You Might Be A Programmer If

  1. You immediately complain that this should be subscripted as zero.

  2. Most people say "Go To Hell," but you tell people to redirect to /dev/null.

  3. By the time you've gotten here in the document, you've run Tidy or a similar app to check my X/HTML skills.

  4. The statement (0x2b||!0x2b) makes sense to you.

  5. You find 4 funny.

  6. You note with disgust that it always evaluates to true, since 0x2b != 0.

  7. Point 6 disgusts you, because under other languages than C++ (Java, per se), it would throw an exception, runtime error, etc.

  8. Both points 6 and 7 disgust you, because (0x2b||!0x2b) isn't a statement.

  9. You wonder why there's so much religious debate. After all, can't they just type man life?

  10. When you think of Blowfish, the stuff described on has no relation to what comes to mind.

  11. You can write formal grammar statements for C, C++, C#, Java, Perl, Python, PHP, HTML, any XML schema, Assembly, Obj-C, QBASIC,
    XBASIC, OO.o BASIC, StarMath, and just about anything else I could throw at you, and yet the question, "Is our children learning?" raises no red flags.

  12. You quit drinking coffee; caffeine I/Vs are easier.

  13. Your root@localhost password is the chemical formula for caffeine.

  14. You didn't know that there was a war in Iraq: too busy preparing for the next gcc compiler release.

  15. You wrote the GPL.

  1. I'm DEFINITELY not a programmer then!

    Although this applies: "(0×2b||!0×2b) makes sense to you."

  2. Samir,
    1 out of 15 isn't enough, sorry :(

    Nice name by the way :-)
    yeah I'm aware of this and not happy of the accessibility status of this blog, I promise you to work on it once I have free time.

  3. hey

    Wanna Nescafe Cup ? your suger ?

  4. Actually; 4, 5, and 6 apply ..

    That's 3/15, do I pass? :D

  5. akeed akeed none of the above applies to me..thank God and for a moment i doubted myself ..

  6. MQabbani,
    YES! I'd love to have nescafe cup with you dude

    no but you are welcome to join Programmers friends association

    YES YES! you should thank God many times for not being a programmer else you wouldn't have this great sense of humour

  7. as homer would say, "borrrring"

  8. Samir, (0×2b||!0×2b) is a code form of the Shakespearean line "To be, or not to be...". This is why number 8 is funny (to programmers), because this programming statement is really a question.

  9. Eddie,
    I Agreeeeeeeeee


  10. Philix,
