16:49:50 <ToApolytoXaos> ChrisWarrick: I've just read your comment on eevee's answer to Zed's post. I have read it myself and just confirmed my initial opinion about him
16:50:14 <ChrisWarrick> ToApolytoXaos: http://ralsina.me/weblog/posts/am-i-a-dickhead-you-be-the-judge.html

16:50:44 <ToApolytoXaos> lol let me get a beverage and read this
16:51:05 <ralsina> I had forgotten I wrote about that crap! I don't even remember the details.
16:57:04 <ToApolytoXaos> ...I'm just speechless ChrisWarrick 
16:57:18 <ChrisWarrick> Zed Shaw is a moron best ignored
16:57:25 <ToApolytoXaos> yeah, I read Zed's post and eevee's reply
16:57:38 <ToApolytoXaos> I didn't like him when I first saw a video of his
16:57:43 <ralsina> He's clueless about his own ignorance. He's the Scott Adams of software development.
16:57:45 <ToApolytoXaos> he was cursing and dissing for no reason
16:58:17 <ToApolytoXaos> you mean the Dilbert creator?
16:58:24 <ralsina> Yep
16:58:33 <ToApolytoXaos> but Dilbert it's funny lol
16:58:50 <ralsina> Wellllll it's sort of funny if you don't think about it ;-)
16:59:09 <ToApolytoXaos> you mean for not using actual cases?
16:59:34 <ralsina> No, I mean that in most cases the "fun" is based on meanness
16:59:46 <ToApolytoXaos> yeah, but that's the fun part lol
17:00:02 <ToApolytoXaos> in reality most of the jokes are applicable to certain countries
17:00:12 <ToApolytoXaos> many, for instance, are applicable in my country
17:00:21 <ralsina> Like, "let's make a character say something stupid, then another character be mean about it in a chickenshit way"
17:01:06 <ralsina> And then you one sad day read Scott Adams' blog, and realize he actually *is* just that mean and chickenshit, and he writes Dilbert straightup.
17:01:24 <ralsina> Literally, Scott Adams is not in on the joke when he writes Dilbert.
17:01:49 <ralsina> Just like we can laugh at what Zed writes, because it *is* a joke, but he's being serious.
17:02:50 <ToApolytoXaos> well, Zed is in my no-no list for years now
17:03:01 <ToApolytoXaos> as I have said, I have tried to read his book and didn't like it at all
17:03:11 <ToApolytoXaos> also he says in his website that he swears a lot
17:03:15 <ChrisWarrick> The one with 1/4 print "stupid shit" lessons?
17:03:17 <ralsina> Well, so do I
17:03:26 <ToApolytoXaos> and brags about it
17:03:27 <ralsina> swear a lot, I mean
17:03:36 <ToApolytoXaos> you swear?
17:03:43 <ToApolytoXaos> naughty NAUGHTY man!
17:03:45 <ralsina> Totally. All the time.
17:03:53 <ToApolytoXaos> open up your mouth to wash it with soap lol
17:04:17 <ralsina> I have accidentally sweared (sworn?) when giving a talk in front of 6, 700 people.
17:04:24 <ralsina> 600 or 700, not 6700
17:04:27 <ToApolytoXaos> oh damn O.o
17:04:32 <ToApolytoXaos> that's my greatest fear to be honest
17:04:50 <ralsina> No problem, I just said "oops, sorry, I'll wash my mouth with soap later"
17:04:59 <ToApolytoXaos> hahaha :D
17:05:00 <ToApolytoXaos> cool
17:05:05 <ralsina> "let me know if I do it again"
17:05:36 <ralsina> I nowadays have a disclaimer in the 1st slide "If I speak too fast, shout SLOWER, if I curse, shout BAD ROBERTO"
17:05:52 <ToApolytoXaos> hahahaha
17:05:57 <ToApolytoXaos> that's AWESOM!
17:05:59 <ToApolytoXaos> *E
17:06:16 <ToApolytoXaos> both in English and Spanish?
17:06:26 <ralsina> Well, in the language I am speaking
17:06:32 <ralsina> I tend to curse less in english
17:06:42 <ToApolytoXaos> then do your presentations in English
17:07:04 <ralsina> nah, I usually do them in argentina, doing them in english would be weird
17:07:12 <ToApolytoXaos> ah okay
17:15:04 <ralsina> Then again, my "technical talks" tend to devolve into this: https://www.flickr.com/photos/blmurch/3894993527/
17:18:31 <ToApolytoXaos> what did you tell them and laughed? :D
17:19:34 <ToApolytoXaos> finally, more women are getting involved with technology!
17:20:36 <ToApolytoXaos> I have had a hard time to convinced many female students of ours back in my previous job to stay in Computer Science
17:20:45 <ralsina> that was 2009, there were like 6 women attending. Last year it was around 35%, same conference.
17:20:55 <ToApolytoXaos> very nice
17:21:18 <ralsina> I was explaining how to implement Norvig's spellchecker. In a lightning talk. And then my computer turned itself off :-)
17:21:45 <ralsina> So, I finished the explanation using hand gestures and interpretative dance (not really)
17:21:48 <ToApolytoXaos> lol! run out of battery?
17:22:08 <ralsina> yeah, 2009 2 hours of battery was a lot ;-)
17:22:13 <ToApolytoXaos> true :/
17:22:50 <ToApolytoXaos> now there are all these gadgets you can carry with you to recharge my smart devices, let alone your laptop
17:23:15 <ralsina> my laptop has ~9 hour battery life, so if I run out now I deserve it :-)
17:23:39 <ToApolytoXaos> it must be a new model, like 1.5-2 years old
17:23:46 <ralsina> yes, 1 year old
17:23:49 <ralsina> Asus ux305
17:23:54 <ToApolytoXaos> nice
17:23:59 <ralsina> and cheap!
17:24:03 <ToApolytoXaos> for some reason, I dislike laptops :/
17:25:33 <ralsina> We got a bunch of news.ycombinator.com referrers in getnikola.com but of course who knows what sent them there
17:27:41 <ralsina> Ah, here https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=13021722
17:30:26 <ToApolytoXaos> I would like to see the largest Nikola website that exists out there :/
17:30:53 <ToApolytoXaos> I have seen a couple of Jekyll and Hugo, but haven't had the privilege to see Nikoa
17:30:56 <ToApolytoXaos> *Nikola
17:31:25 <ralsina> largest as in content? Probably mine
17:31:35 <ralsina> largest as in number of users, no idea
17:33:01 <ToApolytoXaos> in traffic
17:33:10 <ToApolytoXaos> and in content
17:33:31 <ralsina> ok, content ralsina.me I am willing to bet money on it
17:34:23 <ToApolytoXaos> cool
17:40:17 <ToApolytoXaos> I should start thoroughly how Nikola themes are built
17:40:35 <ToApolytoXaos> I would like to build one that looks and behaves like a WP blog
