08-12-2015 16:21:24 <asciilifeform> it is entirely possible for an old (to a point) man to shoot better, take more physical punishment, run faster, even - than disposable cannon fodder. to a point. but the one thing that doesn't grow back is...

22-09-2015 02:44:10 <asciilifeform> none of greenspun's cohort was thusly bathed for creating anything like a properly salable product that somebody, somewhere, actually ~wanted~
22-09-2015 02:37:46 <mircea_popescu> but if not - greenspun.
06-08-2015 21:57:06 <mircea_popescu> holy shit phillip greenspun actually runs windows 10 ?!
