There is a way to watch Star Wars prequels with the original trilogy and actually make things ... better.  Behold!

There is only one problem to Machete Order, which is that it leaves Weird Al Yankovich's "The Saga Begins" standing on its own with no visible means of support.

No, check that.  The writing, acting, effects, and music are better than the original.  And you only lose 5:36 from your life.

Usually when a title asks a question the answer is "No."  But in this case I'm leaning to "Maybe."

Lenovo builds fine machines for the most part... but why bother putting in Bluetooth if it doesn't work consistently when I'm just five feet away?  I can leave my iPhone in the car and keep hearing audio until I'm inside the Starbucks.

Five feet? Wow, HP should license that tech and double their range.

That the Perl community accepts Dist::Zilla as a good idea makes me wonder what the hell they're thinking.  When did it start being a good idea to distribute code in a form other than the one the developer worked on?  It only breaks patching and forking.  No big loss I guess.

I will NOT sign in with my "Bob"damned browser, Google.

From now on I'm making a custom Chromium build without nags.

After years of running my own services and avoiding Google, I gave up and joined the Borg. At this point trying to avoid emitting a signal is in and of itself a damning signal. I've instead decided to spend my time thinking about what a Good Citizen signature looks like when I would otherwise ponder ways to avoid leaving a signature.... Of course this very post likely mucks with that a bit...

That's why I NEVER visit lkml or vger again. (I think I was the first who created libgit, and was shouted down).
The bosses shout at their subordinates, so the subordinates shout at the newbies also. You might be angry, but you should behave in public.

Ender's Game was written for the purpose of establishing the setting for Speaker For The Dead.  No wonder Speaker is so awesome.

PS: Card is still a dick, but those two books were still good.

Mormon doctrine emphasizes personal choice, and an evangelical religion is very aware of its minority status, so those details don't surprise me. See also the Writing Excuses podcast, dominated by Mormons who are skilled writers and not jerks.
