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 :)

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."

(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.

Finally, a good old fashioned power outage at my house! This is the first

time the power has gone out since we got the generator. I wasn't home, but

Wesley connected the cables, started the diesel engine, and threw the transfer

switch. Good job dude!

You're not alone, fleeb.  In fact, I think that's probably the case for most people.  Risk is risk precisely because it's scary.  But the brave man is the one who finds a way to do it anyway. 

Whether that's by putting yourself in a situation that forces you into a deadline or you choose your own, In my opinion, it's bravery nonetheless.  :-)
