    Mmmm.... Remoulade.... Must dig out recipe... ahh, here it is:

    Lærebog i Huslig Økonomi:
    Remoulade: Lav en mayonnaise, kom hakket syltet agurk el. asie og persille i. Smag til med karry og sennep. Kan forfines med flødeskum.

    A couple comments:

    • Those Top Secret and Unclassified stickers are legit. I wouldn't use the TS stickers on anything; law enforcement might not get the joke. Using them in pairs won't help; highest restriction level wins.

    • The iPod Shuffle is a couple generations ago. I remember it because I have one and it was the last time they offered a Shuffle in purple.

  • Mike D. (unregistered) in reply to frits

    Wow, several bugs in that chart. The ones I'm seeing:

    • Java was based on C, not C++. The language creators were very clear about this.
    • Python coming from Perl? Python is more related to C or C++. It shares almost no syntax with Perl.
    • I think PL/1 is supposed to be on there around BCPL.

    Though it has MUMPS. Bravo.

    Wasn't Java a refinement and outgrowth of Oak?

  • Design Pattern (unregistered)

    Java also has borrowed a lot from Smalltalk (single inheritance, VM, garbage collection).

    In what way is Scheme based on Smalltalk?

    From the diagram it appears it's closer to Smalltalk than to Lisp. In fact it is a prominent member of the Lisp-family.

    Hey, don't insult Leverage, that's one of my favorite shows!

    And yeah, I vaguely recall having heard somewhere (possibly it was here?) that absolutely anything that has a legitimate "top secret" tag on it is by law required to be treated as though it actually was, just in case. Which means it would be an excellent prank, running around sticking it on things at random at the public section of your local CIA headquarters. Until they shoot you.

    And finally, "singing the praises of OS X", as in singing them? That does sound like a fun job. What sorts of songs did they sing?

    I'm not too sure about the involvement of VB. I think C# is mostly the result of a coupling between Java and C++, which makes for quite an incestous offspring. Furthering the hillfolk-like realtionships is the subsequent mating of C# and Java in each new generation of the Java programming language.

    In Cliff Stoll's book The Cuckoo's Egg, he describes the experience of finding some TOP SECRET and CLASSIFIED rubber stamps during a brief visit to CIA headquarters. He stamped them on some blank pieces of paper because he thought they looked cool, and then got hassled at length by the CIA's security people when he tried to take the papers out of the building.

    The infraNT IT1008 is an 8 channel SATA chip for interfacing computers to mass memory storage. The device is apparently used by these guys: http://www.readynas.com/.

    that chip is a network service processor. Have fun building anything with it, soldering ballgrid array packages is not for mere mortals... best left to an IR reflow machine.

    I'd love to know where I can get some of those top secret stickers or stamps. I would put them on entire reams of blank paper in case I ever got raided by the FBI.

    You must not know what apathy means. Or you don't know what "Who cares?" means.
    Say that's an interesting conclusion you arrived at there. It was certainly very creative, even if completely irrational. Let me sum up for you what I was actually saying:

    Given: "who cares?" = apathy "blah blah do their own Google search blah" = initiative

    You suggested: "who cares?" = "blah blah do their own Google search blah"

    Which would imply: apathy = initiative

    My response: "ERROR: does not compute"

  • Derek G (unregistered)

    Woo, my stuff got posted! Loving the mug, and I've gotten some fun comments on the stickers.

    Yes, the Infrant NSP chip used to be the core of the ReadyNAS products, replaced by Intel stuff later.

    Alex, can you get a pic of the back of the 'Oxygen Bar' thing, I believe it had some Engrish stuff on it which was weird, which is why I saved it for you :)

    I've got a friend who solders those with a skillet. The trick is to put all the reflow-needing parts on one side.

    That said, the multi-layer PCBs needed to use those chips aren't cheap in small quantities.

    The Evolution of Programming languages, if you bother to read the intro on it's page, notably posted in 2006, tells us:

    Both the selection of what constitutes a “major” programming language and which languages influenced which were determined by Wikipedia and are limited in their accuracy by the articles there on the various languages.

    Explains why some links seem odd, while some languages aren't listed.

    Remoulade is absolutely fantastic with french fries, sausages, hot dogs and/or most types of fried fish. I have no idea why someone would put in whipped cream though...:S
