easy to use vs. easy to learn

A few years ago I went to go do my first oil change on my bmw motorcycle. The filter is encased in such a way that the only way to get it off (or on
for that matter) is with the bmw specific oil filter wrench. Can't use one of those squeezie jobbies, and I can't jam a screwdriver in it to get it off because that still leaves me with the problem of getting the new one one.
so I drive 30 miles to the closest bmw bike place, pay $30 for an oil filter wrench. Change the oil, go to my garage to find a home for my new wrench and I place it down..... right next to a bmw motorcycle oil filter wrench.
It would seem that the guy who sold me the bike gave me one and I just forgot.

Heh. I've done similar things -- buy the wrong part, then go to put it away and find in that location an identical wrong part. At least it means we're consistent in the way we file things away. :)

Spell: I'm surprised you didn't just cut the RJ11 plug off and put a proper pair of alligator clips directly on the leads! What kind of hacker/phreaker/anarchist are you? You never know when you'll need to use that on a pay phone!

(a what? pay phone? what's that?)

Hehehehe. I was tempted to cut the off the plug, but I was borrowing the equipment from someone else. :P

A little trick I use on strange filters is to stab a hole with a phillips screw driver all the way thru the filter at the top and just twist it off.

It looks *very* cool.

you have to differentiate between 'commit', 'pull' and 'push' afaik. the later sync with your raid5 DLT backuped s00per save server.

(no I'm no git master yet)

 

and... NT4 definitely was superior to OS/2. I've worked with it, and coded for it. It definitely was no fun.

OTOh, os/2 just was another proprietary system, which basicaly shared the general closed source problem windows nt4 had and still has too.

 

for some fancy reason, there even is an adon to git: st-git which seems to be good for stopping to work on patch a, pull patch b from the stack, work on that... and commit.

nah, NT4 made it worse. Back in NT 3/3.51 days, the GUI layer was in

userland. They went and put the whole stack from driver through GDI in


Yeah, that's what it was 3.51 was the good one and it went all downhill from there.

Yea, thats why everybody uses fancy frameworks to abstract SQL
(regardless which language he uses)

yea, and they've all got it backwards, you're not supposed to add another layer of crap on TOP of sql to get rid of it, you get rid of it by getting rid of it.

Time to consider liquid cooling, super overclocking, and neon tubes mounted inside a PC case made of transparent plexiglas.

I've been surprised lately how well some of these things do work.
I installed an OS from a CD drive on linux machine #2 that was mounted on linux machine #1 and exported as a drive to vmware.

I realize it's not THAT amazing, but the fact that it actually works without having to do any magic, shows how far at least some things have come

... and a number of their own (non-summer-of-code) projects as well. Google Collections. Etc.

What Java really need is a better memory model: the thing that slows java down is memory allocation, NOT the JVM these days. C# gets it right, sadly.

...the garbage collection once more ;P

 

Maybe some of you have heard of ccmalloc? (a code.google.com projet ;-) Its replacing the default alloc/free to be more thread aware. Gives huge boosts in some cases.

btw, is there a useable database written in java or c-carpet around?

Someone gave me an APC PDU.. which is basically just a really heavy duty rack mount power strip with a lot of outlets and a 30 amp plug on it. Which I can totally make use of. The only problem is, it doesn't have the little L brackets to mount it into the rac... Anyone have some spare APC PDU brackets lying around???

Thanks :)
