This is why he takes FOREVER to finish his books! HBO should lock him up until he finishes his last 2 books!!!
I googled “Game of Thrones costume” because I need costume patterns for Comic Con. This came up instead.
Hey, being the man ain’t easy.
I can’t believe they killed my ninja Ned!
I tumbled on the following blog post while surfing reddit:
To sum it up, the author makes a point that programming is unnecessarily difficult for everybody aside from the people devoted to the profession.
First thing that came to my mind is the possibility of how the rest of the world views programming. Most days, I feel that the work I do can be done by almost anyone. I always seem to think that everybody knows at least what I know, like if I was the lower common denominator of knowledge. With stories of so many people coming out with iPhone app, I was starting to believe that maybe programming a small 1 KLoc project was really for anyone.
When a friend said that her pops didn’t think very highly of programmer, because anyone can program, I wasn’t able to really strongly defend my position, aside from saying that anyone can write a script, but the larger the application the more complexity you have to manage, and managing and building on top of this complexity is why we are paid decently.
This blog post gave me the reminder that perhaps programming even a small iPhone app isn’t as easy as it seems. Sure when I hear MVC, strategy pattern, adapter pattern, or polymorphism, it feels like basic vocabulary, but this isn’t the case for people that haven’t studied in my field. I also have to remind myself that I studied 4 years at university in addition to about 4 years of professional experience to get to where I am today.
Programming is like writing, anyone can write a sentence, but only the pros can write novels.
In which Game of Thrones house do you belong? Your Result: You belong in HOUSE LANNISTER - Hear Me Roar
Home to the wealthiest of the great houses, the keep at Casterly Rock sits literally on top of a gold mine, built into the very rock. From that lofty yet uncomfortable position, House Lannister rules over the Westerlands (and influences all of Westeros, by virtue of the kingdom’s purse strings). With the ascension of Lord Tywin to the house seat, the Lords of the Rock developed a reputation for ruthlessness as well as riches. This was due in part to Tywin’s remorseless efforts to keep his bannerhouses in line, but also because Aerys II was murdered by one of his own Kingsguard: Ser Jaime Lannister. Their unofficial motto states, “A Lannister always pays his debts.”
You belong in HOUSE TARGARYEN - Fire and Blood You belong in HOUSE BARATHEON - Ours is the Fury You belong in HOUSE STARK - Winter is Coming You belong in HOUSE ARRYN - As High as Honor In which Game of Thrones house do you belong?

Finally got my Nexus S!!! It seemed like it wouldnt happen, I face all kinds of hickups when trying to buy it….
I am an avid Blackberry fan, but due to weird circumstances that I won’t go into, I gave my Bold 9700 to my fiancee, and I am stuck with a iPhone 3GS. The iPhone was meant to be a temporary phone, as I’ve been waiting for the blackberry bold 9900 to be released. When it was first leaked on bgr, the timeline for the release was May 2011, but it looks like it won’t be out until Q3. I am tired of waiting and decided to get a Nexus S today. I am impatient, hopefully this new gadget will help me forget about the Bold 9900 for a while…
I recently found out that Bitbucket had free private repositories, this made me open to the idea of switching from Git to Mercurial. Afterall, using Git+Dropbox can’t possibly be better than using Mercurial+Bitbucket. After reading Joel Spolsky’s intro to Mercurial page, hginit.com, I decided to make the jump. I couldn’t be happier! I love the nice features that comes with Bitbucket (wiki, issue tracking). Bitbucket is probably not at the same level as GitHub in terms of features and UI goodness, but for recreational projects, free is best!
