Astronaut Neil Armstrong, first man to walk on moon, dies at age 82Cosmic Log

I’m sorry to hear this. For people my age, NASA and the space program were such an important part of our childhood. We’d wake up any hour of the day or night to watch launches and splashdowns.

Astronauts were as famous as pro athletes and rock stars . . .actually, they were more famous than athletes. Being a pro athlete in the 1960s wasn’t what it is today.

It would be nice if I could let this go without mentioning that Armstrong was a graduate of the University of Southern California, but I can’t.

R.I.P. Neil Armstrong


Action is Eloquence

6 Jun 2000 /
Action is eloquence.
— Shakespeare, Coriolanus
Vicious, despicable, or thoroughly disliked persons, gentlemen, and ladies can be project managers. Lost souls, procrastinators, and wishy-washies cannot.

You can have a lot of bad qualities and still be an effective project manager, but you can’t be indecisive. Work out your personal insecurities on your own time.

Make a decision. Move on to the next problem.

Thus spoke The Programmer.
