Dunno if it’s original to Andy.
Of course, you can come up with something completely on your own and still have it happen that somebody else thought of it first. Witness “iPhad“.
… except that the Super Bowl actually happens.
So how come “The Rapture” is always supposed to be soon, like this year, next year, maybe five years out … and never, you know, 500 years out?
Even if it IS this Saturday, that still means that 1000 years ago it was 1000 years in the future. And yet I’m gonna guess that believers back then thought it was around the corner just like they do now.
Of course I’ve never studied the history of prophecies of the end of the world, so maybe there’re some out there that DO say we’re cool for another thousand years. See you then. (Except that I’ll be dead, of course. 🙂
Problem: Editor creates “backup” files. Solution: create a script to find all “*.bak” files and delete them. Run it manually whenever appropriate.
Problem: Files are too big. Solution: Use the “split” command to split them into 10k line chunks. Files are big enough that the “split” default (foo => foo.aa, foo.ab, etc) needs to be changed to a 3 character extension, thus foo => foo.aaa, foo.aab, etc.
Solutions collide: foo.bak gets deleted the next time I clean up my backup files. Oops.
What’s a good plural noun meaning “my iPhone and my iPad”? I like “my iPhads”. 🙂
I made this up myself. But Googling it reveals that I’m far from the first with this idea. Bummer. But not surprising.
