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.

    Several years ago it was one of the sites I checked daily. But it seems to have died, updates are few and far between (think years, not weeks).

    But if you've never been there spend some time with it, there is a lot of comedy gold.

    Yeah their updates have gone way down. QDB http://www.qdb.us/ [www.qdb.us] was pretty good too at one point. Though it seems people post back and forth on them so you get quite a large number of duplicates.

    Latest feeds are your best bet on both sites.

      The latest feed on bash.org has not been updated in over a year. I think its dead, Jim.

        Did Netcraft confirm it?
