Meth lab found inside Walmart restroom in Indiana

MUNCIE, Ind. — Police found a meth lab inside a Walmart restroom in Muncie, Ind., on Thursday night.

Employees called police at about 11:30 p.m. after discovering a suspicious backpack in the men’s restroom, according to WXIN. When troopers arrived, they found an active meth lab inside the backpack.

Investigators dismantled the lab and removed the chemicals from the store.

Police said the men’s and women’s restrooms would have to be thoroughly decontaminated before being reopened to customers.

Investigators are still working to identify the person who left the backpack inside the restroom.

Portable meth labs were all the rage back home in the early 1990s. Peeps be leaving trash bags along the country roads.

800 pounds of stingray

tcr! · Mar 13, 2015 at 1:48 pm

Giant 14ft, 800lb stingray is biggest freshwater fish caught with rod

A stingray weighing nearly 800lb has become the largest freshwater fish ever caught by rod and line.

The gigantic flat fish, which was 8ft wide and 14ft long, took nearly two hours to reel in.

It was caught by American TV nature conservationist Jeff Corwin on the Mae Klong river in Thailand earlier this week.

City of St. Charles: Send out the street cleaners.
Me: It’s rush hour, you twit.

Colonial Cafe: Change the marquee to “Lobster Mac n Cheese”
Me: For breakfast? Another twit.

Work Landlord: Put dumpsters at the end of the parking lot so he sees them every time he looks out the window. And make sure trash is hanging out.
Me: It’s FINE, I’ll look at them.

dumpster out the window

Some days, peeps, I’m just not feeling it.

Happy Friday the 13th — get your machete on.

It could be worse though — at least my window opens.

I remember when I worked at MSFT none of them opened. I asked somebody why they didn’t and he said, “Bad idea, everybody would jump.”

Feist live on a city bus

tcr! · Mar 12, 2015 at 3:50 pm

Peeps, I normally don’t like this genre but I do love everything about this.

I feel it all, I feel it all, I feel it all, I feel it all
The wings are wide, the wings are wide
Wild card inside, wild card inside

Ooh, I’ll be the one who’ll break my heart
I’ll be the one to hold the gun

I know more than I knew before
I know more than I knew before
I didn’t rest, I didn’t stop
Did we fight or did we talk?

Ooh, I’ll be the one who’ll break my heart
I’ll be the one to hold the gun

I love you more, I love you more
I don’t know what I knew before
But now I know I wanna win the war

No one likes to take a test
Sometimes you know more is less
Put your weight against the door
Kick drum on the basement floor

Stranded in the fog of words
Loved him like the winter bird
On my head the water pours
Gulf stream through the open door
Fly away, fly away to what you wanna make

I feel it all, I feel it all, I feel it all, I feel it all
The wings are wide, the wings are wide
Wild card inside, wild card inside

Ooh, I’ll be the one to break my heart
I’ll be the one who’ll break my heart
I’ll be the one who’ll break my heart
I’ll end it, though you started it

The truth lies
The truth lied
No one knows

And lies divide
Lies divide

Who lies on sheets of ice? Who pays 4 paradise? After the reign-after the rain. Who took the gold from their’ teeth? Who takes the ancient masterpiece? After the rain-after the reign…I always wondered how AC spelled that cause n verses it sounds like Nazi shenanigans but the chorus sound like raining-think it was about both craftily intertwined.

I cannot stand it when my finger nails are uneven and will file them until they are.
DON’T TELL ME THAT I’M THE ONLY ONE.

Distributed Source Control Management is bullshit

tcr! · Mar 11, 2015 at 3:23 pm

Unorthodocs: Abandon your DVCS and Return to Sanity

To me, the arrival of Git and Mercurial was a godsend, not because it was radically different than what I was used to, but because it finally meant that I had a sufficiently advanced general-purpose DVCS that I at last could cleanse the ground with the blood of my enemies obliterate the use of Subversion, CVS, that thingie that Microsoft made before TFS, and anything else that might cross my path, and replace them with Mercurial (or, in a truly desperate situation, Git) goodness. Hell, I built a whole product centralized around making DVCSes easy and simple to use, and then went on the lecture circuit explaining how to best use them in your workflow.

This man has the creds, now listen up as he hits the high points of working with a distributed source control management tool.

Let me tell you something. Of all the time I have ever used DVCSes, over the last twenty years […] I have wanted to have the full history while offline a grand total of maybe about six times. And this is merely going down over time as bandwidth gets ever more readily available. If you work as a field tech, or on a space station, or in a submarine or something, then okay, sure, this is a huge feature for you. But for the rest of us, I am going to assert that this is not the use case you need to optimize for when choosing a VCS.

I rolled my eyes the first time another developer told me that Git was so cool because he had the whole repo, history and all, for our one of projects. I could care less about the whole repo. I want the trunk because I’m building something that I want to ship as soon as fucking possible. I don’t care about some bullshit somebody changed six months ago.

Take blobs (a.k.a. binary assets). Blobs are a part of most programs. You need images. You need audio. You need 3D meshes. You need to bundle a ton of fonts, because Android has like three of them, none of which happen to be Wingdings. These are large, opaque files that, while not code, are nevertheless an integral part of your program, and need to be versioned alongside the code if you want to have a meaningful representation of what it takes to build your program at any given point.

That’s fine for a centralized system. You only have one copy at any give point, so the amount of disk space you need is basically the size of the current (or target) version of the repository—not the whole thing. We don’t really need to care about how the history is stored.

With a DVCS, though, we have a problem. You do have the whole history at any given point, which in turn means you need to have every version of every blob. But because blobs are usually compressed already, they usually don’t compress or diff well at all, and because they tend to be large, this means that your repository can bloat to really huge sizes really fast.

Again with the obese repo sizes. The first Git project I worked on, Github told me that my .sql file was too large when I went to push. Being new to Git, it took me the better part of an hour to get it out of the repository. That particular project is almost a gig — for one website.

I see this workflow done for the tiniest of tiny projects on the grounds that “it makes things easier”. Yet I watch OpenBSD, an entire freaking operating system, get by just fine with CVS—CVS—and patch bombs.

At work I’m constantly being bombarded with “latest buzzword” that we need to incorporate into our development models and work flows. “Everybody else is moving to this, we need to do the same” bullshit. “We need to switch our MySQL deployments to MongoDB so they’ll scale” — shit like that pretty much every day.

If it’s not going to help us ship this fucking project tomorrow, if it doesn’t make my life easier — to hell with it. Stay the fuck outta my way fanboi, I’ve got billable, production work to do.

Anyways… For everything source control, I’m just fine with Subversion.

iTunes, you never fail to irritate me

itunes you never fail to irritate me

Along with the regular Sign In prompts, this new one has punched me, over…and…over today. It’s almost like they don’t want people to use it.

And I wouldn’t if it weren’t for iTunes Match that syncs everything to my iPhone auto-magically. That actually does work — my playlists, music, etc. all just work on my iPhone and I don’t have to do anything.

But I tell ya, the hell that is iTunes Store.
