Almost. If they push that one through, do we go with Five for Fighting on 10/10?...
| Soccer Board|| Sergio Agüero's son, Benjamín, proving that genetics are totally real - Dijkstra on 4/11/14 at 7:44 pm|
It must be nice to have Grandpa Maradona to help become a legend when Papa Sergio isn't able to be there. Sergio is much more intelligent than I give him credit for. He has ties to Maradona forever, ...

What an absolutely beautiful goal!

| Soccer Board|| I was given the gift of America recently - Dijkstra on 9/1/13 at 2:00 pm|
I'm going to preface this with a premature "Cool Story Bro", but the story made receiving said gift even more exciting. I've been moving so this post is a few weeks late. I figured you guys would appreciate the photos at the very least. My birthday was recently, and with the move, I didn't have much...
| Tiger Rant|| Stats Don't Lie: LSU/Bama Stat Comparison - Dijkstra on 9/30/12 at 7:28 am|
I posted this in the prediction thread, but I feel like it needed its own post just to give a little dose of reality. Statistics don't lie. They don't always turn out to predict outcomes perfectly, but over 5 games, I think it's a good indicator as to how the season has gone so far. All I'm hearing ...
| O-T Lounge|| Adjusted GPA: What is the purpose? - Dijkstra on 5/25/12 at 7:57 pm|
What can you even use it for since a transcript can be obtained with all credits on it, nullifying the need for it? For instance, say I have a 3.5 cumulative, but a 3.9 adjusted, would that help me in any way?...
| Soccer Board|| Are there any clubs that you outwardly hate but enjoy watching? - Dijkstra on 5/3/12 at 12:38 pm|
An obvious answer to this one for me is Barcelona, but that's just because FIFA makes them unbearable.
The less obvious and more tough to admit is Manchester City. I hate them because I'm a United fan, and I hate them even more because they're successfully buying their way into contention, althou...

Is anyone in it and want to run some shit?...
| O-T Lounge|| If you could change one thing about Facebook/GMail chat... - Dijkstra on 2/21/12 at 12:53 pm|
What would it be?
While writing the code for the "Chat" system for a site, I've been a little split on what I'd like to change. I would like to have something a bit different in terms Since I know the OT is worth more than Zuckdawg, Gates, and Warren Buffett, I figured you guys would have the pe...
| Help Board|| TD.com Windows 8: Metro App - Dijkstra on 2/17/12 at 5:49 pm|
With the easy implementation of apps in Windows 8 through Blend, is the Cluckster planning on developing an easy to use app for it? It'd be incredibly easy to translate the user experience, and I think it'd bring TD.com just that much more of a great experience than any other site. I mean, hell, I'l...
| O-T Lounge|| MITx: Circuits. Who's trying it out? - Dijkstra on 2/16/12 at 7:54 pm|
It's a Circuits intro class at MIT taught online. If you pass, you get a certificate. Doesn't matter too much, but it'd be cool to have. I'd like to see who my "classmates" will be. ...
| O-T Lounge|| Has anyone gone to a "prestigious" grad school for their field? - Dijkstra on 2/1/12 at 10:36 am|
I'm looking into grad schools in SE/CS, and while I seem to have the requirements for the schools I'd like to attend, I know there's all sorts of other nonsense. With so many OT geniuses in the building, I figured I would ask what the process was like to get in. Also, what advice would you give to s...
| O-T Lounge|| Game of Nerds - Dijkstra on 1/30/12 at 11:19 am|
Anyone else play this game? It has absorbed my life in the small amount of off time I have. It's basically a fast paced browser trivia game for experts who consider themselves "experts" in any certain topic. You get 5 team members who "help" you base...
| O-T Lounge|| What's Your Favorite Programming Language? - Dijkstra on 11/9/11 at 3:12 pm|
and on the flipside, which language do you hate?
I'm a pretty plain guy. C++ is where I make the magic happen so I'm incredibly partial to it. I also think Ruby is phenomenal.
On the other hand, I can't stand Objective-C. I think it's vastly inferior to C++, isn't as efficient, and doesn't hav...
| O-T Lounge|| Is Linux Ready For The Mainstream? - Dijkstra on 11/4/11 at 3:18 pm|
As an offshoot of the Gates/Jobs thread from yesterday and a bit of an issue last night/today with hardware drivers, do you think any Linux distros are ready for mainstream usage?
Honestly, as much as I want to champion open-source and free software, I can't say that I think the Average Joe would...
| O-T Lounge|| Which Field Of Science Do You Find Most Interesting? - Dijkstra on 9/26/11 at 12:54 pm|
This one's for the nerds. I study a good bit of physics, and I've noticed that, one of my buddies and I included, most students of physics find chemistry and biology to be horrendous and boring, while most of the chemistry and biology students find physics to be terrible. Do you have any science pre...

A week or two ago, my roommate and I were shopping for Saints gear for our NOLA themed sports room, and we decided to go see if Champs Sports had some cheaper jerseys. In the store was a clearance rack of mostly Chris Paul jerseys. They were bargain basement prices and legitimately $80 and $85. We ...

[quote]Throughout the two-minute postgame analysis, the severely brain-damaged dimwit talked very loudly and drew a number of foolish conclusions based on a game that was large...

I just got back home from Bonnaroo, and I was hoping to hear about everyone's experiences. I had a great time. We met a ton of extremely nice people, and overall, the crowds were pleasant. Might have been the excess Molly.
- Line-up: The bands playing were phenomenal. The...
