML5 and C... and the back end is C++/PHP/Python.

I miss Delphi. It would be really handy if Delphi did what I needed, but it doesn't and there's no real prospect that it will. C++ is full of tricks for naive idiots, where it has the feature but it doesn't work. "exceptions'... that mostly work, but you can't get a stack trace and it's up to whoever throws it to decide whether to give you more information than "something bad happened", and ideally they will actually throw an exception rather than, say, an integer. Or NULL. The C++ Frequently Questioned Answers (FQA) is an essential tool.
C++ FQA Lite: Main page. This is C++ FQA Lite. C++ is a general-purpose programming language, not necessarily suitable for your special purpose. FQA stands for "frequently questioned answers". This FQA is called "lite" because it questions the answers found in C++ FAQ Lite.

Interesting info about tax and income in Oz for 2011-2012 from the Guardian: Median income for full time workers is $46,900. Earning $80,000 puts you in the top 20% of all income earners, $100,000 gets you into the top 12%, $150,000 into the top 5% and $180,000 has you in the top 3%. And yes, the wealthy pay most of the tax. The top 20%, for example, pay about 61% of all tax, but they also earn about 45% of all income.

Which is lower than I thought.

I have my new bike lights from http://seesense.co/ (sorry about the autoplay bullshit on that site), and they seem to work. So the first thing to do, obviously, is leave them in a bucket of water for a couple of hours and see if they still work afterwards (I did actually put them on my bike yesterday and they also work there. But I'm too lazy to go for a ride in the rain).

Got my 8x16 LED boards from http://rgb-123.com this week, and given how bright they are I wondered how visible it would be in direct sunlight. In this video there's slight shade on the right hand side of the board just to show that the thing is working. 

To the naked eye it's much more visible than this, but the camera isn't showing it or the colour too well. I don't think it'll be good for 'read at a glance' signs, but as a light display it's eye-catching enough. Fully on it draws about 3A at 5V.

Interesting. But not too useful, he basically says swallowing air causes burps and some farts, digestion causes farts - especially smelly farts.

Wholly sheet. A list for the absolutely paranoid micro-controlling abuser in your life. "spending time alone with someone else" and "putting your children before your spouse"... it's not enough just to be a doting servant, you have to abandon everyone else in your life. And that's just to make the "not being unfaithful" cut, sod knows what it would take to lift that to "good partner".
 
I agree.
Being alert to ways spouses can be unfaithful to their mates is vital. These 10 behaviors can lead to the ultimate unfaithfulness. Learn them and be on guard.

I’m all good with fidelity in the scientific sense of the word. I’m the sharing type, too. :)

Delphi Gem of the day: putting "reintroduce" on a destructor.

    destructor Destroy(); reintroduce; overload;

In our case all we got was a memory leak because the rest of the inheritance chain didn't override the destructor.

While I remember, here's the firmware for my http://www.hexbright.com/ light. Has "on but flicks" mode for bike headlight, next press turns it off if it's been on for a few seconds. Because I don't like having to cycle through all the modes to get it to turn off. Open Source FTW!

Eco-house (model) made of Lego!
I made this for my University Architecture portfolio. It is a concept design for an environmentally friendly home. The main concept being played with here is the invention of solar panel windows, which is the idea of having a transparent solar panel which can double as a window letting light in an producing energy. The solar panel windows can be seen here: www.flickr.com/photos/hawksflickr/11938840884/ The garden on the roof concept is supp...

Following the Abbott lead and "whatever you did, we shall undo" made explicit. I'm amused at the same time as I am horrified.
