Stratterical Cortmonics @ ADBAD. Or maybe just an odd SPU absolute value

"Piracy is almost always a service problem and not a pricing problem. For example, if a pirate offers a product anywhere in the world, 24 x 7, purchasable from the convenience of your personal computer, and the legal provider says the product is region-locked, will come to your country 3 months after the U.S. release, and can only be purchased at a brick and mortar store, then the pirate's service is more valuable" -- Gabe Newell ... Great, glad you realized it, now go f**king fix Steam!

So, I made another #AltDevBlogADay video on a subject I only minimally understand

Mostly playing Angry Birds- it's nice that it has leaderboards that are based on the people in your circles. I should try out Dragon Age Legends, heard good things about it.

Here's what happened with my ADBAD video. I had my SIGGRAPH keynote presentation saved on a thumb drive. Just to be safe, I also saved a copy locally on my hard drive. I then loaded what I /thought/ was the version off my hard drive into keynote, spent an hour making changes, saved the changes, and tried to eject the thumb drive since I wasn't using it. It looked like it had successfully ejected in finder so I physically removed it from the USB port. Suddenly I got the dreaded "disk was not properly ejected" data loss message. I didn't think much of it until I tried to save the keynote presentation again. It failed because it couldn't find any of my videos/images, since they were really on the thumb drive.

At this point I realized that I must be trying to edit the version off the thumb drive so I put the thumb drive back in but it was too late. That version was already corrupted and went from 150MB to 12MB. So I figured I'd at least save all the changes I made locally to my HDD somehow. Here's where it gets fun. Keynote tried to save the first few slides and then hit a video that didnt exist anymore and aborted the save. I later found out that keynote deleted my old presentation version before trying to save over it with the new one. The new one failed to save so basically the file disappeared alltogether. Then to top it all off, a few minutes later keynote just died.

The solution ended up being to remove all videos from my presentation so that I could at least save all my changes to my HDD. Then I downloaded my old (pre-SIGGRAPH) version of the presentation that I obsessively uploaded 10x to my ftp server and steal the videos off of that.

So yeah, all this is my fault. I am the one who pulled out the thumb drive while I was still working with the presentation in keynote. However, I think apple could have possibly handled everything a little more gracefully. I didn't pull the drive out DURING a save (unless an autosave was happening in the background) so I wouldn't have expected it to totally destroy my file. Who knoiws what keynote was doing with it. Also I think finder could have made it more clear that the drive was not successfully ejected, and that the disk was still in use. Finally, should saving a file on top of another file (replace) really completely delete the original file if the save fails?

I love OS X but sometimes I really think I need an ubuntu partition just in case...

If I die having never realized my dream of being in a TMBG cover band, my life will have been for nothing.

I just found out what the SCARY in C++'s SCARY iterators stands for: "Seemingly erroneous (Constrained by conflicting generic parameters), but Actually work with the Right implementation (unconstrained bY the conflict due to minimized dependencies).” At first I thought the acronym was asinine but now that I know what it stands for, I understand how it would appeal to C++ programmers

I'm in your frame, removing your milliseconds
Introduction
you miss L1 so much that you cry yourself to sleep every night with a picture of it under your pillow

IBM changed the PS3s cache associativity section in the HW manual to a disclaimer. It reads "no-way associated with your code"

If we ever lose all the Amazon rainforest trees, we could replace them with your code. They have the same number of branches

Miss Teen S. Carolina saw your stl container overusage and thought it could help countries like The Iraq that dont have maps

you spill so much that even BP is glad they're not you

I heard your render func is in a contest with Gran Turismo 5 to see which is finished first

your shader only does one lookup... and its the phone number for the suicide prevention hotline

your code is so overengineered, that even Erich Gamma, Richard Helm, Ralph Johnson and John Vlissides cant understand it

Your DMA transfers have so many stalls, I thought your MFC was having a matsuri

mike action realized Insomniac can greatly improve graphics AND go back to 60fps just by firing you

Oh, hai! I rewrote your code to use linked lists. It reduced cache misses by 75%

The Mayans looked into the future, saw 2012 lines of your code, and were convinced humanity is screwed

Speaking of SPURS, you have so few jobs scheduled that the US government had to adjust their unemployment numbers

I heard your cache just replaced Linfen, China as the most polluted place on Earth!
Bragging rights
Errr... I spoke at GDC and I'll be doing SIGGRAPH. Does that count? Also, once I peed next to Sean Connery!
