TGIF - terrific!

Hello, and welcome to another edition of TGIF.  This week has been cold, icy and snowing for a lot of us, but lets not forget all those living on the other side of the world enjoying a hot and sunny summer season.  Amongst other things I spent my time filling in customs forms and so forth so I can send my things on to Sydney, where I'll be for a while as from late Feb.  I am not sad to escape winter!

Without further ado:


Do not believe in miracles. Rely on them.
Inside every large program is a small program struggling to get out.
The solution to a problem changes the problem.
It works better if you plug it in.
Given any problem containing N equations, there will be N+1 unknown.


“If people never did silly things, nothing intelligent would ever get done.” (L.Wittgenstein)
“Getting information off the Internet is like taking a drink from a fire hydrant.” (M.Kapor)
“Yes, we have a dress code. You have to dress.” (S.McNealy, co-founder of Sun Microsystems)
“Computer viruses are an urban legend.” (P.Norton, 1988)

Error messages from Hex ("A Heath Robinson/Rube Goldberg-esque, magic-powered computer"):

+++ Divide By Cucumber Error. Please Reinstall Universe And Reboot +++

+++Whoops! Here comes the cheese! +++

*Blip* *Blip* *Blip* End of Cheese Error

The coolest coolest computer program ever:  Do you want one?  I really do.
