    smart questions

    The how to ask questions the smart way link led me off on a magical mystery tour today - pun intended if you get it- many amazing pages of essays and thinking i connected to from it - here's a great one, with some funny stuff depending on your particular experiences as a programmer, clearly quite old, but the messages remain:

    Thought for the day:
    "Are you sure your sanity chip is fully screwed in sir?" (Kryten)
    FLTK: "The most fun you can have with your clothes on."

    Stroustrup:

    If memory serves me right, Prelude used to link to that in her signature. That's how I first got introduced to it.

    A fun read which is at the same time highly advisable for its educational content.
    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.
