So a lot of you got some pretty cool work spaces where you need to zip around back and forth between benches to get stuff done. Typical chairs are cool but you know as well as I do that sometimes the arms can get in the way and be a real pain in the butt. What’s the solution?

How about medical stools?

You can zip around back and forth in between benches tables and computers as fast as you want and you don’t have to worry about any arms getting in the way. You can even adjust the height too.

Get yourself one of these medical stools here.

How and why did you get into programming?

How and why did you get into programming?

Ever since I read the book, Coders at Work by Peter Seibel, I’ve had this fascination with how and why people in the computer science industry got into programming. I don’t know, call it a sick infatuation, but the topic does interest me.

So I thought I’d write up a little post asking you guys to share your stories as to how and why you got into programming? What was the first programming language you learned? What fascinated you with code or computers in general? What was the first computer you worked on? Were you self taught or did you take classes at school?

Feel free to share as much information as you like below in the comments section. Also feel free to give any advice and tips to anyone wishing to get into programming themselves. Spread the wealth of knowledge is what I always say.

Have fun and I can’t wait to read your stories.

Samsung-Galaxy-S4-

The Samsung Galaxy 4 is out, are you impressed?

Samsung-Galaxy-S4-

So I guess the next and greatest (insert name of never ending new version of gadget here) is out and blah blah blah. Look, I have nothing against new things but just because a company comes out with a new version of a product it just came out with a new version of less than a year earlier, doesn’t mean I’m going to be jumping up and down, peeing myself over said new product.

The latest company to come out with their latest product is Samsung, releasing their new Galaxy, wait for it, S4 smartphone. This is the part where you go Oooo and Ahhh and start peeing yourself as you run out the door to buy your new phone.

New things are great and yes they even smell awesome, but what’s up with all these new phones being released every few months with minimal upgrades that hardly justify the release of an entirely new version.

Whether it be Apple, Samsung or, well, really just those two companies lately, this infatuation with “new” every few months induces just a tiny bit of vomit in my mouth every time the hype machine builds.

Not that I’m putting the Samsung Galaxy smartphone line of products down. I love my Galaxy S2 and it does everything I need it to do. I don’t need to go buy a new one every few months when a new version comes up for sale. Nor could I even afford to.

And what does the Galaxy S4 have that my S2 doesn’t? Bigger screen? High pixel camera? If only you could see the hand jerking motion I’m making with my fist.

No, I will not go out and get me a new S4 because my S2 is still awesome and does what I need it to do. When it breaks then yes I will go out and get me a new phone. By then I’m sure the S4 will be obsolete by geek standards and the S10 will be the newest and greatest thing since sliced bread. And then I’ll be talking shit about that version too.
