Re: What's your job?

Software/coding. Currently I'm an engineering manager with fancy title "director of engineering" but it's basically mid-level management.

Re: Beard oil

That image rotation looks like sorcery, but apparently it's from a buggy/non-standard Orientation implementation:

Re: When you don't give up.

The domain name for RLC is expiring this April. Would renewing the domain count as a new comic?

Re: Beard oil

I don't have a beard anymore. manliness--

When I had one, it was pretty straight and easy. Never felt like I needed to oil it.

Or uninstall Chrome and just use extra-verbose curl for everything, so you may read -- nay, so you may CHERISH -- the certificate info with every request.

Re: Latest movies mega-thread

I was in a semi-comatose state in front of the TV a few nights ago watching HBO. "Gods of Egypt" came on. And I was in such a tired state I decided I would watch the first few minutes, yknow, for a laugh. How bad could it be? But within like 5 minutes... IS THAT JAIME FUCKING LANNISTER? (I turned it...

Re: The second amendment

Yeah, I understand how easy it is to print or just manufacture the parts you need. But let's say you have a population of 100 people that want to commit mass murder. Some of them will have the access or technical capability to 3d print or otherwise manufacture the parts. Some won't, they won't know ...

Re: The second amendment

There's a wall on the side facing Las Vegas Blvd. I don't know if a semi could get through and honestly I don't really want to think about it. The comparison that keeps popping into mind is the 2nd battle of Fallujah, which was some of the fiercest fighting in the Iraq War. Over the first week, we l...

Re: The second amendment

Yeah, this society is sick beyond belief. What drives somebody to do this? I have no idea. Would the death toll have been any lower had he bought/rented/stolen a semi and simply driven through the crowd? Yes, because there are walls around the concert grounds. In other words, the government sees an ...

Re: The second amendment

Oh, look, another worst-mass-shooting-in-US-history. I'm sure if only those concert-goers were sufficiently armed, they would have quickly turned around and shot that bastard out of the 32nd story window at 500+ yards. After all the only thing that stops a bad guy with 23 guns is a... hmm. AR-15s, 7...
