Whoever writes a program writing "Error: NO_ERROR" in a log file has never looked at a log file to track a problem.

Overpopulation is the demographic state where you can find people advocating for a code convention in which a mixture of tabs and spaces is required for indentation policy.

Apocalypse is near when somebody claims that "a fourth option" involving non-breaking spaces should be adopted.

Linux UI is improving. I'm in the train, writing an e-mail in Thunderbird on my laptop.  I'm about to send the message and I realize that the "Send" button is actually labeled "Send Later". Oh! I forgot to share my phone connection with my laptop.  I do so and then, Network Manager connects instantly to my phone connection, the offline status changes in Thunderbird to online and the button is re-labelled "Send".  Wow, I'm impressed.  Some developers really do a good job collectively.

Just spilled vegetable juice on my desk. "And blood is spilling... AGAIN." came to my mind instantly, spoken with Dan Carlin's voice.

If you put a continuation and a monad in a cage for a fight, who would win? #fp #haskell

After the fight, we've opened the cage and Control.Monad.Cont walked out quietly.

Idea: name the business report database "reality". Thus, you can legitimately say to managers "you need to connect to reality".

Don't believe in magic. Especially Gartner Magic Quadrants. Enterprise architects use MQs as ass armors and the rest of us must live with the consequences.

Why do we have "solution architects" and not "problem architects" ? Stating the problem correctly is the most important step.

Or something like "problem analyst". People dislike the word "problem".

I have been part of so many projects in which the problem hasn't been investigated thoroughly. Often, we end up with an incomplete or innapropriate solution. A reason for that is that everyone in the project quickly want to leave the analysis phase and start "building" something in order to show to managers that something is on the way.

To tech writers out there: we no longer need "Typographic conventions" sections. Thanks.

Damn TripAdvisor user reviews! What if the one guy who gave a totally negative is correct? "Honey, I think we should rather stay home."

Excellents burgers qui confirment probablement la prétention du meilleur burger en ville. Plats variés. Service impeccable. Quelques bières locales en fût. Portions généreuses. Prix corrects. Note : nous y sommes allés en dehors des heures d'affluence.

J'ai payé cher pour 2 luminaire. Sur le premier, j'ai dû rapporter une pièce de verre qui était ébréchée dans la boite. Aussi une des six ampoules LED (payée 17$ l'unité... supposé durer 10-15 ans voire 30 ans) ne fonctionnait plus dans la deuxième semaine. Aujourd'hui, neuf mois après l'achat, une autre ampoule LED vient de rendre l'âme. Il y a un mois, le deuxième luminaire a tout simplement cessé de fonctionner (problème de transformateur?). Je l'ai rapporté et la personne en charge des réparations n'était pas disponible ce jour-là. Aucune nouvelle le lendemain. Ni le mois qui suit. Un mois sans lumière dans le salon. Évidemment, j'ai dû changer presque toutes les ampoules halogènes du deuxième luminaire car ils nous donnent les pires ampoules possibles au moment de l'achat (i.e. les moins chères). Il est difficile de trouver les ampoules de remplacement et c'est voulu, ça fait partie de l'arnaque. En passant, aucun problème avec les autres luminaires achetés chez Home Depot et Réno-Dépôt.
