    Whoops. Or perhaps Twitter has a feed injection bug that’s been exploited? Maybe Anna Kournikova’s eponymous worm has a new Twitter-focused incarnation? Who knows? Maybe the good folks @ the Code Project really do want to help out on the biological front...

    The kids have gotten to the age where they’re pestering us to play Dungeons & Dragons with them. Well, my oldest son is and he’s dragging his sister along (kicking and screaming, metaphorically-speaking). Heh. Unfortunately, this isn’t his Grandpa...

    In other words, if I get promoted that means what...?

    • 1 Comments
    The way I read these alleged research results, a lottery is just as effective at picking people for promotions as what we’ve been doing for years? But is there a better way of choosing individuals for promotion? It turns out that there is, say Pluchino...

    It almost reads like something from “When I am an Evil Overlord...” The arrested men had setup an elaborate surveillance operation of the prison that involved a camouflaged tent, powerful binoculars, telephoto lenses, and motion detection sensors. But...

    Tim and I don’t see eye2eye on some things, but quite often he nails the the whole “married geek” thing. It’ll definitely be funny to watch Tim’s comix grow and change when they have kids. A lot like my own father enjoys watching the slow-motion train...
