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.

    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!
