I don't remember which room it was so I am placing it here. Somewhere we were having a conversation about safe drivers
and getting your drivers license.
Here is a list of the unsafest and safest places to drive.

I think the MTA (who run the trains/subways/buses in the NY area) ought to make a bigger deal over the fact that stuffed animals ride for free.  That's a big deal.  It's huge.  A freebie that awesome should be advertised more.

I've been in Niagara Falls for the weekend (came in Thursday evening, leave for Buffalo in about 30 minutes) - after Saturday I now know why there's so many Indian resturants on the American side of the falls.

Whenever you catch yourself wishing you had the newest and shiniest, remember that R2-D2 was a refurb.

IGnatius: Is the same true on the London Underground? My English friends are always telling me to "get stuffed", so maybe they're suggesting a way I could ride around town for free.

I just came up with the most *AWESOME* password. And it's frustrating that I can't share with you all how totally f***ing clever it is, because if I did, then everyone would know my password.

Remind me to share it the next time I change it.

Ig, how often do you change your passwords?

Is your password "derosnecnu"?

Ls, OMG! That's exactly the secret code I have on my luggage!

I only change a password if I have reason to believe it's been breached. In this case however it's a password for an administrative account on a project that will be shared with a few other people.

And now I've got to go change the combination on my luggage.

If I have a password on something that I plan to share with people, I make it P4ssw0rd

That'll give you unbridled access to the gmail accounts I use for junk mail, and maybe also to some newspaper accounts where you need to register but you don't need to buy anything :)

Protactinium, Sulfur, Sulfur, Tungsten, Oxygen, Rubidium.

Well, okay, Rubidium is just getting sloppy.

"You can't use that password. It looks simple enough that you might remember it without writing it down."

correct horse battery staple.

(Wrote this on FB, and thought I should really share it here... this
comes on the heels of a tough few couple of hours of class today).

I fail a lot... but I try to do it under controlled circumstances, so I
don't seem like the loser I often feel I am.

This is why I try to write test code for the libraries I make in C++,
and take improv classes.

The test code should catch failures before customers get exposed to
them, so I seem like I'm more amazing than I really am.

The improv classes allow me to make comedy-killing decisions in front of
other classmates rather than a real audience, so that I can learn better
choices to make on stage when we do have an audience, and make me look
like I'm a damned good improviser, even though I haven't done this stuff
for a year yet.

At least that's the theory.

Here's the big question, though: when have I finished testing and
screwing up in
front of classmates? At what point do you release the
code into the wild, and stand in front of a crowd of strangers to try
and make them laugh?

For the code, it's the date when the salesman promised the customer the
product or solution.

For the class, it's about a couple more weeks, when we do our graduating

In both cases, that time is decided for me. Which, maybe, is good...
because otherwise, I fear I would live in 'test' mode and never actually
step into the dangerous places where real life takes place.
