The developers group exists out of the box in each Everything installation. It serves as the owner of certain infrastructural nodes, but otherwise is unused. Its only member is root — a special user which, like the developers group, automatically exists in Everything. root has been used by the gods in the past to perform certain privileged operations, but nowadays it is essentially unused, as anything root can do, a god can do.

[Corion]: I guess I should not read some discussions on HackerNews - the crowd there is weirdly different - "you have to stay current in tech" (by following all the latest JS trends) is a meme there, but it doesn't really match my experience
[Corion]: At least in my area, experience can beat most new tech anyway because most new tech is just a rehash of things abandoned in the 70s and we still have a lot of that ;)
[Corion]: choroba: Ah, that will be next Friday for $work ;) Drinking enough water is key ;))
[Corion]: But then, maybe that's just my experience with things, and maybe Hacker News is just people much younger who haven't seen more than one tech cycle...
[choroba]: s/water/bear/ and s/enough/too much/
[choroba]: beer
[choroba]: oh ok
[marto]: I crashed the ScotLUG Christmas night, having never actually been to ScotLUG
[choroba]: Corion yeah, I probably already told you about how Bjarne Stroustrup was asked whether he still watched the new tech trends and what really impressed him
[choroba]: His reply was "I watch them, but I haven't been impressed in the last 10 years. There's been nothing new". That was 2 years ago :)
