See link. [^]

Don't you all just love when business people and PR mouthpieces use words like "excited" to refer to write-offs?

"Why, I'm so excited that we could ditch this dead weight for a third of the price we paid for it, I can barely hold on to my pants!"

If one morning I woke up and realized I took a decision that flopped to the tune of $6 billion, I guess I'd be many things, but excited wouldn't be one of them.

Must be nice to be obscenely rich...
"Whereas smaller computer languages have features designed into them, C++ is unusual in having a whole swathe of functionality discovered, like a tract of 19th century Africa."
