smelling like retched cigarette ashes

 * staring at the screen, drowned in coffee
 * smelling like retched cigarette ashes
 * have miscoded something… so, try to
 * recover as best we can.

Why are smart people using this?

Christoph

# WTF is this? http://optionparser.rubyforge.org/
# why are there like 20 differnt option parsers all called
# OptionParser!? and seemingly no attempt at
# disambiguation. its like an oldskool CPAN clusterfuck
# all over again. This is what you get when a buncha non
# english speakers design a programming language in
# english, and a buncha SanFran webdesigners, in all their
# VWbug-pastelcolored-sushiloving-DeathCabforCutie glory
# flocked like hipster lemmings because Ruby was
# “written by a Japanese guy”. This language is seriously
# pissing me off. Why are smart people using this?

Don’t read this code right after dinner

Christoph

/*
 * Accessing the EEPROM is `interesting’ to say the least
 * – don’t read this code right after dinner.
 *
 * This is all about black magic and bit-banging the
 * device… I wonder in what hospital they have put the guy
 * who designed the i2c specs.
 *
 * Oh yes, this is only the beginning!

yellow pages

Christoph

 * dammit! If they were YELLOW pages, we could
