  • The Way Of The Warrior And The Chance Not To Be Fired

    Posted on Jan 6, 2009 at 1:15 PM

    Ben - you have to remember, Bushido was written at a time when, if all else failed, you could just pick up a sword and cut someones head off. In todays society, you can't do that (and get away with it), so the whole "warrior" thing should be taken in perspective. While I commend you for trying to r... read more »

    Hi Ben - I realize the title was the official one - I think I was just stating the obvious, that steroids are a world wide issue (may have been unnecessary - sorry!). So, about my general statements: 1. Performance enhancement drugs are addictive. - Addiction may not be the right word, but there ... read more »

    Posted on Jun 9, 2008 at 1:59 PM

    Ben, steroids are most certainly NOT "like breast implants or liposuction" - well, half of that, anyway. Liposuction is immensely dangerous, and over used, and should only be used in extreme cases. Breast implants? Cosmetic surgery that carries the same standard risks as an appendectomy. The probl... read more »

    Ben, toast masters is a group dedicated to public speaking. http://www.toastmasters.org/ I've never been a member, but I have met people who are, and they get pretty excited about it. I've heard they are very supportive to beginners. Put that on your 2008 "100 days" goal list. Cheers, Davo... read more »

    Without a doubt Ben - take the public speaking course, and then USE it. Join a toast masters club or something. Anything, just to get out there. Public speaking is a skill, and it takes a while to get proficient in it, but you get better and better each time. Cheers, Davo... read more »

    Think you're tired now....wait until you have kids! ;-) I know what you mean, though, about eliminating excuses. Sometimes it just takes a spark to get you going. Getting more used to social experiences and pushed out of your comfort zone is just like exercising a muscle at the gym - the more you d... read more »

    Thought you'd like this: http://www.cnn.com/2007/HEALTH/diet.fitness/09/21/kd.mindless.eating/index.html I agree with you about the late night / large meal eating.

  • I Just Can't Understand Object Oriented Programming (OOP) And Join Tables

    Posted on Aug 17, 2007 at 10:08 AM

    Hi Ben, I'm not sure I fully understand your problem - is it the practice of joining (inner/outer/full) many tables, or within one table? Or is it just joining in general? Sorry to ask, but you'd be surprised at how many developers out there don't know the difference between an inner and outer j... read more »
