Does Typing Speed Really Matter For Programmers?

danilo.moret Yes, but not words per minute (545 comments)

but for random bursts of input when altering or creating new code. Sure speed helps at those times, but not for long times like typists. More like video game accurate shooting from time to time than constant drums playing.

10th Birthday of ASIMO

danilo.moret Kill or love them while they are young! (53 comments)

The Asimos were created by Honda.
They were created to make life easier on Japan.
And then the day came when the Asimos decided to kill their masters.
After a long and bloody struggle, an armistice was declared.
The Asimos left for another world to call their own.
A remote internet forum was built...
Where Asimos and human could flame and post pics.
Every year, the Slashdotters send a poster...
The Asimos send no one.
No one has seen or heard from the Asimos in over forty years...

Give me some anecdotal evidence of that.

Social Networking Behavioral Agreements At Work?

danilo.moret Re:So... (326 comments)

I disagree. If one is to make an educated decision, it should be over an educated issue. If there's an EULA five thousands words long, there's too much detail to make an educated guess.

EULAs and other agreements such as the mentioned in TFA should be less than five hundred words long, otherwise they are void unless signed by the user's lawyer as well.

Google Earth To Show Ocean Floor

danilo.moret Beta, as usual (181 comments)

They are just beta testing, as usual. In a few decades lots and lots of what today is dry land will be underwater. They could wait a bit and claim they are showing underwater imagery but no, it's Google, they need a beta.
