Hey, I like PM. I have had development managers try to direct me, and they mess it up. Also, better them than me. I will write the front end, but I like to have something that the users will actually want to use. Also, good PM will work with developers and users/customers to come up with reasonable goal for the next release.
Silly me, but how is that comic strip read? Left to right and then top to bottom? Or top to bottom and then left to right?
Just like any other comic. The mundanes "fix" "errors" in the code, and then apparently push them to master, at which point the dev ops script deploys them to the server and breaks it.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

I still remember my first boss. He thought, by just renaming the function name, the program will start giving desired result. For example, by renaming the function "SaveToDisk()" to "SaveToDatabase()", the program will start saving data in database. Sometimes he took our class -- "Programming is nothing but Instruction to computer about what to do". But he did not know that computer understand the instruction in a particular language, not in English.
The problem with politicians is that they are generally lawyers. Always thought maybe we should require a politician to have a PhD in history. Maybe then we would not continue to make the same stupid mistakes.
Good God. Have you ever talked to someone who had a PhD in history? Their goal in life is to achieve fame in their field by revising current historical thinking to mean something else. Instead of learning the lessons of history, they rewrite history to give the lessons they prefer.
Well yes and no. ASL is not simply a transliteration of English though. It also has it's own syntax and grammatical quirks which means that for anything other than a very simple 'sentence' or one specifically designed to avoid pitfalls you're not going to get anything a lot better than a Google translation of a Google translation. And we know how those work out ...
