Cooking For Geeks
To properly assert one's "geek"ness and intellectual understanding of the subject matter, you must get the definitions right!
"sous vide - cooking food in a temperature-controlled water bath"
Sous-vide is NOT cooking in a water bath but rather cooking in a vacuum enclosed containter often immersed in a water bath.
A bain marie on the other hand, is specifically a method of cooking in a water bath. Often for the preparation of whole poached fish or other foods. :| Far too much time spent watching Alton....
Good Database Design Books?
I've enjoyed his book on trees and hierarchies in sql as well. Nice discussion of topics not often touched on in a lot of introductory db literature.
Good Database Design Books?
IMHO: Joe Celko's SQL for Smarties (http://www.amazon.com/Joe-Celkos-SQL-Smarties-Programming/dp/0123693799/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books) has shown itself to be very nice book when the need to go beyond the basics to a little deeper understanding of SQL is needed.
There are many other books on the subject all the way to source material from Date and Dodd but Celko seems to be well informed and writes fairly well, I think.

Science Attempts To Explain Heaven
"And low and behold, if you think of it as a bad hack job, then suddenly it all makes sense. And we know religions can be entirely fabricated. Scientology anyone?"
This argument against religion was always very interesting especially if you link it to scientology. Isn't this precisely one of the reasons Hubbard created scientology? To basically serve as a straw man argument against religion?? Therefore all of you agnostic/atheists who blast scientology appear to be either falling/jumping into bed with the founder of scientology! Congrats!

Active Directory Comes To Linux With Samba 4
I've got a line of outfits that can benefit from this!
There are so many companies I know that have little to know real dependence upon AD other than the fact that it's all they're really known...
Do Nerds Have Better Sperm?
Maybe it's time to turn in your geek/nerd card....
Should sperm count/ fertility be a part of the entrance exam for CS and other science degrees??
... just a thought....
While I usually refer to myself as a geek, rather than a nerd (geek = nerd + personality [IMHO]) this is one that hits home with me. I've been married 2 years now and been trying to conceive for 3+ with no luck. Testing has determined that I have an abnormally low count (healthy in all other respects) and no current cause has been identified.
So no, being a geek/nerd DOESN'T mean you have better sperm, you INSENSITIVE CLOD!
