I knew that, but triangles is easier for most people to see...
Government can give you nothing but what it takes from somebody else. A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you've got, including your freedom.-Ezra Taft Benson
You must accept 1 of 2 basic premises: Either we are alone in the universe or we are not alone. Either way, the implications are staggering!-Wernher von Braun
I would absolutely agree! A good programmer is all about patterns and details, little else matters. (I'm not talking about formal programming Patterns, such as "Singleton", "Factory" and so on - mostly those are just overused names to hide ignorance in idiots).
In this case, a glance at the car gave a "pattern error" and the detail was "missing wheelnut". For me, that's instinctive; monkey see somethign odd, monkey want to know what is wrong.
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...

FYI, I recently stopped using FoxIt reader as I noticed network traffic to China servers every-time it was opened. It may be legit cloud service but I can't be 100% positive and their government, in theory, could get involved at anytime, I am guessing for a worse-case scenario.
I still use FoxIt, but always, always, always go through the custom install steps and uncheck everything but the basic program - and then go through the Programs and Features control panel applet, sort by date, and remove anything new that FoxIt still tried to install alongside itself, like this CloudPrint (?) service that I think they finally gave up on after years of me complaining after every update that still included it.
Then I rename their updater EXE so it doesn't launch automatically all the time, despite me telling not to check for updates.
If it's sounding like a lot of trouble...lets just say I'm looking at other people's responses in this thread.
Several years ago, in the early years of Foxit, my employer wanted us, for "political" reasons, to use Foxit. The character rendering, especially in small sizes, was so terrible that it strained my eyes badly, so I refused. After being shown the same document side-by-side, on one screen, in Adobe Reader and Firefox, my boss accepted my complaints, and we ditched Foxit.
A few years later, under a new employer, I tried Foxit again to see if rendereing had improved. It ha not, as far as I could see. We did not switch to Foxit. Linux users claimed that rendering on their screens were very good; it seemed as if the Windows port was a quick and dirty left hand job.
If Foxit on Windows today were as bad as a few years ago, it probably would have been out of the market, so I guess it has improved. But I don't care to check until I have to find another PDF reader; then I might try it again. Twice, with a few years inbetween, leading to the same conclusion, was enough to settle my mind. It takes more than "But try it now, it might have improved!" to excite me.
I use PDF Xchange Viewer from Tracker Software[^]. It is free, allows the user to insert a comments layer, allowing the addition of text and "rubber stamps." It comes with a number of preset rubber stamps and also allows users to create and use their own. I created a signature stamp which allows me to "sign" documents.
