iPad Is a "Huge Step Backward"

happyfrogcow Re:FSF-approved version: +$99 (1634 comments)

So I have to buy the hardware, then I have to buy the right to use the hardware in a way that I want to? I call BS.

happyfrogcow Geek, Leave it at home (1095 comments)

Oh, you said England? Bloody hell, bring your laptop and a few spares.

When a person is afraid to speak their minds and say no to a stupid decision, stupid decisions start ruling the day.

What Do You Call People Who "Do HTML"?

happyfrogcow HTSD? (586 comments)

I propose hypertext structural designer. They are just creating the structure after all.

We try to promote cross-functional teams though, so we don't have someone who does "just HTML". They do CSS, javascript, java, write tests, some xquery, xpath, etc...

Four years ago I saw an interview with Feingold, the democrat from Wisconsin. I thought he would be the one running this election, and now I wish he were.
