    Window Change: Zay Muv't My Chisa!

    What Windows developers have known as the Windows API has changed with the advent of the Windows 8 operating system. This is unsettling.

    Having been a Windows developer for a long time, through this written article, I express my consternation. I bring to your mind the same bizarre imagery that I have dreamt of in relation to this development. You’re probably about to read a specimen of absurdism and the finest grade of literary nonsense you might ever lay your eyes on.

    If you're less inclined to reading, you may listen to the audio. The entire article has been recorded in audio and it is made available free of charge (mp3).

    I must admit I didn't actually read it (yet), but somehow I doubt it'll beat, say, Samuel Becket...

    I was thrown out of college for cheating on the metaphysics exam; I looked into the soul of the boy sitting next to me.

    This is a snakeskin jacket! And for me it's a symbol of my individuality, and my belief... in personal freedom.

    Spamming like that usually make me just mark the threads as read but, for some odd reason, this time I opened one of them.
    I closed the window after just a few paragraphs though...
    Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place.
    Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by
    definition, not smart enough to debug it.

    Please pass judgement about it only after you've read it.
