Facebook Hell

I noticed this picture on flickr the other day….
Facebook Hell. I know exactly what the guy means. I have been on facebook for a very short space of time, have 3 friends on there and I am already inundated with drivel. I suppose thats why it is not really appealing to the over 25’s. The application has taken vitality to a whole new annoyance level. I wonder if Dom Jolly will be doing a comedy sketch on this sort of shit.


The title is not a spelling mistake. fashism.jpg
This is worth a read. Its fairly tongue in cheek but good fun.
The Last Language War / Language Trolling Post You’ll Ever Need To Read (Hopefully)
The comments are a testament to how dumb some people are. Bits like:

“Oh…. Why didn’t you include my language”.
“I cannot believe you didn’t include the language X”
“Language X would have been the cool kid, splurgh”
“Blah blah blah”

Why are developers so petty, why do they not get sarcasm. I have heard developers, between bouts of mental wanking, talk about “Fashion Victims” as if these people had some sort of disease. Wake up, we’re all susceptible to fashion. You might be fashion conscious about:
Programming Languages.
Yours might not be on the list but I am sure that between us we could find something. Does this make us all fashcists?

Trouble shooting Hadoop

I have been playing around with hadoop recently and came across the following error
org.apache.hadoop.mapred.InvalidInputException: Input path doesnt exist :
If this happens have you ran a command similar to the following
bin/hadoop dfs -put input /user/root/input
if not that might be your problem.
