If I had the resources, I would create my own cloud server company called cubed. All configurations have the same value for #cpu, #GB ram, #GB disc.

1-cubed: 1 cpu, 1GB ram, 1GB disc
10-cubed: 10 cpu, 10GB ram, 10GB disc.

Maybe someone will pick up on this idea and do it. Because I currently need about 3x10^3.

What features of Java have been dropped in Scala? Despite more complex and less intuitive syntax compared to Java, Scala actually drops several features of Java, sometimes for good, other times provid...

The following are Quicksort comparisons. It kinda illustrates how different each language is. It also shows that Scala has features which allow it to have a more concise quicksort.

I wish g+ had better text formatting options. If they are going to let us write essays here, they should give us more formatting options.

Seeing FB vanity URLs in product commercials remind me of when the same products used to promote their AOL address. Just sayin'

Interesting to see short films based on "Charlie Bit My Finger"
"Charlie Bit My Finger" has become a zombie flick.

Trying to record all my thoughts in writing. It is kinda difficult. Wish there was someone who I can explain everything to, and they can articulate my thoughts in writing.

Interesting. Does goog buy moto mob mean goog is not satisfied with their android partners and want to build their own phone? I assume yes. Maybe they want to go the Apple route and own the whole stack.

Is the g+ iPhone app intentionally shitty, or is it just the one on my phone? Refreshing freezes the app for sometime (until data transfer completes?). It is worse when switch sections/screens. Also, why can't I get to posts from individual circles easily?
