Perks of being the head of a SourceForge project: after I churn out one (1) metric buttload of design documentation including references to other articles, I get to listen to a hush settle over the other coders as they go off and actually attempt to read it -- my stuff and the other articles.

Awwww, yeah. Do you know how hard it is to get coders to read documentation?

Sluggy fans: is that whole "let's go milk those kittens!" image starting to bother you at random times too?

I got it while brushing this morning.

*shudder*

Another theft

Thanks to cheerfulchaotic:

"As an adolescent I aspired to lasting fame, I craved factual certainty, and I thirsted for a meaningful vision of human life -- so I became a scientist. This is like becoming an archbishop so you can meet girls."

Yeah, but Mertuil told me that a couple of days ago...

This week's Brezsny, for Gemini:

"Your first rule this week is to push with all your might to ensure the arrival of ease and grace. Your second rule is to act as if the only way you can possibly get what you want is to pretend you don't want it. Third, be aggressively sensitive and ferociously receptive. Fourth, carry out the most macho form of surrender you can imagine. Fifth, be so uninterested in what people think of you that you impress them with your authenticity."
