For those afflicted, what do you feel

Slight irritation (Is this really something other than a hive of unrelated dots? You sure?). As if reality was behind a shop window - you can't get it but you're not sure if you have to anyway.
Sniff | :^)

Well, we certainly will be above the average. That's because many colour blindness/weakness issues are genetically related to men only. Women simply can't get them. And AFAIK by far the most software development people are male...

- Or are these "8%" mentioned already men-only? Otherwise, it would seem a bit high to me... -

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
