The act of doing something you know you'll regret immediately after.

OMG, pity the poor slave owners, hahaha

"Hitherto no open opposition had been attempted to the laws under which the missions were making such progress; but the jealousy of the settlers against the Jesuits was gaining head. [...]

The King’s tenths, they [The Chamber of Belem] said, were so diminished that no person would farm them. Men of noble lineage could not bring their children to the city, because they had no slaves to row their canoes; their daughters could not appear at mass for want of fit clothing; many persons in Belem had no one to fetch them wood or water, and were perishing for want of slaves to cultivate their land.

In his reply, Vieyra observed that the evils imputed to the want of slaves arose from other causes,--from the nature of the country, from the scarcity of grain, and from the want of combination amongst the people. As for slaves, he said, experience had shown that however great was the supply, the mortality was in excess thereof."

NO
SLAVES
TO ROW
THE CANOES

& no one to fetch wood or water!

(after upgrading rc1 → rc2)

Fuck you Google, fuck everyone who writes Angular2, fuck me for choosing to use it.

"It looks like you're using the old forms module. This will be opt-in in the next RC, and will eventually be removed in favor of the new forms module."

'What is to be done'

A concise list from Russian mathematician who is currently a lecturer at the University of Manchester.

I don't even.

On the other hand, what am I, blind? Can't I see the word "Russian"?

"Я мать, я вне политики."

This is what happens to you & to your family when you proudly refer to yourself as "not political."

This is so smart, it's like saying "I'm a mother, I live in a fantasy world."

Herp derp, people are dumb :(

npm eats inodes for breakfast. A brand new Angular2 project downloads > 40K files in `node_modules` just to get started (this includes babel).

Nobody counts inodes unless for some reason they use a previous generation filesystem (ext4) where inodes suddenly become a scarce resource. The symptoms are rather common: there is a plenty of free space but you cannot create a new file.

So I decided to outwit myself via `dump(8)`ing `/home` to a network drive, reformating `/home` using a smaller `inode_ratio` value to make sure inodes would be abundant, then `restore(8)`ing from the dump file.

It went fine, except for 1 strange thing. The 1st time I launched Chromium it complained that "Your preference file is corrupted or invalid". Was it because I was dumping a live fs? It seems that everything else has been restored correctly.

"The pecuniary resources of the [West India] Company were exhausted by the various expeditions to Seregipe, Maranham, Angola, and Chili. Money became scarce at Recife. Hitherto all transactions had been carried on on credit; but now credit was stopped, and money had to be borrowed at the ruinous rate of 3 or 4 per cent. interest per month. Many of the planters were ruined by the floods and the subsequent ravages of the worm; whilst the small-pox committed great havoc amongst the valuable negroes imported from Angola.

So great was the pecuniary distress that the most desperate measures were resorted to, and which only made matters worse. Some creditors endeavoured to procure payment of their debts by means of large abatements; others threw their debtors into prison; whilst the government felt itself compelled to exact its dues by seizing the sugar produce at harvest time. Thus a conflict arose between the government and the public as to the priority of their respective claims, and the result was embarrassing and ruinous."

THE RUINOUS RATE OF 3%!

Those were the days.

A combat training in the Ukrainian Army, 2016.
I am sure that Russians are quite scared of it.

"траву в Десне стригут и белят бордюры солдаты-срочники. В Десне есть для этого цельный зампотыл, который ходит с линеечкой и проверяет высоту травы - это уже не шутка, это реалии. Если выше 11-13см срочно требуется покос."

I don't get why Microsoft did that for LinkedIn is a boring Java shop.

Java always means the end of the career ladder (any good developer will tell you that). It's an abomination of a platform. Java causes death of neuronal cells & a general paralysis of the brain. This has been tested and proven by numerous studies links to which I won't provide here to save screen space.

Why did they buy a company w/ an outdated stack?

I still don't get why it's a runtime calculation & not a user-option somewhere in chrome://flags. In the past, the font of UI>Browser>StatusBubble component was black (w/ the Gtk theme) which was fine & well. Now it's a barely readable gray on gray :(

"Change from 50% alpha to 60% alpha as starting point (as per sgabriel's recommendation). Add a second step where we calculate a readable color. This doesn't affect the classic theme but makes the text a little darker in some cases (like GTK mode)"
