@33MHz Hmm, that's bad. Maybe we should have shorter conversations ;-)

A 2nd study .. confirmed the initial results. Parents with more conflict and less cooperation were more likely to have boys with M. personality

@schmidt_fu
A survey of 266 adolescents found that intense and unresolved parental conflict was associated with Machiavellianism in boys but not girls.

Some good info on how.

@jws @unixb0y As I said, I *did* burn out on the whole CS book genre.
It took me a while to start reading again (if only because my kids wouldn't let me ;-) ).
Now I'm super picky about what to buy & read, and about why.
@schmidt_fu
@jws What killed my curiosity finally was helping review 2 Java books, 1 Git book and one that never took off (can't be named). This showed me that publishers basically play "Battleship" with technologies "across" and reader experience "down".

@schmidt_fu
@jws None yet in *this* book (and I'm only a few dozen lessons in). But I've read through tons of obsolete knowledge even in the most recent IT books.
So much so, that I've even given up buying new ones for a year or two at times :-/
@schmidt_fu
@jws That explains how you get through the vastness of written knowledge then!
Do you have those books available all the time? Digitally, even?

@unixb0y
@schmidt_fu
@jws @unixb0y In this case you'll *love* Amazon's "Look inside the Book" and Google Books' preview - they include forewords most of the time ;-)
@schmidt_fu
@jws It's "Lessons Learnt in Software Testing", Kaner, Bach, Pettichord, Wiley, 2002.
It's built from 293 "lessons", short theses agreed on by >=2 of the authors. It should reflect the timeless part of what they learned in testing, not the latest tools.
@schmidt_fu
@jws That's true indeed! The book I'm reading on testing is not quite as old, but 15 years already.
Sometimes it gets annoying to read about anachronisms too much, though.

@33MHz My bones can tell a story about in-laws!

@schmidt_fu
@jws Interesting. Is it still current?
/ @unixb0y @lechindianer
@schmidt_fu
@unixb0y I recommend it. I cited it to my students and colleagues when arguing about style.
@jws
US telcos appear to be selling direct, non-anonymized, real-time access to consumer telephone data to third party services — not just federal law enforcement officials — who are then selling access to that data. [medium.com]
@schmidt_fu
@jws Yeah, that was a tough time with both our kids also.
Good luck with your experiments!
