Lot of drama in those days, including constant efforts to force the "Reflections on Trusting Trust" guy into retirement so we could stop being so paranoid about compilers.

#1988663 Pokémon Go FAQ, Help, & Showing off your Catches!

Posted by Hydrogen on 01 August 2016 - 06:39 AM

Fun fact for you all, @Hydrogen actually had an idea for a geo-Pokemon type game back in 2012, I remember discussing it with him in IRC. :p Don't think he ever actually did anything about it though, he could have been rich! I even predicted some of the criticisms:


[22:36] <fsareshwala> WaserLave: a mobile pets site is exactly what i was thinking
[22:36] <fsareshwala> imagine pokemon but on a mobile app
[22:36] <fsareshwala> depending on your location, you can find different monsters


[22:37] <@WaserLave> so like pokemon mixed with geocaching?
[22:37] <fsareshwala> yeah


[22:37] <fsareshwala> and if your pokemon gets hurt in a battle, you take it to real locations
[22:37] <fsareshwala> like the local pharmacy
[22:37] <fsareshwala> to be able to buy various items
[22:37] <fsareshwala> you can find others who play the game and battle them
[22:37] <fsareshwala> shit like that


[22:41] <@WaserLave> be careful with the privacy aspects too ;)
[22:41] <fsareshwala> :p
[22:41] <@WaserLave> don't want paedophiles downloading it and tracking kids :p

Bah :angry


Should have done something about it. Ideas are worth a dime a dozen ... I had been thinking about that idea for a while since then. I had no execution though :(

For obvious reasons, the prize is awarded at a different time of year from the others, while it's still fresh in the committee's memory.

'List of helicopter prison escapes' and 'List of sexually active popes' are both entertainingly long, but sadly there's no 'List of helicopter prison escapes involving sexually active popes.'

#1949057 [xkcd] Insanity

Posted by Hydrogen on 17 March 2016 - 08:00 PM

I looked up "insanity" in like 10 different dictionaries and none of them said anything like that. Neither did the DSM-4. But I'll keep looking. Maybe it's in the DSM-5!
