I realized that I never wrote my , so here it goes.

I'm a Python programmer working on open source. After hours I do whatever is my current obsession, so far I have gone through: , , , , , miniature , and music, , walking , , , , , , homebrew game handhelds.

I love and (no patience to watch tv/shows).

If computers are so smart, then why are they made out of silly con?

How about something like the second-price auctions, but for elections?

Okay, all the people who ask for ways of protecting your code from being viewed by others: nobody is going to look at your code unless they really, really have to. It's much easier to write code than to read it. It's very, very much easier to re-create your stupid scripts, but without the bugs you have in them, than to modify your unmaintainable pile of snippets you copy-pasted from Stack Overflow and changed until it ran without an immediate error. Or to fix the bugs in it.

I wonder how difficult it would be to make a replacement main board for the original G1 phone, but with a modern processor. It was a great phone, and I would love to be able to still use it.

What's the point of all this data harvesting and click tracking, if you can't even detect a 404 link on your front page?

Personally I travel with my smartphone, a separate MP3 player, a separate e-book reader, and a separate hand-held game console. Mostly because I'm paranoid about depleting my phone's battery and being stuck in a strange country without maps or any means to communicate.

Remember how smartphones were supposed to be the killers of portable game consoles? Why would you need a separate device, when your phone already has more games you could possibly play, for free, and all the emulators for all the existing consoles on top of that?

And yet here we are, with at least 5 different new "retro" game consoles announced just this year. Could it be that just as the Personal Computer is morphing into a phone, TV set, tablet, PDA and laptop, so is the smartphone differentiating?

Beware of People with a Mission, they will destroy everything around them, including themselves.

It's amazing how many people are there eager to explain me how to program ethically.

Plus, when busy on a secret project you look like you don't work on anything, which brings guilt and shame.
