12/18   Happy 25th birthday Perl, and FUCK YOU Larry Wall for fucking up
        the computer science formalism that sets back compilers development
        back for at least a decade:

        \_ I tried to learn Perl but was scared away by it.  Maybe scripting
           lanauages have to be like that in order to work well?

6/27    You can't put 16GB RAM in the new 13" Macbook Pro.
        Fuck you Apple!
        \_ Really?  I know they say you can't put more than 8GB in the 13"
           MBP, but I have 16GB in my 2011 13" MBP and it works perfectly.
           \_ I thought the new ones have soldier on HD and RAM just like
              the Macbook Air?
