Is dawned on my just now.

If you're a fan of war plane, the A-10 Warthhog [1] is a very unique plane. It was built around a nasty 30mm rotary cannon. Is like saying, "Hey, we've built an awesome gun here, let's make it fly!" Hence, calling it a plane seems like an understatement, this machine is basically a fricking flying gun!

I've the same vibe when looking at Lenovo Vibe P1m [1] mobile phone. Is like "Hey, we've a power bank here, let's build a phone around it!"

So many layers of technology stack as if the names are not confusing enough? But interesting indeed. What took them so long to acquire Ansible?

Hamilton is credited with coining the term "software engineering". In this field she was one of those who developed the concepts of asynchronous software, priority scheduling, end-to-end testing, and human-in-the-loop decision capability, such as priority displays which then became the foundation for ultra reliable software design., emphasis added

Via HN [1]. mdemare [2] has the right approach of handing 'reading backlog'.

"I collect ebooks instead - better yet, I collect Kindle Samples, which are free. I can sleep peacefully at night, knowing that all books that I want to read are on my Kindle, and when I actually want to read them, I start reading, and buy them when I get to the end of the sample (and plan to continue reading)."

I've literally lost count on how many mental face palm while reading the whole story. One thing that stick to my head (emphasis by me),

"And how do you even get out of that job? I imagined myself in a job interview in 2010, trying to explain how useful my extensive knowledge of Xenix, PL/M build systems, and VMS would be to my prospective new employer. There might be a time when you just stop keeping up with tech, but doing it in your 20s is really not that time :)",
