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.  Point 3 annoys you, since this document is obviously plaintext without html formatting.


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


6.  You find 5 funny.



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


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


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


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


11.  Point 10 disgusts you, because your PDP-10 does not have man pages.


12.  When you think of Blowfish, the stuff described on www.blowfish.com has no relation to what comes to mind.


13.  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.


14.  You wonder why point 13 is making a reference to John Kerry.


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


16.  Your [email protected] password is the chemical formula for caffeine.


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


18.  You wrote the GPL.


19.  You think a "pipe dream" involves bash scripting.


20.  Point 19 disgusts you, since zsh is so much more powerful.

القضاء: لا دليل على أن مقتحمي الكونغرس خططوا لقتل مشرعين

أكد محققو وزارة العدل الأمريكية أنهم لم يجدوا حتى الآن أي دليل على أن أنصار دونالد ترامب الذين هاجموا مبنى الكونغرس الأسبوع الماضي خططوا لاحتجاز مسؤولين منتخبين وقتلهم. يأتي ذلك في الوقت الذي أُوقفت فيه الشرطة، الجمعة، رجلا مسلّحا في واشنطن خلال محاولته عبور إحدى نقاط التفتيش في محيط مبنى الكونغرس حيث ستقام الأربعاء مراسم تنصيب جو بايدن. في ذات الوقت أفادت شبكة NBC الأمريكية، بأن مكتب التحقيقات الفيدرالي يحقق في إمكانية تمويل حكومات أو جماعات اقتحام مبنى الكونغرس. وقالت مصادر للشبكة: "المكتب يحقق في مدفوعات "بيتكوين" بقيمة 500 ألف دولار، يبدو أنه تم تحويلها من قبل مواطن فرنسي، لشخصيات ومجموعات رئيسية يمينية قبل اندلاع أعمال الشغب". وفي جلسة استماع في محكمة أريزونا بشأن اعتقال أحد مثيري الشغب جاكوب تشانسلي الذي يؤمن بنظرية المؤامرة ومن أتباع الحركة اليمينية المتطرفة "كيو-آنون"، تراجع المدعون الفيدراليون عن اتهامات سابقة بأن أنصار ترامب كانوا يخططون "لاحتجاز مسؤولين منتخبين وقتلهم" في هجوم السادس من كانون الثاني/ يناير في واشنطن. ع

Saddam's novel to be published next week

AMMAN, Jordan: Saddam Hussein's family will publish next week a novel written by the ousted Iraqi leader before the US-led war on Iraq, his daughter said on Friday. "Ekhroj minha ya mal'un" whose title could be translated into "Get out, damned one" tells the story of a man called Ezekiel who plots to overthrow a town's sheik, but is defeated in his quest by the sheik's daughter and an Arab warrior. The story is apparently a metaphor for a Zionist-Christian plot against Arabs and Muslims. Ezekiel is meant to symbolize the Jews. Raghad Saddam Hussein said her father finished the novel on March 18, 2003 -- a day before the US-led war on Iraq began -- and had expressed a wish to publish the book under his name. The three other novels he wrote were simply signed "Its author." "It was my father's will to publish this book," Raghad said in a telephone interview.
