SoylentNews is people

A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history, with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.

If it weren't for C, we'd all be programming in BASI and OBOL.

There are 10 types of people in the world: those who understand binary, and those who don't.

In a world without fences and walls, who needs Gates and Windows?

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.

Computers make very fast, very accurate mistakes.

    Maybe this shouldn't have been released. It looks like it was for training only.

      Yeah I laughed at it. But also the other articles today have been fantastic, and the comments! Whoa! Highly recommended reading.

      it's not a dupe, but a rehash of the jokes everybody already knows.

      but anyhow, does Soylentnews have an acronym like "/."? "SN" or "SNiP"? or just a S like the favicon?

        How about 'Oylentnew'? (Because the S is soylent)
        Ugh, I embarrass myself.

        I'm partial to S/N because of the double meaning.

            Clearly it's a play on the abbreviation of Senegal, but only true fans will get the joke.

            Speaking of which, has soylentnews.sn been registered...?

    This looks SO much like the final paper for my Computer Degree from the University of Easter Island (Nigeria Campus, payments by Western Union to Prof I.Ripov based in Belarus)

    Actually, this made my day after "one of those days".. more like two such days in a row. Thanks for putting a smile back on my face!

    But is hasn't been released:

    "posted by on Thursday February 27, @09:08AM"

    If it hasn't been posted by anyone, then clearly it hasn't been posted. Which is good, as it means you won't have to waste your time reading my reply, which also I didn't post.

      Thanks for that, FatPhil. It was the result of a mistake, but I take some small pleasure in looking at the number of comments it has received. There are other sites which would welcome that level of a response!
