Two near death encounters - By linchtime, mind you - Two near death encounters in one day, both with some ass-wit trying to make a right on red without checking that the (active) crosswalk was clear. For those of you who have forgotten, I am 6'4" and prone to Hawaiian shirts. They didn't "not see me," they didn't even look. Completely unrelated I swear but does anybody know a way to shatter a windshield on less than heartbeat's notice? Asking for a friend.

                • does this happen to anyone else?? I bought a 2015 Toyota Corolla last month, and since using it I’ve become basically inept at driving anything bigger. I had to drive a Dodge Journey crossover a couple of nights ago and I was a hot mess on the road, even backing out of the parking spot was terrible because it doesn’t have a rear-view camera.

                • I'm trying to buy Jethro Tull's "Aqualung Live" and download it on my phone. Is there any service left that doesn't make simple music commerce a complete untenable pain in the neck? Amazon forces you do download an app and work on some damn cloud service, I just want to buy and have damn it! Mp3va requires Facebook integration, that's never happening here... I'm literally trying to give them money and they're doing everything humanly possible to drive me to BitTorrent. Wonder why the industry is tanking...?

                  • Pondering powershell some more I'm asking myself the question whether I would use it on Linux as well. The more I learn of it the more the answer is: yes, as long as I don't need to run external programs. But looking back at my scripting quite a lot of it doesn't really require external programs other than for reasons that bash is not suited for any kind of data handling beyond the most utterly trivial and of course doesn't include a full HTTP client. For a typical hackjob of downloading some JSON and interpreting it a bit to get at the interesting parts plain powershell is quite sufficient and if I need more the .NET stdlib should be more than enough. However if I do need external commands (like git) powershell rapidly becomes a PITA because of things like interpreting any output on stderr as failure whereas linux programs often use stderr as a debug message channel.

                    • @xrevan86 Granted, I'd probably use Python on Linux. But Powershell has a rather strong feature, though it isn't a new one. It's easy to program in pipeline style - adding maps, filters, folds step by step - when you're used to thinking functionally and Powershell is one of the few languages that combines ease of experimentation and a flexible (dynamic) type system with a functional workflow style. I've looked quite a bit for functional languages but most are statically typed and while that's great for larger coding it's not pleasant for scripting. There are a few languages that support the functional pipeline style but pretty much all of them as lisps and that kinda doesn't do it for me.

                    • OK feel free to ignore the following: Before I get famous (ha ha amiright), I just want to say I've made sexual mistakes in my past. Our culture has long been too silent on the topic, leaving people to learn by trial and error, almost guaranteeing that somebody suffers. I'm not, however, using that as an out, but to suggest a solution - educate. I'm sorry to those I've hurt, to those I've harmed, and believe me when I say I've learned, and I hope I've learned the right things. And that's what I have to say on all these celebrity cases, too: have they learned, and have they learned well? The culture of 35 years ago, when Kevin Spacey was committing his misdeeds, can't fairly be compared to today, but it doesn't excuse him - has he learned better since then? (clearly not, considering his "Don't hate me, I'm gay" tweet). TL;DR, you should all actually hate me, and maybe I'll go die now that my secret is out. tw sex and junk
