Google Me!

   Хората доста често ме изумяват с простотиите, които набиват в Google. Следва списък на някои от по-забавните хитове към сайта минали през Google. Осъзнавам, че това писание вероятно ще ми донесе известен брой фалшиви хитове от хора опитващи се да бъдат забавни, но ще рискувам. Всъщност дори знам, че някои от тези са фалшиви, но процента е малък, а натуралната простотия ги бие. И така...

I'm Going Functional

   You may have noticed that I did not post any programming related articles lately. The main reason for this is that after I played with C# 3.0 and LINQ I have not learned anything really interesting. That is why I am beginning to study F#. To quote the "Expert F#" book review:

   "Expert F# is about practical programming in a beautiful language that puts the power and elegance of functional programming into the hands of .NET developers."

   Why learning F#?

Switching FTP Clients

   Since the latest version of SmartFTP client the authors stopped providing a free version for home users. I figured out the price would be like $20 and headed for the website to buy it. However it turned out that the price is double of what I expected. I can afford it but it is a matter of principle. It should not cost so much to upload some files to this website twice  week. So I dropped the pretty SmartFTP in favor of the ugly FileZilla. If at some point SmartFTP gets cheaper for home users or I get to do extensive amount of work with an FTP client I will buy it. No 64 bit version for me anymore. No pretty interface.

The Hate of the Linux Hater

   I have new favourite website - The Linux Hater's Blog. I found this site through a link on Slashdot to this article by Jeremy Allison (obviously well known in the Linux community for his work on Samba). After reading all of the posts and a great deal of the flames (that is how the Linux Hater calls the comments) I can confirm that Jeremy is right. This blog is Linux Hater's way to submit bug reports. More often than not the bug reports are not against the software but against the Linux community itself. In my opinion the Linux community is the greatest problem this platform has. It seems like they are more focused on hating Microsoft than improving Linux. The existence of phrases like "Microsoft-free" proves that. Also when they try to convince a victim to join their cause they do not point out the virtues of Linux but the downsides of Windows instead.

   You probably want to read Linux Hater's blog no matter on which side of the barricade you are fighting on. The guy is really competent (he says he has contributed code for KDE in one post) and is disillusioned enough to criticize the OS and the ideology behind it. Besides there are jems of pure fun for example calling Slashdot "Al Jazeera of tech journalism".

P.S. I have a challenge for Linux lovers reading this. Point me to a reason I should switch to Linux. Mind you that I use my computer for .NET programming (I do this for a living), games (I am living for this) and web/chat (also I think that the software mIRC is the greatest desktop software ever). Try me!

Adios Motherfucker

   Щях да ви пиша един дълъг репортаж от концерта на Ministry, но като няма от какво да се оплача и не знам за какво да пиша. За първи път си купих фланелка на група. Винаги съм избягвал да си купувам фланелки, щото на тях пише името на групата и има тъпа картинка. Ако имаше някакъв як лаф, от текстовете например, щях да си купя, но на фланелките все пише неща като "Iron Maiden". Е, к'во да афиширам, че съм фен на Maiden то е ясно. На новата ми фланелка пише "Adios motherf**ker 1981-2008". Adios, Al, обичам те.

  Айде, да не кажете, че е без хич ще помрънкам. Звукът до към петото парче беше салата (нормално за ламаринения бункер). После се оправи. Много е яко, че Ministry свирят парчета от новите си албуми. Изобщо не се държат сякаш това е последното им турне. Al не се е предал, а просто се преквалифицира.

P.S. Alien Industry управляват.
