Seems like a long time ago I said I would return to Windows, Jan 2010 to be closer.
Well, it didn't last long back then but I have gone back to Windows again.
This time it looks like I'm staying with Windows after over 10 years of only Linux. I was a huge advocate for Linux and spouted the message a'high. I initially learned a lot here at LXQ to get over the hurdles that are placed on everything Linux.

assert(technology != magic);

Posted 08-12-2011 at 01:37 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

Some years ago I happened upon an uncomfortable truth regarding source code. I happened to be programming in an interpreted language (the only language I knew when I was 8 years old), and I made the unfortunate realization that without the interpreter, my code was useless. Somehow that seemed disheartening to me, so I vowed I would learn everything there was to know about computers. I vowed that I would understand the machine.

I didn't really know where to turn (I didn't have any...
