    Sons of the planet

    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    One more than it's your turn.

    Their voices aren't in unison and yet their sound inspires even modern composers. Hint: Short
