  1. In Topic: What was the last movie you watched?

    Posted 28 Dec 2015

    Just saw "The Force Awakens" with my son- his first theater movie experience. It was a good flick, but the more I think about it, the less I like the Star Wars franchise now, and this movie crystalized it for me. It's a universe where the good guys are super-human and above all law. Even Darth Vader gets redemption at the end, despite having literally committed murder on billions of people in the movie- remember the Death Star? I just can't get behind the idea of 'divine rights'. They'd be perfect if it weren't for that- but literally every character that can use the force is considered more valuable as a person than every character that can't, and the droids are given sentience, but that sentience isn't recognized, even where slavery isn't allowed. This isn't science fiction, it's a spiritualized Dungeons and Dragons in space, complete with wizardly old men in robes with beards who guide young idiots with swords so they can be ninjas.
  2. In Topic: What's your phone?

    Posted 13 Jan 2015

    I somehow lucked out and got a Note 4 for Christmas, and I fucking love it more than I've ever loved a phone- or tablet, for that matter. The camera on it rocks, it came with a free year of Evernote pro, and the screen is big enough that it's actually useful even when there are technically better options.

    It's a bit big, and it's probably not for everyone- but go to a shop and try one yourself, because it should be on your list of contenders almost no matter what. I will probably use this phone for the next 5-10 years happily.

  4. In Topic: What are you working on today?

    Posted 15 Sep 2014

    I'm doing some app engine stuff in Go, and some C++ stuff for research.

    Go's pretty neat, I think we need a forum for it here, or will sometime soon.
  5. In Topic: Do programmers really work 80 hrs per week?

    Posted 15 Sep 2014

    I spend massive amounts of time thinking about what my code should have in it. But I generally code for less than 2 hours a day.

    And I don't think I'm alone in this. Who, when they get their brushes out, doesn't have some idea of what to paint, or how to paint better than the last time? Who sits down at their drafting table to invent the greatest invention ever, without thinking about how it works?

    Everyone else refers to me as "Nike" or Nick C. It is N.Y.K.C. but Nukes is pretty cool
