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.
