Image of the Moment
This picture is of a small subset of almost 1800 people making snowangels all at once in Bismarck, North Dakota, trying to set the world's record. There's something really cool about snow angels. You can see even more people at the cellar.org article.
Geek Article of the Moment
An interesting and well thought-out (if a little rant-ish at times) piece: Object Oriented Programming Oversold! Like all things, I think the answer is somewhere in the middle, but it was interesting to think about how I'd taken OO as handed down by the programming gods. I thought The "Wearable" OO-example and conter-argument was especially good; if you're a geek in a hurry, do a text search for that word and read the next few paragraphs.
'Course, I'll probably keep any views along the lines of "Objected Oriented Programming sucks...way over-rated, just a fad" to myself during job interviews...
Funny Dialog of the Moment
"Rach, ya know, I can see you naked any time I want."
"All I have to do is close my eyes. See? Woohoo!"
"Ross! Stop that!"
"Ah, I'm sorry."
"Come on! I don't want you thinking of me like that any more!"
"Uh, sorry. Nothing you can do about it. It's one of my, uh, rights as the ex-boyfriend. Oop... oh yeah!"
"Stop it, cut it out! Cut it out!"
"Okay, okay, I'm sorry, it will never happen... Uh-oh! Wait a minute! Wait... wait... now there are a hundred of you--and Iím the king."
--Ross and Rachel from Friends, John was quoting this the other day and I looked it up.
