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.

    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?

    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...?
