Obama and Romney Respond To ScienceDebate.org Questionnaire

cicatrix1 Re:Here be no surprises (608 comments)

Might as well quote the whole thing. You're still twisting it:

If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.

He's obviously talking about infrastructure. Stop being willfully obtuse.

cicatrix1 Re:Here be no surprises (608 comments)

You realize many democrats run businesses, too? He would have pissed off his richest donors. Seriously, do you believe anyone is stupid enough to mean what you think he means? For fucks's sake you guys can't think at all anymore.

Ask Slashdot: How Do You Track Bugs For Personal Software Projects?

cicatrix1 Re:Mantis (221 comments)

Second Mantis. It is a webapp, but it's fairly simple to get up and running. It's PHP+MySQL, which should run fine on a mac (you do have homebrew, right?). I don't think you're going to find any single-user bug tracking programs, but I could be wrong!

This was after the plane had landed safely. And well after the highschool science project had cleared security on the way INTO the plane. You're way too fucking scared.

Watchmen Watched

cicatrix1 Re:Not very "Family Friendly" either (489 comments)

Especially in this case. Watchmen specifically turns the "super hero" motif on it's ear and disassembles all preconceptions. That's the fucking point.

Favorite text editor?

cicatrix1 Re:Other (1131 comments)

Joe's Own Editor is just called joe (for [J]oe's [O]wn [E]ditor). I haven't used it since the mid 90's before I found my groove with pico. Now it's vim tho and I won't be going back any time soon.

cicatrix1 Re:Can you have read the same book? (356 comments)

Uh, no? I have many reference books that are very good at what they do, but people who aren't interested in programming would hate them or not even have the need to read them at all.
