PHP Programmer Vs. .NET Programmer

1st: could you please give me the code that you wrote that does this and that?
PHP Programmer: Sure, I'll send it to you right away, but be careful, as ..., and regrading ... etc.

1st: could you please give me the function you wrote that does this and that?
.NET Programmer: What?! I've spent a lot of time doing it, do you expect me just to give it to you? write your own code buddy.


Well, it's not only the PHP programmers (almost all the programmers that work on an open source platforms).

And there are exceptions regrading this situation, in both side. but I've specified here cause this is what happened in front of me.
What Era are these people still living in. like I'm asking you to give me the source of some great art. I don't need your stupid code, there are a lot of open source programmers who are willing to help (even some .Net Programmers)

Where have I been in the last 6 months (maybe more)

I was watching a movie the other day Paycheck, (I didn't finish it yet, as My DVD Drive cannot handle using for more than 20 minutes, I'm going to buy a new one soon), In that movie, one of them got his memory erased for 2 months, and when he was asked that are you OK with that, he replied about what does he want to remember from the last 2 months, there was nothing worth remembering.
I started thinking, what do I want to remember from my last period of time, or exactly, what am I going to remember. I was at the office working, What else did I do? I guess nothing important.
When I go back in memory to remember things, I just get back to 2002, that was my golden age. Now from the moment I graduated (February 2004) tell now, what did I do other than finding a job, working, and resign.
Man, I really feel pity for my life, I'm kind of transforming into a machine, yes I have accomplished a lot in these 2 years, but is this what I want. Is my life based on work achievements?
Is work achievements things worth remembering, (in a place other than the interview room).
I just hope that something personal pops up in my life, in some way, as I cannot make it happen.

Firefox 2.0 alpha available

If you aspire to be an early adopter, here's your chance. An alpha version of Firefox 2.0 called "Bon Echo" is available on Mozilla's FTP servers, and you can choose from the Windows version, Mac OS X version, or Linux version.

Due out later this year, Firefox 2.0 promises a handful of improvements and new features over what is already a very solid browser. (By way of disclosure, I use Firefox 1.5 exclusively on my PC.)

Version 2.0 has a handful of new features. One of the more interesting features is the revamped places menu, which is accessible from the bookmarks toolbar. Clicking on that brings up a box that will allow you to search your history, bookmarks, and RSS subscriptions for a keyword. Very useful if you remember reading about something interesting earlier in the day and need to quickly locate the web page again. Aesthetically speaking, there are a few minor tweaks to the UI, such as Xs on inactive tabs for easy closing.

Google's antiphishing tech is also planned for inclusion in a future version of Firefox. Although it does not appear to be incorporated into this early alpha of 2.0, Google Safe Browsing—which uses a combination of blacklisting and "best guesses" about a site's intention—may yet make it into the final release of Firefox 2.0.

The Terms And Conditions

That day I got a notice from a site that I rarely used (but I had an account there) that I'm breaking the law. and if that happens again they are going to delete my account (who cares), so I took a look at the terms of service they have, and just gasped (Oh My God, are we still living in that age), so I didn't wait tell they delete my account, I did it for them.
I'm not going to mention all the terms of services here, but just picked one by random

Not to mention any subject that involves violating proxy, or hacking emails and websites, or even spying on other users' PCs.
I don't know, I guess these things are over, or maybe I'm living in another planet for the last 5 years, I think that those things are called security tips, this black/white hat thing ended ages ago. If somebody has a security bug, everybody has to know, so they would avoid using it, until the bug is fixed

Masks

I've been reading about this masks that we wear all the time, in some blogs around, and I'm really feeling them annoying me.
For some period of time, I decided to remove all the masks I have (Most of them not all), and I tried living with it for a while, I really lived some period of my life, I was really undiplomatic (it was really fun to tell a guy you hate that you really hate him), I talked my heart, and I really felt free (as in freedom).
But graduating from the university, and going into the market destroyed everything, it's almost impossible to live in this world without masks. For example, you cannot tell your Boss that you hate him, or that he is so annoying (I thought about it a lot :P). You can't tell a customer that he is so stupid, or (a3la ma b5ailak erkabo). And as your social life gets smaller and smaller, you have to try to keep what's left from your friends. So you have to wear a different mask with every group of people.
And man, this artificial life that we are living, I really have a trouble getting into it. But in a lot of this you have to, or you would be the stupid geek living upstairs.
Well how many masks I wear, one for work, one for some other group of people at work, one for walking in the streets, one for a particular people I know, other for some group of friends, another for another group .... etc.
I have this question, am I going to live in masks for the rest of my life? Whom am I living for? Can't I just live my life the way I wanted it? ...
Ich kenne nicht.

NULL Issue In MySQL

In the last few days, I was working on some mysterious issue regarding some SQL statements, it was something like this.
SELECT count(*) from some_table WHERE (condition_a);
the result was:
+----------+
| count(*) |
+----------+
|    11223 |
+----------+

alright Now:
SELECT count(*) from some_table WHERE (condition_a) AND (condition_b);
+----------+
| count(*) |
+----------+
|        0 |
+----------+
aha Ok then:
SELECT count(*) from some_table WHERE condition_a AND NOT (condition_b);
The result was also
+----------+
| count(*) |
+----------+
|        0 |
+----------+

HA !!!!
Ok for those 11223 records the condition_a was true, from the second statement I could tell that condition_b was false, so NOT condition_b should be true, but it was also false from the third statement.
So for Logic to play around condition_b, and NOT condition_b both are false (How can that be) all theories of logic are broken (what is going on?)
After breaking up the two conditions, I found that I was comparing one of the values in condition_b with NULL, so in BOTH cases the result would be FALSE, I've always assumed that NULL would be casted to 0, but the fact that in MySQL it's not.
So this was just a thing that you might want to take care of when you write your SQL statements.
Hope it was Useful

Sorry Pink Floyed

After looking at the referring sites that users come to my blog from, I found that Google was on top, and guess what, it's the search for "so you think you can tell heaven from hell", if you googled it, and pressed I'm Feeling Lucky you would go to So You Think You Can Tell Heaven From Hell , and if you pressed search you would find my blog at the top.
I'm sorry I stole that name :)
