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.

    I just found out that bash.org is blocked at work.

    That particular link may be the reason why, but I'll never know.
