    @carbon_compound Oh, you HAD to go there, didn't you? Well, don't blame me. http://amzn.to/1BshANG @ludolphus @schmidt_fu

      Just got an email apologizing for an inadvertent email and inbox clutter. Who says irony is dead?

        @ludolphus I use a "Notes" file for thoughts. Sometimes rather copious. I find it a useful way to think things through (the act of typing slows down my brain just enough). I rarely re-read the notes, though.

          @ludolphus People still use paper?

            @0xmf I know UNIX is my IDE of choice. tmux with one window running emacs and another a shell (and maybe a couple others running various things).

              Okay, all you software (and other) entomologists, this week's #WedC theme is: bugs

                      @nitinkhanna More to the point, is there any organism/plant that's scientific name IS it's common name? Homo sapiens?

                          @nitinkhanna Only way it would be "a " is if it's pronounced "Youber", or maybe 'U'-ber. But I don't see why it wouldn't be pronounced oo-ber.

                            @matigo You can. It was in sore need of some serious editing, so I don't care for it as much as some of the others. @thedadams

                              @thedadams You can rent the Star Trek movies from Amazon (and probably others, like Google and Apple). Star Wars Despecialized is only available via bittorrent. The "new versions" of Star Wars are probably available for rent as well from various sources.

                                @thedadams For Star Wars, I'd recommend the "despecialized" version. After watching the original trilogy that way, you can do prequel (but don't waste time on the first). For Star Trek, I'd probably skip 1 and 5 but watch the rest. They're on Netflix.
