"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

Don't feel too bad. I read the replies to your question and still don't know what they are talking. However, I have already lost interest, so I will just assume it is a turn signal even though that does not make me get the point of the original post.

Speaking of cars, in the U.S., General Motors used to have a place called the Jobs Bank, before their bankruptcy. Back then, GM had much more capacity than demand; so entire shifts of people who had nothing to do would go to work at the Jobs Bank. I have heard of numbers in the 5000+ range. I believe all they were doing was sitting around and playing cards and watching TV. GM was not allowed to lay them off, because of union contracts.
In Australia, it's the Volvo drivers who are the worst - though this may have changed. Over in Canada it's Lexus drivers (all the Volvo drivers over here are ageing hippies whose only crime is driving too slowly and with a hat on).
My experience here is that Subaru has taken over Volvo's aura of iunvulnerability. WRXs excepted, of course.
Faarrrkkkk off Pete, I drive a 2001 Outback.
"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
Locally our two sets of drivers are the aforementioned BMW's and red pickup trucks (any make/model). The pickups like snagging you with their right-hand rear view mirror. I don't know why color makes a difference.
I just went through the Adobe rigmarole to test out this "Source Code Pro" font. You have to have their application running to use the "free" font! I have tested it and it is just not good enough, "Consolas" gives me a better editing environment and I don't have to sign up for endless junk-mail and a monitoring program to use it. I have uninstalled it but their is no mechanism to close or delete my "account" with Adobe. Also when I tried to unsubscribe from their emails it said "page not found" once I clicked the unsubscribe button.
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
