Are We For Real?

WCVB – The second Massachusetts Marine in two weeks has been killed in action in Afghanistan. Sgt. Daniel Vasselian, 27, of Abington, was killed Monday, his family said. He was ambushed, two days before Christmas, as he was getting off a Humvee, they said.

How many fucking times have I said it? What. In the actual fuck. Is. The United States. Still doing. In. Fucking Afghanistan/Iraq/Middle East. Jesus fucking Christ. There’s no reason for us to be losing boys anymore these days. Send everyone home. It’s not going to solve anything.

RIP dude and we thank you for serving this inferior country that does not believe in peace.

Geeky Scripting Shit

I am blogging this for my own good because I always fucking forget the difference between this shit and lost the link.  It was explained super well on StackOverflow. Sorry if you don’t give a fuck about it or it’s not funny. Whatever dudes.

A windows batch file (called.bat or called.cmd) can be called from another batch file (caller.bat or caller.cmd) or interactive cmd.exe prompt in several ways:

  1. direct call: called.bat
  2. using call command: call called.bat
  3. using cmd command: cmd /c called.bat
  4. using start command: start called.bat

Answers:

  1. the batch file will be executed by the current cmd.exe instance (or a new cmd.exe instance if, for instance, double-clicked in Explorer).
  2. same as #1, only has an effect when used inside a batch/cmd file. In a batch file, without ‘call’, the parent batch file ends and control passes to the called batch file; with ‘call’ runs the child batch file, and the parent batch file continues with statements following call.
  3. runs the batch file in a new cmd.exe instance.
  4. start will run the batch file in a new cmd.exe instance in a new window, and the caller will not wait for completion.

Pet Peeve: Elevator Door Close Buttons

Portfolioso December 12, 2013 No Comments Rants

You know what really pisses me off? The close door button on an elevator. It NEVER WORKS. What’s the point then? I get to an elevator in my lobby and start hitting the button so I can go up to my floor in peace, but instead, the door stays open for another 15 seconds until the curry powder smelling Indian chick gets on.

Fucking elevators.
