My boss just sent me this blog post from a friend of his.  The language is a bit rough, but I came close to spewing soda (pop for those of you in Piksburgh, coke for those of you in Atlanta) all over my monitor.

 Edit: Hold on, the link's dead - trying to figure out what happened.

Edit2: I'm not going to pull this article (because I'd have to explain what happened), it was quite funny, but I've not heard back from Casey so...  Sorry for the false alarm :(

Edit3: Link's up again.  Thanks Casey :)

Edit4: Casey's Noel's friend :)

 

  • I just tried google's cache & wayback machine; apparently the article has been deleted. You wouldn't per chance have somewhere in your cache?
  • Sorry about that guys... I had a source control issue where I updated my weblog from two different machines without sync'ing, so it temporarily thought it should remove the article from my server. Should be up permanently now, same link.

  • You know, people often say Linux won't be ready for widespread desktop use until it is "intuitive" enough for a mother or grandmother to use w/o problems.

    So it often makes me wonder if by that definition _any_ os environment is ready for desktop use.
  • Larry, you may find this funny, again, if has *rough* langauge so don't be offended.

  • This short story that Larry links to is a great reminder of the dangers of trying to create software...
