If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
About ten years into my career as a hardware/embedded software/systems developer I decided it would be good to understand what managers were supposed to know and got one of these MBA thingies through the UK Open Business School. The knowledge gained was useful and directly applicable to non-technical areas of projects that I was involved in.
When I received notification that I had gained the degree I went home and proudly announced that I had been awarded a MBA to which my eldest daughter (16 at the time) asked, "What does that stand for? Miserable Bloody A***hole?"
I've had a boss whose people skills would have been 10x better by even attempting to follow either graphic
That is the crazy paradox to it: The knowledge (even though it is so basic) that these types supposedly learn would be valuable if they actually used it.
No worries, though, they are impervious to good ideas.
I was being flippant, but with a serious point underneath. If you blindly include a large namespace like stdthat you don't have more than a passing acquaintance with, then you do run a greater risk of collisions.
Software rusts. Simon Stephenson, ca 1994. So does this signature. me, 2012
I found this band a while ago in some list with "metal albums that redefined the genre" or something like that.
The band has metal roots, but moved in another direction, so I'd argue that this album just isn't metal.
Bands like Sólstafir and even Sigur Rós come to mind while listening to this.
Anyway, Wikipedia sums it up nicely:
Kauan is an atmospheric doom metal/post-rock band from Chelyabinsk, Russia formed in 2005.
Kauan's name stems from the Finnish language, meaning for a long time, and many of the band's lyrics are in Finnish.
This song has something dreamy about it, from the piano intro to the high pitched female vocals and the wall of guitar that follows.
I can recommend the entire album, especially the last three tracks, of which this is the middle.
Amazing album and an amazing track!
Good old times!
Used to listen to them back in high school, to Thyrfing, Valdr Galga and Urkraft.
Even got Thyrfing and Urkraft on CD.
The last album I heard was Farsotstider, that one in particular takes me back to doing my newspaper round in the morning
