in reply to Top goal for the coming new year

Gotta be the Uber-Coder thing. Certainly not going to worry about the lottery thing, given the fact that you actually have a better chance of being struck by lightning every day for a week. I see the real quest being to become Das Uber Coder. Then I plan to finally get around to inventing that programming language that does what I mean rather than what I type. Then that neural input jack so I can plug my head into my computer. Not sure what the fiancé will have to say about that cranial jack.....maybe if I just explain to her that it'll make it so I absolutely RULE at Rune and Half-Life.

    I never considered Half-Life that important to be good at ;)

    Actually you have a better chance of being bitten by a monkey than of winning the lottery.

[zentara]: marto arn't those NSA secrets? :-)
[marto]: not if you keep telling people :P
[zentara]: I had to disable hyperthreading on my machine because of that.
[Discipulus]: thanks marto but... at the moment this seems a bit beyond my faculties.. ;=)
[zentara]: a thread goes into a wait state after emitting a wait to all other threads. It locks up a machine completely.
[marto]: if you mean the recent hyperthreading bug, I don't think that's NSA related?
[zentara]: s/thread/cpu/
[marto]: xkcd://538
[Discipulus]: these opcodes mentioned in the wiki pages are the same opcode perl is translated into? or is just the same term but in different fields?
[zentara]: it's useful if you want to lockup a multicore machine :-)
