John Hardin replied to Paul's discussion What you CAN'T do on a Mac (or Windows) in the group Linux
"Last I looked, you couldn't create symbolic or hard links to files on Windows.   Used to complain that you could only resize windows on a Mac desktop by grabbing the lower right corner, but that seems to have changed on Lion to become more…"

Paul Graydon replied to John Hardin's discussion Hire vs Train in the group Maui Techies
"I apply will ye, nill ye, to jobs.  My general rule of thumb is to confidently hit 50% of must, and be able to take a stab at a further 25%, but I'm not necessarily zealous about those percentages.  If I've got 50% of must…"

Hi John

Maui+ TOaks? small world. Main reason for maui move is new wife wants to return to island and I want to leave TO. Got a nice place in Haiku last summer and plan to bring tools & tech to start a hackerspace, do small manufacturing (fab lab), training, and maybe some sw dev to pay the bills.

I was there in '81 and worked at the Student Health Center as a Programmer about '88? I think or so they still had everything on cards in PL1and was paying for processing time so I moved everything over to the PC's and to COBOL and processed all the data there then just uploaded it to the database on the Mainframe. I still remember my first Card program which was to make a frog jump in decreasing amounts until a certain distance then stop in Fortran, I still have those cards somewhere haha..

Hi John,
I was a prolific NeXTStep developer and used Objective-C for ten years. Probably my all-time favorite platform. Apple has added a lot, and I need to get back up to speed, but it remains very familiar to me.

Email me at if you want to discuss further.

Hi John. I see we both joined the hui within a day of each other. Finally, someone who's been programming longer than I have!

E komo mai John! We hope you had a nice weekend.

The FAQ is a good place to learn about the site. You may want to join some of the interest groups such as C/C++, Python and Maui Techies.

We hope you find TechHui useful and invite others. Have a great week!
