    Favorite Quotes or Responses on C Board

    I have to tell you that this board is a great source of laughs and chuckles. In keeping with that I think we should post some of our favorite quotes or responses to questions. I'll go first:

    File input
    I have been using fgets() to read lines of a file I have and store them in a linked list. This has been working very well but after the last line I seem to end up with "x(smiley face)>" in the list. I have checked and this string does indeed result from the last call to fgets before EOF. I have used a hex editor to check the file and at the end of the last line is just the usual 0D 0A. What is going on here?

    And of course in my tag line:

    I cannot express how glad I am you brought this up.

    I joined this board last month, and around then I saw a post that made me laugh for a very long time. I would literally chuckle for days after reading it. I wanted to share how funny I thought it was, but there hasn't been an appropriate opportunity to bring it up until now. The post I am referring to is here.

    The user got banned, I believe for this last post. Besides being extremely difficult and thick, he also starting making demands of the members while at the same time calling them nerds!

    I don't know why this tickled my fancy, but the closing line was the best:

    From you nerds, I would like some better and optimized logic than those I posted

    LOL priceless!

    Are you sure he was banned? People aren't banned too often on this forum. Despite being thick and rude at points, I'm pretty sure he was attempting to be endearing when he called the board "nerds" as in "people who know more than me."

    Hmm, it would appear not. I thought so because I saw their name crossed out with "banned" underneath, but that was a while ago. Apparently not anymore.

    Perhaps they were trying to be endearing, it's difficult to tell with written text, especially when they are generally unclear in their communication.

    But regardless of the details, it still strikes me as funny. It reminded me of "The Simpsons" when Homer got arrested down south, and at his trial, said: "Your honor, I'd like to defend myself. Drunken hicks of the jury..."

    They were and are drunken hicks, just as luck and my crazy savvy would have it, self-consciously unabashed and honest drunken hicks. Or at least, "for the most part"...which that is democracy

    One of my new favorites.

    EDIT:

    And from one of my tag lines in my past life here:

    It used to be in somebody's signature but one of Salem's best chew-out was of that George<numbers> guy who incessentantly asked questions about all and sundry. All I remember is that I couldn't stop laughing and it had something to do with colours and rainbows.

    Found it:
    That entire thread is an epitome of his stay. Not as funny as I remember it being, I guess it was a more 'of the moment' kind of thing.

    That's British humor for you. Want to have a good laugh? Make sure those damn pommies are around. They are some of the best.
    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.
