Some time next month I plan to have a water bottle “pressed” with a custom logo on it. Part of the logo might contain a quote. I would like it to look great.
What is a beautiful font for printed quotes?
I heard this joke a long time ago and somehow it never gets old, especially when the person telling the joke turns things around a bit.
His recipe is a classic; his sense of humor is hard to resist:

On my last project we had a lot of meetings that included “fluff”. This is not unique, especially in IT. What was different, though, was that every lead developer was expected to perform three-letter-acronym loaded monologues, nearly on a daily basis. On one particular afternoon I felt like I had really gone overboard. While the subject matter gave me little leeway in the speech that I could craft; I still I could barely believe what I had said, and wondered if anyone else felt the same way. I decided to ask one of my friends in the same meeting what he thought, over IM. Here is the conversation that followed:
Me: did you think that was absurd what I said?
Him: sorry, but kind of 🙂
Me: what would you have said?
Him: same thing 😀
Me: (rofl) I KNEW IT
Here is an article about how a Java programmer can’t wrap his mind around the fact that Rich Hickey doesn’t do TDD even though all of said programmer’s friends agree that TDD is the best thing ever.
If somehow all programmers were to read this article, and follow its advice by aspiring to the gold standard of cover letters (for their company at least), it would be good for all of them, but it would surely create a DOS attack of sorts for the hiring managers!
