One of the funniest videos that caught me off guard
Software that’s speedy usually means it’s focused. Like a good tool, it often means that it’s simple, but that’s not necessarily true. Speed in software is probably the most valuable, least valued asset. To me, speedy software is the difference between an application smoothly integrating into your life, and one called upon with great reluctance. Fastness in software is like great margins in a book — makes you smile without necessarily knowing why.
If you are so inclined, give it a read.
One of the weirdest, funniest things I’ve seen in a while.
Update! Found another one.
A few months ago, I started telling Anne, “I’m full,” when we are out with friends, my brain has had enough social interaction, and I’ve crossed a threshold from having fun to feeling overwhelmed. When I get full, it’s time for me to leave, and I don’t beat myself up for that…
I get this and it is so good. Introverts of the world unite!
My wife and I are members at a Chattanooga speakeasy called London Calling and we love the House Rules shared in their incredible spring menu (they update the menu as the seasons change).
Who will sit on the Iron Throne…of Rock?!
To quote Darth Vader, “Impressive.”
May solos in one.
John 5 fascinates me. He has to be one of the most talented living guitarists on tour.
I heard of him and found he was playing a local venue on the same day while I was sick and tickets were sold out. One day he’ll return and I can go to a show.
Love watching them play as much as hearing them. I can see myself in that environment. I missed my calling.
Even if you don’t like the language, you have to love the beat and the way this video is shot. The actors are great and the scene is complete political mayhem.
This video probably isn’t too far from reality these days. I can watch it over and over.
I’m still upset that Google provided Reader, then killed it. Don’t let the same mess happen with podcasts.
Big companies are trying to monetize and monopolize an open standard. Please don’t let this happen. Learn more:
Summer tracks. 🔥
I probably won’t be able to afford such a moving company the next time we relocate (whenever that may be). Before we move, I hope I remember to watch this video. This company has created a new category of science about moving.
My daughter sent me this video and it is far too accurate (and funny)!
Streams are just that: streams. In the same way that a river has a stream of water, programs have streams of data. Moreover, just like you can use steel pipes to carry water from one place to another, you can use UNIX pipes to carry data from one program to another. This was the very analogy that inspired the design of streams:
We should have some ways of connecting programs like a garden hose — screw in another segment when it becomes necessary to massage data in another way. This is the way of I/O also. — Douglas McIlroy
Streams can be used to pass data into programs and to get data out of them.
The running water water analogy is a great way to explain many complicated topics and Lucas Costa uses it to great effect. You even uses |pipes| to flow input from one command to the next.
Go read his post if, like me, you find yourself scratching your head trying to understand how to work efficiently on the command line.
I’ve seen John Prine live and even shaken his hand backstage. I’ve seen Roger Waters live. I’m privileged enough that I’ve seen both more than once, but never together. I found this video a while ago, but it always punches me in the gut. So great!
Just an amazing collection of classic guitars.
It is always amazing to me when someone excels at performing and almost looks bored while explaining what they do. Witness Mark Knopfler.
I don’t remember how I first stumbled across the amazing pianist VK Goes Wild. Here is a sample of her work covering Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody on a Bösendorfer concert grand piano.
It’s no ordinary cover though! She not only meticulously plays the music, but accurately includes what would be the vocals as well.
Her music is truly something to behold, especially because of her deep catalog of covers from Queen (obviously) to Pink Floyd to Metallica to Rammstein and more.
