    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Come on. Be nice - we all have to start learning somewhere, even Logic Emulators! Mario, how on earth did you find/know about that? Wonder if they're related ... No Doctype here either ... what is it with site admins and doctypes?
