This is a really interesting way of thinking about it and makes a lot of sense. It's also kind of sad. :(

Meet tup, a fast, file-based build system.

http://gittup.org/tup/

I was looking for automated build systems since I'm reading a C++ coding standards book and it recommends having an automated build system. Makes sense, I don't think everyone goes around writing custom make files for every one of their projects. Apparently this one is supposed to be really good and fast. The documentation is also really funny. I can't wait to check it out.

Interesting read. I never knew so many people had parent problems. I also didn't realize how common it was to be guilty about estranged relationships.

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/08/02/business/a-company-copes-with-backlash-against-the-raise-that-roared.html?smid=fb-nytimes&smtyp=cur&_r=0

I was just thinking about salaries in small companies the other day. It's interesting to see what would actually happened if someone made all salaries equal. Just about exactly what you would think. It's interesting the toll it's taking on company revenue though. You can break the rules and make enemies, but you can't do both at the same time...

Maverick Hunter: The FPS

Interesting concept. It's a shame that Capcom can't seem to release any new interesting Mega Man IP. Hooray for bureacracy.
