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.

اهم التطورات العلمية في العام ٢٠١٩

Dear Microsoft : It's over. Our relationship just hasn't been working for a while, and now, this is it. I'm leaving you for another Operating system. I know this isn't a good time--you're down with yet another virus. I do hope you feel better soon--really, I do--but I, too, have to move on with my life. Fact is, in the entire time I've known you, you seem to always have a virus or an occasional worm. You should really see a doctor. That said, I just can't continue with this relationship any longer. I know you say you'll fix things, that next time it'll go better--but that's what you said the last time--and the time before that. Each time I believed you. Well, not any longer. You cheater! The truth is there's nothing more you can say to make things better. I know about your secret marriage to patent. You say you two are not seeing each other anymore, but I just don't believe it. You say you can live without patent, and I've heard that
