Pretty awesome: various languages’ versions of “don’t count your chickens before they’ve hatched”. I like the common thread of «Man soll den Tag nicht vor dem Abend loben» and «Nie chwal dnia przed zachodem słońca»: “Don’t praise the day before sunset/the evening.”

Just got a one-sentence half-assed recruiting email from Kixeye on LinkedIn. And no, it wasn't "Join us, we're not that racist anymore!"

Just finished Stephen Pinker’s book “The Better Angels of Our Nature”. Any suggestions for the next book?

Here’s some of what we’ve been working on. Thought the more techie crowd on here might find it more interesting than my Facebook friends.

Requiring your current password to change your password is so 2010.

Watching Facebook try to come up with new privacy settings sort of reminds me of watching Creationists try to do science: it’s clear that they understand that there’s something that other people are doing that’s producing a desired effect, but since they fail to understand the process, they just sort of poke around in the general realm of what’s being done and hope something sticks.

shell-fu of the day, courtesy +Brian DeFreitas for reminding me that we came up with it (and courtesy +Jake Teton-Landis for telling me I should post it here):

manl() {
man -P "/usr/bin/less -is $1" ${@#$1}
}

Edited (thanks to +Brian DeFreitas): This can be used to add +commands to man (as you can to less), e.g. manl +/somestring sometopic to search for the first instance of somestring in sometopic.
