I believe it's called a "nerd roll".

Archaeologists Unearth Prehistoric Pentium Chip



This stunningly well preserved archaeological find was dug up from the frozen tundra near Tappleytown, Canada. The processor measures about 4.5 feet (1.4 meters) square. Carbon dating tests indicate an origin in the Permian period. The CPU is believed to have once run an operating system called DimetroDOS, a forerunner of CP/M and, in turn, Windows 7. The complete structure is, of course, entirely made of wood. It appears to be an early from of particle-board -- an amalgamation of many wood chips -- leading to speculation the processor may have been highly multi-core in nature. Scientists continue to dig in the area searching for traces of a mainboard.

just saw dennis richie then talked to myself .. how the herd deplored steve jobs and forgot about that great man
mourning too like praising is dollar-bound

is it just because people no longer think in and about c ?
maybe the media is the sole cause .. media alzheimer .. but parial alzheimer since apple-man is never let down postmortem and antemortem
am I mistaken here ?

Important Programming Truths ..

If it compiles, it works.

If it compiles, it's correct.

If it runs, it doesn't have any bugs.

If it doesn't have any immediately obvious bugs, it's perfect.

If a bug doesn't show, it doesn't exist.

If it seems to work, it works.

Doing something right is easy. Avoiding errors only takes a bit of concentration.

The shorter the source code, the faster the program.

It's obvious how to optimize a program.

Prorammers don't make mistakes.

Run-time errors don't occur.

Users don't make mistakes.

I don't make mistakes.

Errors of any kind are rare.

Error handling can be done in version 2.

It's OK to crash on bad input.

It's OK to give incorrect output on bad input.

Portability isn't useful.

All the world's a VAX. Or, these days, an MS-DOS box

The length of the feature list is important.

Speed is good, features are better.

Slowness can be fixed in hardware.

The bigger a program is, the better it is.

Random changes to a program fix bugs.

Testing takes only a short while.

Finding bugs is easy. Fixing bugs is trivial.

Bug-fixes don't need to be tested.

Trivial changes of any kind don't need to be tested.

The first approach, idea, or version is always the best.

A 1% crash rate is actually pretty darn good.

Code is self-evident. Comments aren't needed.

Comments are meant for people other than the original author of the code.

Undocumented features are fun and useful.

It can always be fixed in the next version.

Surprised users are happy users.

Demonstrating for clients is the best debugging method.

Default Funny story...to me at least

So my daughters laptop won't boot and it looks like we are going to need to reinstall windows. But, being that she has been play Skyrim everyday this summer, I wanted to try and get her saved games off the disk just incase.

So, I use a live rescue disk, so that I could mount the windows disk and ftp the files to my workstation with the 2TB data drive.

So, about 30 minutes into copying the save files over and seeing save number1982 go by, I decided to ask her how many saved games she had.

7,752 saves...is the answer. The good news is that she tells me that she only needs from save 4426!

Each saved games is between 7 and 12MB in size. I'm up to 30GB of Skyrim saves so far!
