Re: Most useful/employable programming language?

I've never used it. I assume it's just C with some OO shit bolted on in a slightly less overloaded manner than C++? I haven't found a programming language I actually like as yet, I'm most familiar with C/C++ and Python but christ if I don't hate them all in their own ways. I wouldn't mind learning G...

Re: Most useful/employable programming language?

So I wound up going back to uni in 2012 and doing mechatronic engineering and am now a robotics engineer. I spend most of my days doing weird programming stuff in c++/python. I guess everything worked out!

Corded drills any good? I don't need to be away from a plug and there seems to be a pretty massive price difference. Nothing profesh, mostly just wood-screws and the like.

Re: Butthole Surfer Wins “Yard of the Month” Award in Austin

Shit, I'm getting some punkas FOMO. Since leaving NZ the prospect of ever being able to afford a house has receded further and further from view. Living in Sydney pretty much dooms that idea.
And I pretty much never go to gigs cause I'm lazy as shit.

Extremely face plan. I have a work mate who goes on about political correctness this, PC that. It grinds my gears. I think it was Bill Bailey who said "when I was a boy we called political correctness 'being polite'".

Tumblr's a great place for funny shit and some mid-tier social commentary but don't take it too seriously.

We've got one of these Hakko soldering stations at work and it's the best shit - http://au.element14.com/hakko/fx-888d/s ... dp/2280753
A bit expensive but I've repeatedly soldered tiny tiny 1mm or less wires without drama. I've used it for surface mount parts even.
