a glimpse into cryptic thought of the reticence
They took everything about me and put it into a computer where they created a model of my mind. Yes! Using that model, they managed to generate every thought I could possibly have in the next ten years, which they then filtered through a probability matrix of some kind… to determine everything I was gonna do in that period.
Python uses whitespace indentation, rather than curly braces or keywords, to delimit blocks (a feature also known as the off-side rule).
I dreamt I was a programmer, and the boss sat right next to me. Because I can’t code, I typed gibberish all day, but properly indented it.
Life’s a mess, dude, but we’re all just doing the best we can, you know. So, if I hurt you or if I lied to you, all I can tell you is I’m sorry, and I will try to do better. Maybe I will do better or maybe I’ll do even worse. I don’t know. I screw up all the time because that’s what people do, you know?
Jeff, Who Lives at Home:
It’s funny. The first time you watch it, it’s hard to understand what it’s about. It just sort of meanders. And then, everything comes together in this one perfect moment at the end. And when you watch it a second or a third or a fourth time, you start to see that all of this randomness is leading towards a perfect moment.
Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

Launchpad: If you don’t understand how typing the name of an application into a search box can be so much more difficult than clicking an icon in the Dock, I suggest that you have not spent enough time with novice users. Such users often don’t even know the name of the application they want—or if they do, they don’t know how to spell it.
Process model: “It doesn’t matter if an application is running or not. You shouldn’t care. Stop thinking about it.”
Internals: If this is your first time reading an Ars Technica review of Mac OS X and you’ve made it this far, be warned: this section will be even more esoteric than the ones you’ve already read.
