  1. In Topic: What are you reading and what is on your book stack to read?

    Posted 6 Feb 2013

    Right now I'm reading through Practical Object Oriented Design in Ruby, by Sandi Metz. It's been a great resource so far, an eye opening "I'm not sure what kind of code I was writing before, but this is object-oriented code." sort of experience. I may pick up Principles of Enterprise Application Architecture after I finish this.

    On the fun reading side, I've got Monster Hunter by Larry Correia, and David Weber's How Firm a Foundation. I started The Alloy of Law, by Brandon Sanderson but got busy and put it down, so I may start it up again from the beginning. I've also got my eye on some of Felix Gilman's works after reading The Rise of Ransom City.

    I'm somewhere in Godel, Escher, Bach, but that's thick reading so I've been taking it a chunk at a time.

    Windows accepts forward-slash as a path separator. That and I'm lazy.
    Interesting.. Wonder why..


    HISTORY! It's a holdover from the early days of the operating system. DOS didn't originally support directories when they chose '/' as the switch character (which may or may not have come from IBM). So when they added directories they chose '\'. Not all of the DOS devs liked this, so they made the OS accept both.

    Yeah, but this one would be different. This would be a wallpaper trading simulator with an optional OS built in.

    I've been on a roll with worst ideas ever lately (it's buttery and delicious), but that's for a different thread.

    I want to see someone take the Valve model to an OS. Free to download and use, but you have to pay to change desktop background/screensaver/sound theme/etc.

    Edit: By "Valve model" here I mean what they've done with TF2. Free to play, but you pay for the hats.
