Hmm, I made it into the stats page's undeserved master list. Fair enough, I pointed out my problems with it months ago myself. I think it's a fault with any popularity-based metric; very popular people can elevate others with a single vote. Funny this comes up around the same time as the Google scam discussion (another popularity metric). If you care, you can read my older diary entries.
Yesterday, I was out at dinner with a few friends when I was asked whether I ever meet any programmers outside of work. In all honesty, I think it's been 3 times total. I wind up talking more to writers or architecture professors or gallery owners. Of course, this was one of the reasons I moved here instead of San Francisco. I don't like talking shop much. And it's nice to be in the minority (and know it's not indirectly my fault that rents have become insane). I don't mind developers, but it seems that programmers are often a bit more narrowly focused that other people I meet. Of course, when I meet any people who could ONLY talk about abstract art or post-modern architecture, I find them boring too.
Find is such an incredibly useful command. I honestly don't know what I'd do without it sometimes. Now it's helping me to clean up several gigs of month-old files on a disk. If it weren't for MKS Utilities, NT would be completely useless. Incidentally, I have become quite peeved at how NT crawls to a halt whenever there is any serious disk I/O. At least my UNIX systems get it right.
Enough random thoughts for now...
