The topic of functional programming has come up with some of my non-Software Engineering friends, who are still interested in computers, and then I ran into a video about it from one of the greatest programmers I know of, John Carmack.  He talks about implementing Wolfenstein 3-D using Haskell.

Using XFCE on the Pixel with Crouton... what I've learned so far:
1) XFCE makes everything really tiny on this high res display. Any tips on High-DPI ?
2) when you have a trackpad that is this big, you really need good palm rejection!

Also after talking to some folks who work on getting other Linux distributions running on the Samsung ARM chromebook, it sounds like abstracting out CMT would be something they're interested in generally.

If you're serious about stopping SOPA and it's ilk (and you're an American citizen and can vote) then you should bug the hell out of your senators and congressmen. This site is helping us try to set up in-person meetings with our elected officials or their staff. Go do it!

BTW, if anyone in SF actually wants to go, we should coordinate... maybe there will be some fairly large groups requesting these in-person meetings and we could all go to show our support

Map of the Mythbusters' recent cannonball run. If you haven't seen the pictures of the perfect holes in the house you should check them out. Why did we stop using cannonballs again?

Your Acer Chromebook is the first one that I've seen someone using in the field, and I'm glad you're liking the upgradability of it.
 
Acer C7 +Chromebook going under the knife. 16GB of DDR3, 128GB SSD, only $300 if you catch the right newegg deal.

Want! At least the memory. My oldest is thinking of buying a Chromebook for school. Maybe I could talk her into buying my AC700 so I can upgrade to the C7. I would love to have more than 2GB to play with.

It doesn't help that it's on a USB drive and is going to take 16 hours to copy off.. oh and I'm leaving for India in about 24 hours.
