Ask Slashdot: Are Progressive Glasses a Mistake For Computer Users?

gumbright Re:They don't work for me (464 comments)

I found them to be completely unusable. Had to hold my head in a certain position and had to always turn to look at second monitor, could not glance because of the sweet spot thing. Lasted two days, went back and changed to dedicated lenses, happy ever since.

Ask Slashdot: Where's the Most Unusual Place You've Written a Program From?

gumbright The Dogpatch (310 comments)

At the corner of 3rd and (if I recall correctly) Mariposa in the parking lot of an abandoned diner, sitting in a rented car writing code that talked to a box on the lamp post through special radios while the homeless ambled along on their business. This went on pretty much every other week for a several months. And this was just at the beginning of when the area was starting to get improved. Fun times.

Apple Says Many Users 'Bought an Android Phone By Mistake'

gumbright You have got to be f**king kidding me (711 comments)

"Smart" Gun Seller Gets the Wrong Kind of Online Attention

gumbright I don't get something... (1374 comments)

"but their ID-checking gun seems to default to an unfireable state, which might not always be an attractive feature." Isn't that the point? So that only the person with the bracelet or whatever can fire the gun? Unattractive feature? Isn't it THE feature?

Illinois Declares Pluto a Planet

gumbright How did that happen? (512 comments)

I'm sorry, I don't know how this got past me, as a resident of Illinois. I've been really busy lately.

On behalf of Illinois I most humbly and sincerely apologize for the frightening depth of stupidity displayed by our state legislature. I suspect it has something to do with the water in Springfield or somesuch.

Steve Jobs Announces iPhone SDK

gumbright Re:I love him. (467 comments)

Well, I don't know if I would go as far as "I love him", but I agree fully with your points. From the point the Apple ][+ hit my hands, I was lost to the silicon gods. He might be arrogant. He has a right considering the advances he has driven.
