My doctor says it's OK for me to argue with myself as long as I wear a Bluetooth headset.
Do Developers Need Free Perks To Thrive?
Yes, show your developers matter. I didn't realize this until I joined my current workplace. Asking for IDE license? (approx 1/20th of my monthly pay): "We'll look at that". Multiple times. Complaining your machine is crap? (laptop with 4 gigs of ram, maxed out): no reaction at all. Asking HR to purchase bicycle via cycle scheme?: "We'll look at that" (3 months now, not a single step taken). Needless to say I'm looking for a new place.

State Rep. Says Biking Is Not Earth Friendly Because Breathing Produces CO2
Yeah, I don't pay road tax via gasoline but that also means I pay a lot less to foreign countries for oil and spend more in local economy. Complaints about cyclists not paying road tax is bullshit.

DARPA's Headless Robotic Mule Takes Load Off Warfighters
I know it's pricey and not perfect, but some cons of a mule compared to this machine:
- You can't chuck a mule into storage to wait until it's required
- You can't ship a mule in a, say, container
- You can't (at least easily) airdrop a mule
- You can't temporary hide a mule for couple days in a forest or under snow
- You cannot remotely controll a mule
- Mules might have difficulties in staying calm when bullets and bombs start flying arround
- In case of injury the whole mule must be replaced, no spares
Disclaimer: neither military, nor mule specialist ... Based on very general understandment about military
30 Days Is Too Long: Animated Rant About Windows 8
Happy user of Lenovo X1. Got it with Windows8 (no other option), played for 4 hours and installed Ubuntu. And since Windows for some reason showed me that there's only 65 gigs of free space left on my shiny new computer with 128Gb(Gib?) SSD I wiped windows cleanly (including recovery partition).
I also got a new Dell workstation at work. Not sure if it was managements fault or there is no choice but it came with Windows8, which was wiped immediately. Got it on VirtualBox now for IE testing which is about 1hr/month. I'm not sure if many of those millions had a choice.
