Ada Lovelace



It is Ada Lovelace day.

The story of women in computing is pretty sad actually. In the early days, teams of female programmers worked on the systems of the time. This was during the war.

When the war ended, they were forcibly removed. Those that clung to their career weren't exactly treated with respect. One woman that excelled in spite of this is the late Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper.

"It's easier to ask forgiveness than it is to get permission"

She created the first compiler and was involved in the team behind the Univac I. I've always thought of her story as an amazing one.

Can you imagine how different the IT field would be if a small group of people didn't succeed in turning software development into a boys club? These women excelled at this work. All this prescribed gender role bullshit is absolutely unnecessary. It's a real shame.

How did this happen?

I did not have a single drink yesterday. I feel like I've failed to fulfill an obligation to an entire ethnicity. Feel free to boo and hiss.

Accents

I just wanna know one thing... Why can't we have something like this for American accents without 90% of the country getting offended somehow?

Clatter, crash, clack

Sooo... My car is in the collision shop.

On the way to work on the 33 eastbound. Looking out, hey snow. That wasn't there 5 minutes ago. Visibility down. Hey! What's that ahead? Crap. Police car standing still. Gotta stop... Sliding. Oh damn, ton of cars lined up on the right. Gotta veer left. Bang, front left bumper. Bang, back left bumper. Bang, front left bumper. Stop. Damn. Ok, didn't hit anybody. Gotta get to work. Merging... Funny noise it's making. Hi, cop car. Bye, cop car. Ohh, somebody else slid too. Well that car isn't going anywhere. Driving, driving... Yay, work! Getting out of the dangerous conveyance. Eww, that doesn't look good. Calling shop. Let's get this great day started!
