Here’s a helpful article on how to remove yourself from many invasive people search sites.
I had gotten a job at Microsoft in California. I moved out there and was surprised to learn that I was moving next door to Scott Hanselman (a famous programmer at Microsoft). As I headed up in the elevator with Scott for the first day of work (’cause he’s apparently friendly like that), I began to think, “but how could I afford California real estate?” “And isn’t Microsoft headquarters in Washington? As the logic of it all began to unravel, I woke up.
I had no idea sawing could be so awesome.
Primus covered the songs from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Definitely on the weird side. You can hear it here.
Apparently, most Calico cats are female.
I’ve been trying a game on my phone called Ingress. It’s a GPS game where you gain points or energy by walking around. It doesn’t work at driving speeds…you have to walk. (It was initially developed by Google to get people to photograph monuments and public things they were looking for images of.) There are 2 teams. At some monuments or public areas there are “portals” that can be captured by either side. To capture a strongly held portal, you’d either need to walk around a lot to get energy or bring a lot of people from your team.
I joined the Enlightenment because it seems to be the losing side and I wanted a challenge. Everybody picks the Resistance.
I had a problem where I would create data sources in BIDS but they wouldn’t show up in the ODBC administrator. Today I learned that there are 2 ODBC administrator programs…one 32-bit and one 64-bit. The 32-bit system files folder is called SysWOW64. The 64-bit folder is called System32. Of course it is. (WOW stands for Windows On Windows.) Making things worse is the fact that the 64-bit ODBC administrator executable is also called odbcad32.exe.
If you play LittleBigPlanet on PS3, you may have tried some of the community levels and found them to be mostly just ripoffs of other games. The best way to find the good levels is to go to the community->search page, and search for most hearted. The quality levels are hidden there.
Also, Sean proved that there’s nothing funnier than calling someone a hacker in local multiplayer.
