No, I got it from a page on facebook.

However, I saw a T-shirt that reads You are the {CSS} to my <HTML>

Did you get that from a t shirt

Hi Agnishom;

That is good. That jar will open now!

A programmer's wife told him that I can't open the jar, the Programmer told him to install Java

Yeah! tell me about it. I work with artists who think because they have learned how write a small script
they are somehow equivalent to god. Not only do they do things like this, they also NEVER comment their
code. Then to add further complication they needlessly split functions out into separate files. Also they
don't document or provide test data for the program. As a result when you come to make some changes
you have to go through the whole thing line by line. They don't seem to understand the concept of making
it work on paper before going anywhere near a keyboard.

These people are a menace and have no business being in charge of a programming language.down

What is this all about?

A programmer goes to the shop to buy some milk. His wife calls and says "While you're out, get some eggs." He never returns.

This version makes me laugh harder roflol

bobbym: Those ideas sound good to me.

supercoder:All those ideas are too old fashioned, dude! Ya turn up the rap music, snort, swallow, light or inject your favorite narcotic and produce 17 million lines of code.

bobbym: That is why it is bloated, spaghetti code! I mean is it necessary for a hello world program to be 100 megabytes?

supercoder:Bloated is cool man. Thin is a sin. Today's machines have terabytes of everything. If something is slow today, i just wait for a faster machine. Ya dig pops?

bobbym: I guess I never will.

supercoder: U are stills holding on to all that programmering baggage man, from when u was at NASA.

bobbym: NASA? Not exactly.

supercoder: Whatever dude! Today we produce 30 billion lines of code per week. Take Windows man, 179 billion lines of code and i wrote all of it.

bobbym: That explains a lot.

Pen and paper is great! Sketch the ideas, develop algorithms, come up with good variable names, all before you hit the keyboard. But then I often have to revise my ideas when the reality of programming kicks in.

Another good thing: print out your code, sit down in a comfy chair (or in bed) and revise it all. Boy that can clean your code up really nicely.

Hi Bobby

I am calm now. Calm Calm Calm.

No I don't think they teach that anymore. I suppose with computers being so cheap and fast compared with what they
were, they must think it is not needed anymore. I prefer to work that way. It means I can lay on a couch with a pad,
pen and cup of tea. Just like Patrick Jane! Nice!

Hi DaveRobinsonUK1;

Calm down Dave. Thoughts like that only elevate your blood pressure. They do not change the way they work.

But between you and I, you are absolutely correct.

They don't seem to understand the concept of making
it work on paper before going anywhere near a keyboard.

I did not think anyone coded like that anymore or even knew about it.

programmers have noticed it's much easier to program an automatic insult generator than a worship generator.

and that death of people was always the same : enough money was put in the bet, that it was worth programming the death of with certainty : take bill with the more money corresponding, say the cause.
