Because despite not taking part talismancer will still (justifiably) snark at me if I leave it at that, here's a bonus post! Admittedly it's a meme, but it's the traditional NaBloPoMo one, now back for a seventh year...

Compared to last year there's been very little change - two pairs in the top 10 have swapped position (ralesk and tau_iota_mu_c, Anonymous and mirrordreams), but in both cases only because one person in the pair has posted any comments.
As a minor aside, it took me only a couple of minutes to download the 150MB zip file for Eclipse, and maybe half that to extract it (then five minutes spent trying to work out why it wasn't starting - it'd help if the 64-bit package actually used the 64-bit Java runtime...). Back when I started university doing the same took much longer - Internet access wasn't anywhere near as fast, and both processors and disks were much slower. Modern computing is fast.
Interestingly my 7-year-old desktop is actually more responsive than the shiny new Lenovo T440 laptop $WORK has allocated. The laptop has a high-end Core i-something-or-other (probably an i5, probably 3GHz, definitely 8 cores), 8GB of RAM, and plenty of disk space. Nyx, the desktop, has an old Core 2 Quad Q6600 (2.4GHz and only 4 cores), a mere 4GB RAM... and a crazy fast Plextor M5S SSD. It's no contest, really.
