"Love isn't a state of perfect caring. It is an active noun like 'struggle.' To love someone is to strive to accept that person exactly the way he or she is, right here and now."

This is such a great interview with Warrel. About half the interview is Warrel talking about his love for kitties and doggies. Fun to see his nice side.

Β This sucks, he was so original in his sound. Lead singer for both Nevermore and Sanctuary. An incredible vocalist. You will be missed!

If you need to search all tables in a SQL Server database to find any tables that have a certain field name, this script comes in really handy.

Just like I wanna be years from now in the old folks home - help me die, but don't hold me down. Life had still gotta be enjoyable. Don't be mean just because I still have self-will!

The Front-End/Javascript landscape has become a chaotic Tower of Babel situation. It's changing faster than anyone can keep up and people with merely a years difference in skillsets are having issues even communicating. It's not because people are lazy and not keeping up - you get on a year-long project and start with the latest/greatest and then tune out the world while you get that project completed, then look around at the end of the project and the world doesn't look the same anymore. 90% of the bleeding edge stuff is abandoned a year later. It's to the point of ridiculousness. We need probably slow down a bit and take a look at the things that don’t change all that much. Not only will this improve the quality of our work and the value we deliverβ€Š—β€Šit will actually help us learn these new tools faster.

But - What is a Grand Moff anyway? Would you really want to be addressed with the title of "Grand Moff" anyway? Really, tha's like Grant Fuzzy Kitten or Grand Poobah. A STOOPID title - but the scariest figure to me as a kid. Could you imagine meeting the character Tarkin in real life, just coming down the underground walking tunnel right at you, looking you right in the eyes? Would you cry, pee, or run? Instant death to cross him. He ain't gonna put up with anyone stupid, and will just eradicate them from the future genepool if the be so.

The Repository Pattern is very popular these days. In some environments you will be shredded as a know-nothing if you don't use it for every possible project that involves data storage. And not to knock it, when it was first described, it solved a lot of problems with keeping the code involved with database communication organized and maintainable.

So, for a while now, we've had Pascal's Wager, which said that a rational person should live as though God exists and seek to believe in God. Because if Β God actually does exist, such a person will only lose their opportunity to posess material things by swearing off this physical world and only concentrating on the next world; wherefore they stand to receive infinite gainsΒ in heaven and avoid infinite losses in hell.

I cannot believe so much time has passed so quickly. When I first heard Joe's music, I was barely 20, he was 31 or 32. Not only did Joe turn 60, he did a year ago and I just found this video a year later, what a great party - many very famous people (Dream Theater, Deep Purple [That had to blow him away, they were already established heros to him when he first started playing, bet he never dreamed it could happen back when he was a teenager - his heroes, telling him Happy Birthday. Too Cool!] and more!) wishing him happy birthday.Fo
