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.

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."

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".

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.
