Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.

When I read about Steve Job's commencement address in Stanford University last july 2005 one of the last words he shared with those students was "Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish."

I never thought that when he said "Stay hungry. Stay foolish" he really means it literally.

One of the greatest strength that I realize as a developer was you should get hungry by eating enough. If you can survive eating breakfast, lunch or dinner without rice and meat you will gain more focus on your work however, this kind of sacrifice must be done once or twice a week for it will loose your weight drastically.

One of the disadvatage when your eating delicious food and you tend to fill your tummy is you get dizzy after eating and when you are in front of your computer and start to type those keys nothing comes to your head except one and that is "SLEEP." It really feels like harry potter is puting some magic spell on you to get some sleep.

Eat light and stay hungry it gives you focus.

Another weird thing that I observe from computers was had something to do with human aura or energy or magnetic waves I really don't know the exact description but base on my observation when your working with your system everything seems to run fast and normal according to your standard however when the time come someone comes to you and wonder what are you working at? and this person is someone new(and he never saw your system yet) once you click the execute button the program seems to start so long and slow and sometimes unexpected bugs appear knowing that you have run it over and over again.

Strange isn't it? I think the adrenalin rush has something to do with it or i may be just a fool because my mind has been condition that my program really runs this slow I just didn't notice it because I have been facing my computer since 6am.

I guess Steve Jobs really tells us to be really fools.

Wow! I really enjoyed your last posts. Good work.

Although it's not much, check out blue pit bulls. It's about blue pit bulls related stuff. It's not much, but it's a start :-)
We work like a horse.
We eat like a pig.
We like to play chicken.
You can get someone's goat.
We can be as slippery as a snake.
We get dog tired.
We can be as quiet as a mouse.
We can be as quick as a cat.
Some of us are as strong as an ox.
People try to buffalo others.
Some are as ugly as a toad.
We can be as gentle as a lamb.
Sometimes we are as happy as a lark.
Some of us drink like a fish.
We can be as proud as a peacock.
A few of us are as hairy as a gorilla.
You can get a frog in your throat.
We can be a lone wolf.
But I'm having a whale of a time!

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.
As soon as we acknowledge
this Supreme Designer/Architect,
Who has erected the beauteous
fabric of the universe, our minds
must necessarily be ravished with
wonder at this infinate goodness,
wisdom and power.

Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
Dr. Howdy

P.S. One thing of which I am sure is
that the common culture of my youth
is gone for good. It was hollowed out
by the rise of ethnic "identity politics,"
then splintered beyond hope of repair
by the emergence of the web-based
technologies that so maximized and
facilitated cultural choice as to make
the broad-based offerings of the old
mass media look bland and unchallenging
by comparison."
