Why is this hatred and stereotyping in the comments of a front page Hacker News article?
Is it particularly uncommon for someone that both drinks and is passionate about programming to write code drunk? Someone incorporated an arduino breathalyzer into a source control tool with some jokey features.
What's so stupid or frathouse-ish about that? It's not super-duper strait laced and serious, but neither is life.
Also, I learned that someone's made a breathalyzer attachment for the Arduino (should have been obvious, in retrospect). YMMV, but it was a good use of my 60 seconds.
They can be a little tricky, but I'm sure you'll get the hang of them if you try.
That's why you install this cool thingy that doesn't let you commit when drunk. Sadly, it's not as easy with cars and drunk drivers...
