RIP.

"James Randi, a magician who later challenged spoon benders, mind readers and faith healers with such voracity that he became regarded as the country’s foremost skeptic, has died, his foundation announced. He was 92.

The James Randi Educational Foundation confirmed the death, saying simply that its founder succumbed to “age-related causes” on Tuesday."

Guidelines for having a happy internet life:

1. Don't use "Sign in via Google" (no Facebook, or Twitter) -- businessinsider.com/google-use

2. Always create new accounts for each service you want to register to, verified by e-mail which is NOT hosted on GMail,

3. Use an e-mail provider that supports subaddressing (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Email_ad) -- use an unique subaddress for each service (e.g. [email protected]),

4. Use different usernames for each service you're registering to,

5. ???

6. Profit!

TIL In Germany there is a law forbidding you to wear masks or anything else that will decrease the effectiveness of enforcement imposed on you by the police.

Sad fate of every software development project:

1. All code that can be refactored, will be refactored to a level of unrefactorability.

2. All code that is easy to remove, will be removed in favor of code that is hard to remove.

Big production movies: if the only difference between you and soap operas is the lower frames per second parameter, then I think something's not right
