“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken”

I don’t know why, but lately I’ve stopped blogging. I usually don’t have enough ideas or content for a complete blog post, but mostly small things. One of those small things are quotes.

I don’t want to crowd this blog with quotes, so I’m using tumblr for that: My quotes

Some of them:

If you think you are too small to be effective, you have never been in bed with a mosquito.” -Betty Reese

A ship is safe in the harbor, but that is not what ships were built for.

Whenever there is a hard job to be done I assign it to a lazy man; he is sure to find an easy way of doing it.” -Walter Chrysler

LQTM

From Urban Dictionary‘s word of the day:

Laughing quietly to myself.” A more accurate representation of the human response to funny things seen on the interweb.

When people type lol, rarely are they laughing aloud for the whole world to hear, but merely smiling and laughing quietly to themselves.

[QOTD] SHM vs. Pipes

Heard today in a MySQL course

What are the differences between shared memory and NT pipes on Windows?

Slow and slower

It seems quite silly written here, but it’s been a funny moment.

I love cool companies

Well, actually what I love is that small embedded jokes that bring that smile at the end of the day, like the Qt Blog, which has this pearl as slogan:

The blog where it’s OK to feed the Trolls

For those of you who need some context, the company behind Qt is called trolltech. If you still don’t get it try searching for don’t feed the troll

The power of Apple brand

I think this resumes all the strength of the Apple brand:

The biggest letdown is the fact that the iPhone won’t be available until June 2007 in the U.S. They have so much horsepower and untested software packed into this tiny device that the first version will almost certainly have problems – overheating, bugs, etc. That won’t stop millions from buying it as soon as it is available. And it won’t stop me, either.

I think this kids’ letters to god are just lovely

Dear God,
Please put another holiday between Christmas and Easter. There is nothing good in there now.
Ginny

Dear God,
Maybe Cain and Abel would not kill each other so much if they had their own rooms. It works with my brother.
Larry

Dear God,
I think the stapler is one of your greatest invention

Do it!

Make something happen today, before you go home, before the end of the week. Launch that idea, post that post, run that ad, call that customer. Go the edge, that edge you’ve been holding back from… and do it today. Without waiting for the committee or your boss or the market. Just go.
