For some reason, people who clip their nails in public bug the sh** out of me. There is a lady outside my office right now, going to town, and I cringe everytime i hear the sound. I want to punch her in the gunt.
I was on the bus once, and a dirty lookin dude sits next to me and digs out a nail clipper. Starts doing his thing and his clippings are flying all over the place....poor guy in front of us was getting pelted. I sat, nauseated, with my fists clenched, watching every single stray clipping to make sure they didnt touch me. I am not a violent person, but I honestly would have thrown down if one of them had even grazed my shoe.
I have a similar reaction to just about any sound related to eating. Those Carls Jr. commercials were a nightmare.

those adobe guys just closed the bug as "never fix, reason: workaround", their workaround does not work, and they stop replying as long as their boss is not watching. ****. I wish I had a "punch everyone at adobe in the face" button.
Ahem, name some runtime features that Kevin was personally responsible for? When people like Tinic Uro leave, I'll be worried. Or when Grayson Lang left, I thought I was the only one who noticed.
Hmm. So let's see. You have an executive that champions the technology that hired Tinic Uro and you don't see the significance of his departure? Allow me to explain it since it's overlooked.
The people Lynch would have hired at Adobe to push AS3/Flash will more than likely never would have been hired by Apple. Your heroes would have never had an chance any other place than the place Lynch just left if they stayed on the path of AS3.
Quite significant once you get outside of your egocentric view of things.
But then again, that's just me. I see the business side, I see the hiring practices side, I see the fact that you have a competent executive that people wanted to work alongside people like Kevin Lynch. Would you want to work alongside Ballmer or Jobs and still enjoy using Flash?
Oh well... I'll name some esoteric name in the next post for you to feel all nostalgic about next time.
