  • Someone on quora asked:

    What's the best time in your life to decide what you want to do for the rest of it?

    The best time is right now. It's never too late or too early to be who you were meant to be.

  • Someone on quora asked:

    What are the differences between JSP and Servlets?

    JSPs are actually compiled into Java servlets on the server-side anyway. Their main purpose is to make it easier to write and maintain HTML/CSS/JS since doing that in an actual servlet includes writing a lot of out.print statements.

  • Someone on quora asked:

    How can I ensure that my clients will trust my new employee?

    Pair him with an employee that they already trust. Say it is part of your mentoring or training program. Eventually you can wean the client off the more veteran employee

  • A modern day parable for the Philippines:

    Mark Jr. appears before the board of directors of bank. He is applying to be their CEO.

    Director A: So, why should we hire you?

    Mark Jr: I have a lot of good plans for the bank, I plan to (blah, blah, blah)

    Director B: Wow, this guy sounds really good! He has some good plans! We should hire him!

    Director A: Wait a minute. (Looking at Mark Jr's resume). It says here you're the son of the Mark Sr?

    Mark Jr: Yes, so?

    Director A: Mark Sr stole billions from this bank when he was the CEO!

    Director B: Really? I wasn't around then.

    Mark Jr: That's not true! My father's wealth was legitimate!

    Director A: There were court decisions ordering him to pay back the money!

    Director B: Well, we can't really fault him for the sins of his father right?

    Mark Jr: What he said! That was a long time ago, I was still young then. I had nothing to do with it!

    Director A: You were already 20 years old at that time! Your father hired you as his assistant, how could you have nothing to do with it?

    Mark Jr: I'm not the one who was convicted right?

    Director A: Will you at least apologize for your father's crimes?

    Mark Jr: Why should I apologize? I can only apologize for myself.

    Director A: But you admit he stole from this bank?

    Mark Jr: The court already decided about that, we should just move on.

    Director B: I agree, that's the past. We should be excited about this guy's plans for the bank

    Director A: Wait a minute, your family hasn't given back the money your father stole yet. You should give it back!

    Mark Jr: I cannot give what I do not have!

    Director A: Aren't you the executor of your father's estate?

    Mark Jr: Hey let's look to the future ok, not the past

    Director B: I think we should give this guy a chance. Look at his father's record, he did some good stuff for the bank before he stole the money.

    Director A: (glares at Director B like he's an idiot)

    If it were you, would you hire Mark Jr?

  • Daredevil was okay. Pacing felt a bit off in some places, but the fight scenes were great and the Matt - Foggy bromance was well-portrayed. Certainly a better treatment than a two-hour movie could afford, given the nature of Matt Murdock's relationships. A number of threads were left hanging for future series to pick up, but the ending was satisfying enough. I would have hoped for something bigger, but maybe we'll get that in Defenders

  • Europe 2015: Barcelona Part 2

    Previously: I went to Europe, decided I should tell you more about it and started talking about Barcelona Monday March 9th For today, we had decided to visit Park Güell, a Barcelona tourist spot created by this old-timey big shot to display the works of well-known Catalanion architect Antoni Gaudi. I say "well-known" but I'll be the first to admit that my culturally-ignorant self had not heard of him before, but he's kind of a big deal in Barcelona with many souvenir shops sporting some thing reminiscent of his works. My travelling companions seemed to know what they were doing,

  • Say what you will about the Game of Thrones TV series, but I really like how they did the battle of Blackwater Bay (yes, I'm still in season 2 playing catch up). Or maybe I just really enjoy watching large-scale medieval warfare, it's far better than reading about it. Looking forward to the big battle in the North towards the end of season 4.
