If it wasn't for the good 'ol internet I wouldn't have heard of John Dolan. I haven't read any of his stuff since I bought/read War Nerd and Pleasant Hell awhile back, so I thought I'd google what he's been up to..

..read the article and the (non-retarded) comments until you're bored, then Dolan's reply..

Poor old Agresto. He means ill, but he just doesn’t have the training. He needs a tutorial in how to use the web to slam somebody. So listen up, Agresto: here’s how you do it. I’m a teacher, so I’ll do the James Edward Olmos thing and teach Agresto how to write invective. I’ll just pick a name at random—John Agresto. Sounds pretty horrible already, don’t it?

I don't even care how much of either side is true, though if I had to place bets I think I'd know where my money would sit. Thank you internet <3.
Meet John Agresto, the corrupt neocon labeled a “mediocrity” by 16 academic organizations. The slime just keeps spewing from the blubbery lips of my former employer, John Agresto, Provost of the American University of Iraq-Suleimaniya (AUI-S). As those who've read my last eXiled article will ...

This review of Gotham hits it pretty close.

"It’s a show that’s so desperate to include Bruce “someday I’ll hit puberty and then I’ll be Batman” Wayne, that there was an entire subplot in the second episode devoted to the pint-sized billionaire’s escapdes with burning himself."

Visualization of Server Traffic is Like the Coolest Game of Pong

I have to say ... This is pretty mesmerizing. 

Each little "ball" is a request to the server

On the left: the IP numbers from the users connecting around the world

To the right: The url's being served up

In the center: The "static calls being serviced by our front end

The brightness represents the speed with which the code written by our awesome developers delivers data (aided of course the great hardware)

Had any of the balls gone past to the right, that would have been a serve we couldn't return. Try that, Federer!
