I don’t usually have class on Monday so i decided to hit the blogs av not somad in a while and saw this tag by @savvykenya and decided why not write:

1. What time did you get up this morning?

To be honest it was up kitu 7.30 ju leo sina daro,na jana was sunday so i was bila  hangover

2. How do you like your steak?

Am assuming ni steak ya nyama tunaongea kuhusu {perverted Me}..hapo ata sijui niseme aje as long as i wash it down with a pilsner i usually dont give a damn,sijui ati iwekwe nini na nini…

3. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?

Am a strong Kenyan Patriot, but lets not kid ourselves Kenya sio Garden of Eden.. if i could live outside here then i think it would be Russia,maybe coz of the Vodoski or maybe coz Russia just has this hardcore look.Most of their hackers are so bad ass that the KGB used to hire them to steal secrets from States during the Cold War.So russia it would be, me and my laptop sipping Vodoski

4. Cup 1/2 empty or 1/2 full?

neither,mimi ni ule jamaa atauliza “Nani anataka kununua maji tumuuzie hii”, alafu akisha kunywa ata hiyo cup yenyewe tunauza…

5. What is your favorite sport to watch?

Sasa hapa ndo watu watashangaa, i HATE watching soccer, kwangu football ni overated, kama kumangana missionary…what do i watch???mhhhh!!! Rugby mostly, game live za Kenya au anything worthwhile on Supersport

6. Any new and exciting news you’d like to share?

Kabisa…Two Android Apps in one month,a client interested in one and currently working on how to customize it for his needs #code

7. What did you want to be when you were little?

I had a thing {still do} for Electronics growing up,everyone thought i would do Electronics Eng in campo…that was what i was really into as a kid…but somehow along the road that is life i found Math and code…but i still do circuitry on weekends

8. What is your best childhood memory?

I had an uncle who used to work for the Kenya Airforce. So this one time we went to visit him barracks za Nanyuki..ilikuwa so facking awesome..seeing jets and choppers in close range, actually being able  to touch the planes and see them take off and land…..that was one of those things that siwezi sahau

Till later on in High school i discoverd kunakuwanga na cheap booze at the officers mess and stoped hitting the run way #froth

9. Do anything spontaneous lately?

Spontaneous is relative, but i guess kwangu the most spontaneous thing i did was hoping on a bus for Mombasa on a Wednesday just for the shear adrenaline rush…having wasee wa daro call me “Jaymo kuna class afte?”While am drinking madafu with some coasto tweeps #awesome

10. Like your job?

I do freelance work for Jamuhuri Tech….and I sure as hell love it

11. What was your favorite vacation?

ctrl -A,ctrl- C,ctrl- V coder

Wacha niongee ju nimenyamaza for long….ok I have credible reasons for that but before I start hauling insults left right and center let me first share one or two heart warming things with those readers  who give me   genuine reson to write:

First I have just completed 2 Apps this month  which is kinda great for a small time coder as my self.(I read the guy who worked on IRIS did the whole app in 8 hours…..) Si wezi danganya nikuambie they will be the next great Ideas out there but what I can garuntee is they are coded  like the Egyptians build the Pyramids{Pure Art}…The way KaBinti looks {Pure beauty} The way my erection feels {Hardcore} So after all those man hours of coding I had to indulge in kidogo froth Thursday to Sato style…just the way Jaymo likes it.No wonder @mwas_LT was complaining about me drunk tweeting

While on that  topic of coding wacha nigusie kitu, I have great respect for the Kenyan code greats,@iddsalim Mohamed Maway @mbuguanjihia ,jaws na wengi wengineo I have blooged about them in way too many occassions, so let me talk about my league of coders,guys who come to me for code advice and I also replicate , this coders deserve attention pia.I have respect for kindred spirits  like @TayianaC Brenda Angweyi @twinkioko @ZacckOS people who actually ask for help code ikileta nyef nyef, guys who help you build your code skills by helping them solve bugs in theirs,but wale wamenichokesha ni ma copy pasters ma ctrl -A,ctrl- C,ctrl- V coders 

Haya sasa nime jam,why did i  have to go there,So here is what happened Coder flani…ata si coder,ni ka jamaa kanajifunza code,after kissing ass a whole semester i decided to help him with code kiasi, i recon its me giving back to society,Nothing wrong with that right? so mbona ume jam basi Jaymo, Well the dude carries a flash with him like kila tyme,so i chuck out kiasi and am guessing ndo workspace ili fanyiwa maneno, I come back to find dude with the Dog ate my homework  look,reading some pearl script i was working on for a pal,Kajamaa kakadaii ati ohhh wacha kaende kame pata what he wanted.

So mimi bila kujua nikaendelea na works,2 weeks later I hear he is doing Beta Testing <unaanza aje Beta bila Pre-Alpha na Alpha>. So i check out his .apk,walahi ni code ya Jaymo.Design,dimens,styles kila kitu….mpaka my customized quickactions.Yote…yangu

Mtu huambiwa asirushe mawe kama huna proof so i decompile his piece of crap,nyga ata ku obfusicate ni kazi ngumu kwake…manze code ni yangu, mpaka method namimg,class names…drawable names,raw zote…in other word this is just my work…..Nikajam,nika toka nje kuona kama kuna mahali nje ya mlango yangu imeandikwa opensource,au github HQ

Na mimi si ule msee wa kuketi na wezi chini tukiongea{Intelectual theft},Damu yangu ya umeru haiwezi, kwanza ilikuwa inadai nitafute panga nimshikishe adabu…but any way there are several  ways to correct a wrong.Tuesday  ndo nili roll  out operation shikisha adabu…4 hours attack on his computer….na ju haka ka jamaa ni ka WI-Fi junkie running a windows machine haikuwa kazi ngumu kuingia na ku erase my code from his HardDrive, re wrtite his and make all his methods echo “DAWAA YA WIZI NI ADHABU”…sasa naskia kana sema ati kana target machine yangu for subbotage.So here is what i have planned, you all know bubble gum Riddim…ile Riddim huchezwa kila mahali siku hizi, kinyozi,kibanda, choo,ma3 za kayole..bass hiyo..haka kajamaa kakidai za ovyo hivyo ndo source code yake itakuwa

Buda you really want to play it like that????

The tao of Programming

Prince Wang’s programmer was coding software. His fingers
danced upon the keyboard. The program compiled without an
error message, and the program ran like a gentle wind.
“Excellent!” the Prince exclaimed, “Your technique is faultless!”
“Technique?” said the programmer turning from his terminal,
“What I follow is Tao — beyond all techniques! When I first
began to program I would see before me the whole problem in
one mass. After three years I no longer saw this mass. Instead, I
used subroutines. But now I see nothing. My whole being exists
in a formless void. My senses are idle. My spirit, free to work
without plan, follows its own instinct. In short, my program
writes itself. True, sometimes there are difficult problems. I see
them coming, I slow down, I watch silently. Then I change a
single line of code and the difficulties vanish like puffs of idle
smoke. I then compile the program. I sit still and let the joy of
the work fill my being. I close my eyes for a moment and then
log off.”
Prince Wang said, “Would that all of my programmers were as
