Unpopular opinion(?): programming language choice matters a lot for a software project. I'm not just talking about "choosing the right tool for the job", I'm talking about the fact that some programming languages are simply strictly better than others. Unfortunately, I still haven't figured out what makes a language better in this way, but I'm absolutely certain the effect exists.

Are there people in the world who look at something like Eclipse and say to themselves: "This is a good tool"?

or… maybe don't do that.

yum info telnet-server

"So, here's what I'm saying right now... I didn't go in and say like gonna put in my language hat ...gonna go read some whitepapers and let's see how to do generics. No no. I just took C, deleted the bad stuff from it, and then generics like fell on to my lap."

If someone still has doubts whether we need a world government with real power, check out what's happening in Brazil's rain forests and explain to me how such problems can be fixed.

I wish there existed software/systems architecture tools.

Master/Slave terminology in computing 

Tried Sublime Text again after 4ish years. Holy crap it's fast. Thanks for lowering my expectations, Electron craps :)

Also just clipped my hair back to 5mm and removed that beard. Pictures upcoming if I ever manage to make a photo that doesn't make me look like I'm dying in the next 2 weeks.

Just doubled down on Trump losing the presidency. Come on, Democrats, make me rich!
