Hello all.

Here is a good one, although not from Puppy.

"Colours can make anything look ugly."

(Found today, this hour, on the Siag web site, screenshots page,
at http://siag.nu/siag/screenshots.html, 2nd picture.)

I thought the above sentence was a roar and wanted to share it!

Hello all.

Here's a good one, I think.
Quote:
Guarantee:

Since some people are wary of using a program that has no guarantee,
I've decided to provide the following guarantee:

It is a well-known fact that any non-trivial program has bugs. If
you haven't found them, you just haven't stumbled upon the proper
combinations of actions that will cause the bugs to manifest them-
selves. Since sc stands for "Spreadsheet Calculator", and since a
spreadsheet calculator is by definition a non-trivial program, sc is
guaranteed to have bugs.

For the sake of transparency and honesty, may I suggest that we include
something similar in our PuppyLinux docs.

Indeed, anyone using Puppy long enough is guaranteed to find a bug!
(Just one! Wink )

BFN.

Hello all.

Here is one that nobody can resist: Very Happy

That sentence applies to a lot of coding, I'm afraid...

What can I say? I don't like working any harder than I have to! Laughing I worry about speed when it becomes a real problem, not just a theoretical one.

Or to quote myself from earlier in this thread:

"Performance anxiety causes premature optimization."
