Please don't speak Latin in front of the books.

Well, I was going to start a more professional-like library related blog, but then I went and put dyke in the url. So that's probably not going to go well.

What is the best comment in source code you have ever encountered?



// Magic. Do not touch.
// When I wrote this, only God and I understood what I was doing
// Now, God only knows
#define TRUE FALSE //Happy debugging suckers
stop(); // Hammertime!
// drunk, fix later
// Replaces with spaces the braces in cases
// where braces in places...

oh yeah!

the first one!

I just wish I could tell everyone who’s ever complained of being friendzoned: “Captain Kirk has something to tell you” and then sit them down and show them this scene.

California Leans Heavily on Thousands of Inmate Firefighters | KQED

The Bully Fire, which has burned more than 12,600 acres in Shasta County, is nearly contained. In the two weeks since it ignited, about 2,000 firefighters have battled the blaze. Nearly half of them — 900 — are inmates with the California Department of Corrections. These “low-level offenders” making just $2 a day are a crucial component in how the state battles wildfires.

“First day we was out here it was like 111 or 115 and that’s not including the fire,” says Emir Dunn. His orange fire suit swamps his slender body, but don’t be fooled by his size. Like most inmate firefighters he lugs more than 100 pounds of gear with him: an axe, food, water, fuel for the chainsaw.

The air tastes like a charcoal briquette. The wind picks up, and a mix of dirt and ash swirl from the ground. Dunn scours the scorched area looking for embers that could reignite. He sees smoke billowing from the ground. He readies the hose and he and a crewmate blast the smoking mound with water.

Dunn and 15 others will stay here for a 24-hour shift. They might catch some sleep, but very little. They hiked up here and they’ll hike back to the pick-up point, a slog that’s likely to be several miles.

Each crew has one professional firefighter, a captain, and the rest are men convicted of crimes including drug offenses and armed robbery.
