¡ @Roguelazer throw some database connection file descriptors shared after the fork in there, and you've got yourself a weekend blowout!
• @velartrill Excavating business logic? Most of us are stuck injecting it!
• @velartrill "excavated business logic" is a great phrase.
• @Hefelumpman I'm unable to determine the name he used in Ultima Online because presumably the name he used wasn't "Mark Zuckerberg".
http://www.quora.com/What-vi... If this is true, "Mark Zuckerberg" is the lamest and most boring Ultima Online character name ever.

"Reporting in for a friend...A buddy of mine told me that he was told by facilities that Windows 7 is not compatible with cat5 cabling, and that they were screwing themselves if they put in cat5. We agreed that the proper response is that they were going to install cat7 because the numbers need to match." - Andy Bakun

Have you ever read a Michael Crichton novel, or seen one of his movies, in which the hubristic scientist actually paused and declared: "Hey, science shouldn't be done in shadows. If I keep this new thing secret I'll probably do something gruesomely stupid. But if I discuss this innovation with hundreds of peers, some of them will catch my mistakes and things won't get out of hand. Nobody will die." It's the reasonable thing that any sensible tech wizard would say. But never in a movie. Or just picture someone uttering this line of dialogue: "Hey, um, Jurassic Park dude. Here's an idea. Why don't you just make herbivores first! A billion people will pay to come. (And you'll only have to pay John Williams for the transcendent-joyful theme music, not the scary stuff.) Then, in ten years, after the security systems are all tested out... make one T Rex! Everyone will pay to come back." Do you see how competence and openness are the buzz kills of drama? - Andy Bakun from Bookmarklet

We've reached Peak Two-Factor App. I have 3 2FA apps on my phone, because everyone needs to provide their own implementation of TOTP.
