The algorithms link is really cool. I also like that the hair wasn't even acknowledged. Funny.

I get nostalgic for the games I played back then. Doom over coaxial network with friends and the original X-COM are at the top of the list.
I also miss the CS dept computer lab where I spent much of my time back then with its rows of UNIX terminals and a person on the other side of a little window who would give you the code you printed out.
But mostly I miss the bright eyed optimism of youth I had back then when so many roads yet untraveled lay before me.

Load Runner has a nostalgic place in my heart. I spent a lot of time playing that on my old Apple II clone. Glad to see these games getting updated.

Interesting batch of topics this week.
I check-in pretty rarely. Mostly I only do when I'm waiting for my food or in line at Chipotle and want to kill some time. As far as privacy goes I've decided not to worry about it. My facebook settings are set to public. That way I never make the mistake of thinking that I'm posting something private and only share things that I wouldn't mind the world seeing.

I wish I would have had OneNote when I was in school. I probably still wouldn't have been a great student but it would have helped for sure. The office lens that auto-keystones and imports into OneNote would have been really helpful.

Funny episode! Really like Larry's pick. I'm not really a tattoo guy but if I did I think that could be a cool tattoo.
Basic story: I got in trouble for something (forget exactly what) in 6th grade and had to write that I wouldn't do that again 100 times. I asked if I could type it instead and the teacher said yes. Basic for loop saved me a bunch of work.

Had a great time at Build. Lots of really great info and things to look forward to. I also liked seeing C9 front and center this time.
Another way to get touch to work on a second display (or if you have multiple touch displays) is to use the classic Tablet PC Settings control panel. The Setup button on the Display tab is used to associate pen/touch with the proper display.
RIP XP. We had some good times for sure. :)
It was a good talk and I enjoyed it. I'll admit that I still tend to dive into code without thinking sometimes. So it was a good reminder.
I feel the presentation may have put some people out of their depth. When it delved into existential quantification several of the people around me reacted with confused laughter. So I think the quite rude response of the audience at the end when we couldn't ask questions because half of them were leaving at once wasn't an indication of the quality of the talk. I think it was just a reflection of the fact that many "programmers" these days don't have a CS background.

Just got packed for my flight to Build. Looking forward to it!
Really like the look of the UI on the fruit flavored Office. I want that on my Surface.
Regarding Avatars, at one time we could use our xbox avatar. Does that no longer work? I don't see it as a profile option.
I work with a guy that likes to slip puns into his comments. He's a funny guy.
At the last place I worked there was a sr developer that would add feedback to other people's code in comments. Sometimes the feedback was positive and sometimes not so positive.

Good show. Office lens is really nice. Unity is a lot of fun to use. So easy to get a basic game going. I'm working on a simple tower defense game and hope to have it done soon. So I guess if I'm repping anything right now it would be Unity. I've become a fan.
