Busy with family, I didn’t get to watch both of yesterday’s NBA games. I saw the second half of Lakers @ Heat, which was about what I expected. (I had the Heat by 10, so I guess it was a little off, but still.) The good game, however, was on earlier and was the one […]

Jon Skeet’s Coding Blog : Visual Studio vs Eclipse

John Skeet posted a pretty good feature comparison between Visual Studio and Eclipse. (Jon Skeet’s Coding Blog : Visual Studio vs Eclipse) I don’t really use IDE’s much, but I’ve had good and bad experiences with both VS and Eclipse.

Regarding the Death Penalty

Did you ever notice that some people shorten “Death Penalty” to “DP” in written forums? What’s with that? “DP.” “D to the P.” “Donkey Puncharello” if you’re not in to the whole brevity thing.
