More surrealism

So I’m in a training course this afternoon. And the guy in front of me is surfing the web on his tablet.

And I noticed what was on his screen…


Very, very wierd.  I doubt he even realized that I was behind him.

    It’s true! I was sitting next to Larry at the time.

    Actually the meeting is still going on (maybe we should be paying more attention to it…)

  2. Hey, it was your idea to blog this 🙂

    So did the guy in front notice the updated blog and look behind to find you?

    That is really cool, and weird at the same time.

    I wonder if he did see it update. How weird is that.

    "Oh, Larry just published a new entry. Who’s the idiot that doesn’t see Larry Osterman sitting behind him".

    Hey it’s even more weird – it was me with my tablet and I knew (channel9 video) that you were behind me!! -:)

  6. DonnyBoy,

    I wasn’t sure 🙂 As I said, it was very wierd.

    And you left before I could ask 🙂

    Btw, what’d you think of the class?

    Why can’t programmers spell? On purely evolutionary grounds I would have thought than an inability to see patterns of characters would decrease fitness in this field.

    Or is the defect associated with improved skills in other areas? [eg. diabetes ==> resistance to starvation, sickle-cell ==> resistance to malaria]

    Larry, you have a great blog of interesting low-level stuff. Perhaps there are others on this site, but hard-ish to find.

    You know I wonder how many people in Training Classes today turned around to see if you were behind them Larry.

    Programmers can’t spell because the compiler will point their misspells out. If you make a mistake you know it right away because your code won’t compile, so after while you stop paying attention to it.

    Ok. So how many people turned around and looked behind you after reading this? 🙂
