Are You Sure This Is the Source Code?

garaged Re: Bogus argument (311 comments)

Oh, come on, I know I will be modded troll, but this is a fact of life, when was the last time you feel 100% confident on politician decisions? Almost every aspect of life is subject to trust betrayal, some of them having betrayal more often than not.

garaged Re: so what is porn? (310 comments)

As much as I would like it to be true, just a little bit of realism lets you see that humanity has a LOT of problema with self-control.

We say in .mx "power corrupts", test it statistivally :)

Ubuntu Developing Its Own Package Format, Installer

garaged Re: Good (466 comments)

Tendency? I have yet to see something like that.

i have found a few dependency problems using unstable, like 1 every 1-2 years, and most of the time it could be avoided by investing some 10 seconds reading what would be installed/removed with the current try, but a circular dependency, Im pretty sure apt has enough validations to avoid that automagically

The Text-Your-Parents-Your-Drug-Deal Experiment

garaged Re: just an observation... (267 comments)

So that's why you guys defend the atrocities your presidents do to everybody in the world? "Because we all are criminals"

My country is not in better shape, but at least I know a lot of people do not support all the criminal acts of our politicians, I just hope the same happens in yours

The Text-Your-Parents-Your-Drug-Deal Experiment

garaged Re: just an observation... (267 comments)

I had a childhood surrounded by quite a few addicts, everything from alcohol to coke , crack and heroin...

It is not funny, and even the less harmfull weed destroys a lot, nobody can tell me it is fun to do drugs, I had to pay a lot just by being witness of the shit a lot of family members did to themselves, drugs are not fun, at all.

The Text-Your-Parents-Your-Drug-Deal Experiment

garaged Re: This is a good idea. (267 comments)

Im usually worried enough by the freakyn stuff we have to see in these days, worrign a little more about my kids doing drugs or even selling them will not help me in any way.

I prank my girls with pretty obvious things, like "let me think if we can go to movie theatre, I will tell you tomorrow", and they smile right away, not after I need to explain them that I was joking.

If the joke need any explaining it is not a good joke, period.

Just remember how much money Gates spent on a self declared failed education project....

They might be damn good at making money, but they are not as good or dont even care wellbeing for the majority... After all they are represent the best of what is making the world be as it is, socially speaking.

Large Corporations Displacing Aging IT Workers With H-1B Visa Workers

garaged Re:And they (the workers) demand lower wages... (617 comments)

At least with a lot of immigrants from .mx, they may have been living worst that the 8-10 rented house, but they would not work around here! No wonder the could not achieve enough food, but for some reason migrating changes their mind and sudenly they can work, and hard... That is kind of weird for most of those who wouldn't go to USA easily.

Most of the time theoretical work is about making a pretty deep simplyfication of the actual problem... Even quantum chemistry does that...

Perl's Glory Days Are Behind It, But It Isn't Going Anywhere

garaged Re:Wait, what? (379 comments)

I am a big fan of Perl, have used it for a lot of years, and find it useful most of the time, but if you have tried to install any complex app made in Perl you have noticed is damn hard, with the hell of dependencies, and specific library version requierements it can become impossible to install some really interesting tools (diaspora for one).

Pretty much the same with small scripts, as soon as you start working on improvements by reusing libraries you find subtle undocumented API changes, and find yourself reading the source code to understand the phylosophy behind the implementation ending up in more wasted time that actually writing your own library.

Perl rocks, but is not by far the most elegant language available right now.
