So Zelda being almost impossibly hard wasn't just a ploy to sell more Nintendo Power magazines?

The Master System was so great. Wonder Boy in Monster Land is one of my all time favorite games.

Anyone tried this site? http://www.startupadoptionagency.com/

First Form (RelativeWave), now Pixate. Two prototyping apps in less than a year.

FWIW when you go premium you can download your playlists and tracks within Spotify to take on the go. You just toggle offline mode.

Indeed.

Sick burn!

Clearly a niciety. That said, it's possible that she did excel in other areas. She's CEO not community wrangler. As a casual user, I had no idea who the CEO even was until recently. Similarly, although I have a username, I couldn't name another user or mod on the entire site. Someone got fired? Ok. Doesn't effect me.

One long humblebrag.

Dude this is Pete Sampras here. One of the best tennis players in the history of ever. He can brag; he's earned the right to brag.

Also, this is a great insight into the mind of a top athlete after his career is over. He talks about what he did right and what he did wrong, and where he'd change things up if he had the chance to do it over again. That's some invaluable insight that can benefit anyone who's just starting or who is in the middle of playing tennis both on a for fun level and on a competition level.

If this was an article written by Linus Torvalds in exactly the same tone, as a letter to his younger self, would you say he was bragging? Or would you be overjoyed that he'd shared some of his struggles so that you could learn from those struggles and maybe avoid them yourself?

I agree, bragging is acceptable provided that there is consensus.

With that much success, it might be hard to write anything reflective without "humblebragging."

More proof that CEOs are grossly overpaid. Who needs that many cars? Just disgusting.

trolololo
