Insomnia, kinda

by joe In reply to My UnKnown Blog

<div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Well, I can't sleep but it's not because I can't get to sleep. It's more because I don't want to go to sleep. Not yet anyway. So what to do 'till I do want to sleep? Let's randomly ramble inane babbling on the blog. Why not.

I watched a strange movie today. It was Purple Butterfly and was mostly a Chinese movie. I say mostly because there were some Japanese elements to it and, frankly, I</div><p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://x-nc.blogspot.com/2006/02/insomnia-kinda.html">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Curling rocks!

by joe In reply to My UnKnown Blog

<div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Ok, that was a really bad pun. But I'm serious about the fact that curling is really fun to watch. I still don't quite know the rules and lingo but the strategy, tactics and technique of it all are great to watch. I spent most of the time watching the womens matches but I did catch some of the mens. The US team got the Bronze while the US women just suffered from some very bad luck and some</div><p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://x-nc.blogspot.com/2006/02/curling-rocks.html">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Swimming upstream through the mud

by joe In reply to My UnKnown Blog

Between the medication, lack of sleep, pain and inactivity my brain has turned to mush. The old analogy about your brain being like a muscle and needing exercise is accurate of not true. Even with the last year or so at my last job being very superficial just being around techies and talking the talk helped keep things from atrophying. But it's been one year five-and-a-half months since then.<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://x-nc.blogspot.com/2006/05/swimming-upstream-through-mud.html">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Damien Katz: Signs You're a Crappy Programmer (and don't know it)

by joe In reply to My UnKnown Blog

Damien Katz: Signs You're a Crappy Programmer (and don't know it): "You know those crappy programmers who don't know they are crappy? You know, they think they're pretty good, they spout off the same catch phrase rhetoric they've heard some guru say and they know lots of rules about the 'correct' way to do things? Yet their own work seems seriously lacking given all the expertise they supposedly<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://x-nc.blogspot.com/2006/05/damien-katz-signs-youre-crappy.html">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

NewsForge | US military is blocking Slashdot and SourceForge.net: "I was told recently that Air Force bases in the San Antonio, Texas, area are blocking one or more of our sister OSTG sites, like SourceForge.net, Slashdot.org, or Freshmeat.net.

What's in a name?

by joe In reply to My UnKnown Blog

******!

How many other words can evoke the kind of reactions that this word can? I'm a middle aged Caucasian male so the only way I can use the word is to couch it in code. "The N word." If I use the actual word it's called a racial epithet and I'm a Praia. People have lost their jobs from using this word, even in correct context. Now, if I was Africa American, I could use this word left and<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://x-nc.blogspot.com/2006/05/whats-in-name.html">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

A new feature on the blog

by joe In reply to My UnKnown Blog

I just added this new feature to the blog. It's something that anyone and everyone can have. It's a new service for blogs called batBack. It allows you to vote on articles and a bunch of other really cool stuff. There's a good possibility that this could drastically revolutionize blogging. Well, maybe just make it a bit cooler. I must say I'm not so confident about letting people vote on my<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://x-nc.blogspot.com/2006/05/new-feature-on-blog.html">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

BofA: Train your replacement, or no severance pay for you

by joe In reply to My UnKnown Blog

BofA: Train your replacement, or no severance pay for you: "Bank of America has been steadily moving thousands of tech jobs to India. The latest to go are about 100 positions that handle BofA's internal tech support.

While many of the bank's Bay Area techies accept the inevitability of their jobs heading abroad, what rankles them is the fact that, in many cases, they're being told they have to<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://x-nc.blogspot.com/2006/06/bofa-train-your-replacement-or-no.html">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>
