Let’s start with the high-tech stuff:
Jeff Bonwick already got pointage
from Jonathan this week, but
piece is totally a must-read anyhow.
As you might have heard, there’s a lot of talk about open-sourcing Solaris.
Easy to understand in principle, but
Mike Kupfer offers an
at the details.
Still in Solaris-land,
read about the dreaded
rm -rf / (even
typing that into my editor makes me shudder).
Enough of that geeky stuff; recently we’ve had a charming
from Jennifer Love Hewitt and
magical ambigrams from Chandan—if you don’t
know what an ambigram is, follow that link and you’ll be delighted.
Also worth a visit is
Paul Humphreys who on top of
working at Sun has
best side-job in the world, and I’m not kidding.
Tim Caynes, scroll
down and read his untitled September 23rd piece, I have no idea what he’s
talking about but it’s still amusing.
Mount Sabalan, you ask? It’s in Iran. Right away, you’re thinking
geopolitics, culture wars, political turmoil.
Nope, it’s a vacation spot, and
Masood Mortazavi, one of
our better writers,
it on his summer vacation.
