This is the scene this morning as dozens of roads around the county remain blocked due to heavy flooding.The worst of the flooding appears to be in the east of the county including Letterkenny, Lifford and Milford while there are also reports of heavy water in Annagry and Doochary.Motorists are being advised not to drive through flood water on roads after a number of vehicles became stuck because the water was so deep. Many housing estates are badly-hit including Glenwood Park in Letterkenny.The local council had to leave sandbags to the estate last night after heavy rain threatened to flood houses.Many roads still remain unpassable including the main road into Letterkenny from Glenswilly which is shown in our picture.Farmers are desperately trying to get to animals which have become stranded. * Have you been stranded or do you have a flood picture form your area? Send them to [email protected] and we will keep the Donegal public informed.FLOODS CAUSE EARLY MORNING TRAFFIC CHAOS ACROSS COUNTY was last modified: December 14th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
Punk ProgrammingPick up the keyboard. Bash it against the screen, self, wall. Become disinterested when others do the same.Platonic ProgrammingYou and the code are just going to remain friends. Nothing fancy is going to happen, and you’re certainly not going to take it home at night. You could never love this code in that way.Passive ProgrammingThe same as pair programming, except one of the pair members is asleep, or in the bathroom, or at lunch, or doesn’t even know you’re at their desk, logged into their account, writing pull request under their username…SpiteOpsUsing admin powers for evil rather than good. Typical examples include revoking access, removing users, deleting user-space directories, and pointing load balancers at desktops. Also fun with wireless networks and mac address filtering.Prayer ProgrammingDear lord, please let this work.Livin’ on a Prayer ProgrammingThe same as pair programming, but with Jon Bon Jovi as your partner.Pare ProgrammingBegin with a large amount of code. Select a reference to some method, library, class, variable, what have you. Highlight the referenced item and delete it. Repeat until the application is completely broken. Submit pull request. By now, you and your teams of developers have dipped their toes into every waterfall, every agile pond, and quite a few DevOps rainbows. From pair programing and burndown charts to story times and scrum meetings, you probably feel as though you’ve heard of every type of agile practice there is.(Related: Agile works when employees are happy)Not so! There are many lesser-known agile practices that could vastly improve your day-to-day productivity (or, at least, your enjoyment of work). So then, without further ado, we present some lesser-known types of agile development.Pear ProgrammingPlace a pear on your desk between your keyboard and monitor. When you’ve found the root cause of a bug and fixed it with a full comment, pull request and unit test, eat the pear. Great for developers who have bad eating habits.Purr ProgrammingFind a cat. Place the cat in your lap. Program. Extremely calming, given the proper cat. The wrong cat can be extremely detrimental to workflow. Also try not to let kitty write any actual code: Cats on keyboards are the leading cause of bugs in purr programming pairs.Pokémon ProgrammingWhen catching one exception isn’t enough, you gotta catch ‘em all! Also works with logs.
