So... I went downstairs while taking a break from studying and got to here about this great site! Here are a few of my fave quotes, enjoy.

"The computer allows you to make mistakes faster than any other invention, with the possible exception of handguns and tequila." Mitch Ratcliffe.

"Memory is like an orgasm. It's a lot better if you don't have to fake it." Seymore Cray, on virtual memory.

"Documentation is like sex: when it is good, it is very, very good; and when it is bad, it is better than nothing." Dick Brandon.

"Programming is an art form that fights back."

"This reminds me of a revelation I had a few years ago, after getting my first CD-ROM drive. I'd manage to misplace a CD containing a multimedia encyclopedia and eventually found it sitting on the floor under my desk. I realised then that never before in human history had it been possible to lose an entire 28 volume encyclopedia by dropping it behind a piece of furniture. Now that's what I call progress !" $rtbl_this.

"Programmers are tools for converting caffeine into code."

"Linux: find out what you've been missing while you've been rebooting Windows NT." Infoworld.

"unzip; strip; touch; finger; mount; fsck; more; yes; unmount; sleep"

"There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence." Jeremy S. Anderson

"To err is human... to really foul up requires the root password."

"19 Jan 2038 at 3:14:07 AM" The end of the word according to Unix (232 seconds after Jan 1st 1970).

"Error, no keyboard press F1 to continue."

"On the negative side, I've been getting charged for a ton of stuff I didn't order lately. On the positive side, I did win that 'Who's Got the Best Password' contest on AOL last week." Spike Donner.
