MORE POLITICS

Well, it seemed apt I guess.

I'm not sure I buy the accuracy of this thing, but I get to hang out with Gandhi and the Dalai Lama down here, so I guess that's okay.

(I'm not nearly as collective as this would lead you to believe. I do feel that businesses are fundamentally not held accountable to the same standards of behavior that people are, which means that it is usually in their best interests to behave, for lack of a better word, evil. I think this is fundamentally the people's problem, as the general populace has never seen the need to fight this behavior in the only way we have - by not buying their crap. Therefore, the need for some central oversight I see in this was presumably picked up by the questions this thing asked.)

That bastard Occam

16:38 <Xophe> bdowning: I really can't see how that's relevant -- nothing
        should make the /host/ go SIGBUS
16:39 <Xophe> but, yeah.  Have fun investigating
16:39 <bdowning> Xophe: I agree, but I can't explain it any other way.
16:39 <Xophe> I can, in lots of ways
16:40 <Xophe> bad disk
16:40 <Xophe> cosmic ray conspiracy
16:40 <Xophe> little green men
16:40 <bdowning> Occam's razor.  :)
16:41 <Xophe> he came round and slashed your cables too?  Bloody hell!

/me dies again.

<jsnell> nikodemus: most of the people presenting stuff didn't quite
         understand what "15 minutes" means, and tried to cram the whole C#
         specification in there. but the CLOS butchery was especially annoying
<Maddas> Were the topics assigned or chosen?
<jsnell> chosen. The presenter wanted to know what "functional object
         programming" was, which was why he'd picked clos as a subject
<jsnell> then he criticized clos for being too imperative
<antifuchs> my bullshit bingo card is full
