Colder? One of the main roads through Crawley was well and truly flooded this morning. Some pratt in a taxi drove through the flooded road, which did for his taxi and he sat there in the water causing major congestion for miles around. The police tried to "help" (rolleyes) by placing an accident sign by the lights and slinging a length of "POLICE LINE DO NOT CROSS" tape across two posts to stop other traffic driving through. Naturally, the sign and tape was no obstacle as they simply drove around it compounding the problem that Pratt Tosspot-Dipstick caused in the first place. A 12-15 min commute took 1hr 20min as every road was clogged.

I went to looking up quotes and I noticed where language was called out PHP and Perl are explicitly mentioned in derogatory sense, much the way COBOL was many years ago.
On a different note the two quotes though that I thought were the funniest were;
"It should be noted that no ethically -trained software engineer would ever consent to write a DestroyBaghdad procedure. Basic professional ethics would instead require him to write a DestroyCity procedure, to which Baghdad could be given as a parameter."
