RPC handshakes and mbuf corruption;multi-threaded with task list interruptions.All of the pain that a core file brings;These are a few of my least favorite things...
So, yeah, work is really worky this week, and my posting schedule (what there is of it) has suffered. To make up for it, here's a bunch o' linkage for yinz guys.
- Over at The Smallest Minority, Kevin has no Faith in Government. According to recent polls, that puts him well into the majority.
- At Sharp as Marble, Robb Allen expounds on just one of the reasons that you shouldn't be sleeping soundly at night. I say this is one reason you shouldn't have faith in the government, either. Wait, no - make that two reasons. Um. Or maybe three reasons? Wait - four? Man. You know what? Never mind. Just go read his blog.
- Neo-Neocon points out that the presidency actually requires some skills. I'm pretty sure she means "some skills other than continuous campaigning, fund raising and playing golf."
- Larry Correia has posted The Internet Arguing Checklist. Learn how to give ammo to the people already on your side! Convince the undecided! Allow your opponents to display their petty ignorance to the world!
- Speaking of argument ammo, College Insurrection points to a Harvard (yes, that Harvard) study that shows gun control doesn't work.
- Via Questions and Observations, you can find Andrew Klavan explaining the progressive's version of the IAC: "Shut up!"
- House of Eratosthenes points out an alternate strategy employed by global warming advocates: never start a discussion, just declare that debate is useless.
- Robb Allen (there he is again... seriously, guys just go read his blog!) points out that the progressive argument for gun control is specifically based on emotion as opposed to logic.
- Not to be left out, Aaron Ross Powell has a handy pointer on How Not To Argue Against Libertarianism. Well, really, it's got some good points on how to not argue against anything, really. Starting off with not misconstruing your opponent's positions in order to knock down a strawman. I guess there are some people who need to be told that's not a valid debate tactic?
Plenty of good stuff in there, right?
Now go read your Robb Allen.
