What's your favorite quote from Cprogramming.com's forums? To kick off the list, nobody who was there can forget this little gem:


I wrote the code and now need to know the names of the technical bits I have used without noticing.

I'll stick to my assumptions and you can stick to not assuming. And if my code causes a bug, then that's what you get for porting my code to a stupid architecture

I would prefer to ask for space for objects of the same type as the pointer, and not have to worry about what the type is specifically.Yeah, what the hell does it matter what you actually need?My favorite from elsewhere:

From HSR, "When life throws pies 'atcha, you just make yourself a tall, cool glass of pie-mo-nade" =)

Also...

I think DavidP had "To understand recursion, you must first understand recursion."

This is one of my favorites by Quzah, which I believe Thantos had in his sig at one time.

According to Google (www.google.com), it appears someone has (http://www.google.com/search?&q=standard%20deviation%20%22lookup%20table%22). Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words!

Quzah.

Yeah Quzah has had some good ones:



Hey dumbass, go read the announcements. What have you tried? Have you told us what you have tried? Have you shown us your attempt at trying? No? Well then how the hell am I supposed to know what you've already tried? Take your word for it? Why should I?

and another recent one:



I guess you've never heard of non-blocking sockets? As for why it's being discussed, well, that's the kind of things we do around here when we're not barbecuing people for ignoring the forum rules and such. You know, discuss things...

If by "awesome" you mean "gay" then you'd be right.

Attn: Internet

"Teh" is not "teh funnay" or "teh clevar" or anything remotely positive anymore. It's about at "k3wl" or "1337" as Maddox or AYB. Cease and desist its use IMMEDIATELY.

-Govtcheez

PS "LOL!!!11oneoneoneeleven" also stopped being funny long ago. Cut it out.

We know you are struggling with your emotions. You're at a very tumultuous point in your life where you may be experiencing new 'feelings'. You may get the desire to look at maddox, and it's OKAY, these new urges are normal, and you aren't a bad person for having them!!! Ultimately, looking at maddox can be a very beautiful, satisfying experience. If you aren't comfortable looking at maddox alone, you may be able to get a friend to help you look at maddox.
