  • We have data to contradict this argument: Over 400'000 people have enrolled in an online Scala course with a success rate twice the industry average. "Almost vertical learning curve?" Please!

  • Don’t be the person who cannot deliver a release because GitHub is down.
  • Commands (main packages) don’t have to be placed in src/cmd/, but that is a nice tradition that has emerged from the Go standard library,

  • Hopefully it is clear to you now that hardware is not getting any faster.
  • You need a language which is efficient, because inefficient languages just do not justify themselves in production, at scale, on a capital expenditure basis.
  • maintains the illusion of concurrency by rapidly switching the attention of the CPU between active processes

  • writing all kinds of automation scripts (I use Go instead of bash almost all the time)

  • Klein is known for publishing outlandish and critical pieces about the Clintons.
  • Someone should do a book about Ed," Merrill told the Post. "They could call it 'Bulls–t: The Problem with Anything Ed Klein Writes.'"

  • “They are obsessed with ending access to reproductive healthcare for women in America,” Richards declared, using language far sharper than her remarks to lawmakers earlier that day

  • "It does have the effect of undermining social democratic policies and I think it makes some sense to think of it as, purposeful or not, class war."
  • "If Corbyn can survive the huge assault against him, which is pretty remarkable to watch, not just from the right but from the Labour establishment, the kind of Blairite establishment. It's a shocking, almost hysterical propaganda campaign being launched against him."

  • purchased or rented Amazon Instant Videos cannot be shared at this time.

  • An interesting note is that this date is a bit earlier than the above patches. The CA knew to revoke it on March 15th and the above patches were worked into software a few days later. If the attacker was targeting specific users, the damage to those users may have already been inflicted.
  • An even lower tech attack is possible and it's why revocation does not work: By returning a HTTP 500 error, the browser will the continue on as if revocation checks showed the certificate to be perfectly fine.

  • The one thing that is clear is that the trust model isn't all that trustworthy.

  • By the time a pet has an elevation in the waste product creatinine  in its blood, 75% of the nephrons in both kidneys have been lost.
  • By the time the pet shows signs of CKD, the damage is severe.
