  • Project HUGE: Adding Caffeine For Health And Performance Benefits

    Posted on Jan 5, 2009 at 2:49 AM

    Sorry for being late to the party on this one. Re: the overdose of B vitamins in supplement bars et al: Excess B vitamins are almost always excreted through the urine. They don't "build up" or become toxic. Depending on your diet/metabolism/excercise regime, you may need more or less of them, and ... read more »

  • Subversion - Cleanup Failed To Process The Following Paths

    Posted on Sep 2, 2008 at 3:09 AM

    Gah, sorry I'm late to the party on this post. Those looking for a solid introduction to SVN would do well to read this (online) book: (I've linked the "so you're new to SVN" chapter, but the whole thing's there) I've found this book to be an ex... read more »

  • Chase Bank - Worst And Seemingly Most Insecure Telephone Interface Ever!

    Posted on Jul 21, 2008 at 9:56 PM

    Ugh, banks are some of the worst offenders, but that's by far and away the most inexcusable security mistake I've ever seen. I'm yet to find a bank whose online banking site conforms to web standards - even remotely, or works consistently (or at all) in different major browsers. If they can't buil... read more »

  • Not Commenting And The Tipping Point Of Poor Programming

    Posted on Jun 9, 2008 at 3:24 AM

    To my mind, the issue isn't "don't write comments to make up for bad code", it's "write good code, write good comments".

  • Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull Starring Harrison Ford

    Posted on Jun 9, 2008 at 3:03 AM

    See I thought the movie was actually pretty good - much better than I expected. Except the bits that had anything at all to do with aliens. Aliens do not belong in an Indiana Jones movie.

  • Bigger, Stronger, Faster - The Side Effects Of Being American

    Posted on Jun 2, 2008 at 10:52 PM

    I'm generally in the same camp as Ben - I wouldn't ever feel comfortable using steroids, or even some kind of testosterone type supplement to improve my appearance or recreational performance (obviously they have medical applications - if a steroid dose prevents me from suffocating or something, I'm... read more »

  • June 1st 2008 - National Regular Expression Day! (Post A Comment, Win A Prize)

    Posted on May 28, 2008 at 10:48 PM

    Here in Australia we actually get the 2nd of June off (as some unimportant incidental public holiday - unrelated to technical advances anyways), and since we've got this policy of moving our public holidays to the Monday any time one falls on a weekend, it's just like I get a day off in honour of I.... read more »
