Blue skies from pain
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.
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.
Ls, OMG! That's exactly the secret code I have on my luggage!
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 :)
a passvoid then?
Protactinium, Sulfur, Sulfur, Tungsten, Oxygen, Rubidium.
Well, okay, Rubidium is just getting sloppy.

Excuse me, that's my oxygen you're breathing.
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.
