My old funny uncle is having a sound sleep meters away. He was snorting so loud I couldn't focus on anything. I screamed "You old man can't play that bass a little less louder?". And now he's snorting less loudly. I don't know how people respond in sleep automatically and keep going. lol His snort sounds so controlled and careful now.
Starting to think people post kid pics in their profiles because that was the last time they were cute - Jeremy.
1. No programming questions in the Lounge.
2. Where's the programming question in your post? "Remember x?" hardly qualifies as a "programming question".
3. So, to answer your subject, no.
4. You have proven your point though.
The guy who wrote the software I'm currently trying to fix had a neat fuzzy logic system going.
As far as I can decipher from his "code", it went something like this:
NULL - Was I really meant to initialise it?
TRUE - Well, it seemed as good a value as any other so I just went with it.
FALSE - See true.
TRUE OR FALSE - I really haven't a clue what's going on and maybe calling it IsNotInCollection added to the confusion so I'll test for both true and false because one of them's bound to be right. I think.
TUESDAY AFTERNOON - Something always has to be different on a Tuesday afternoon, doesn't it?
POSSIBLY - Might be, might not be, better not test just in case.
WOMBLES - I wasn't really thinking about the requirements when I wrote this bit.
CATFISH - Catfish? Catfish are cool, m'kay. They've got those weird probe-like things that look a bit like whiskers. That's why they call them catfish, you know. They can get really, really big and stuff. What's this software meant to be doing again?
WIBBLE - I'm going to show off now and try to do some LINQ. I'm good at LINQ and I'll be even better when I've learned it.
OOPSIE - Damn! I almost got it right, I was just binding to a completely unrelated value. It happens.
He spoke English, you know! He learned it from a book!
Anything that is unrelated to elephants is irrelephant Anonymous - The problem with quotes on the internet is that you can never tell if they're genuine Winston Churchill, 1944 - I'd just like a chance to prove that money can't make me happy. Me, all the time
Fawlty Towers was one of my favourite sitcoms from my childhood. Makes me laugh as much now as it did then. Pure farcical comedy. He will be very much missed.
"There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first method is far more difficult." - C.A.R. Hoare
