Achilles' Biological Findings

Achilles' Biological Findings:
(1) If a child looks like his father, that's heredity. If he
looks like a neighbour, that's environment.
(2) A lot of time has been wasted arguing over what came first
-- the chicken or the egg. It was undoubtedly the
rooster.

really weird C code to count the number of bits in a word

#define BITCOUNT(x) (((BX_(x)+(BX_(x)>>4)) & 0x0F0F0F0F) % 255)
#define BX_(x) ((x) - (((x)>>1)&0x77777777) \
- (((x)>>2)&0x33333333) \
- (((x)>>3)&0x11111111))

I mean, I read all the links, but I still can't understand a thing.

I mean, I read all the links, but I still can't understand a thing. Can anyone explain it

back in my day we didn't need fancy schmancy snooper programs.

Bagh, back in my day we didn't need fancy schmancy snooper programs. There was only enough email to keep an FBI staff of 3 busy reading through messages. We just put the FBI on our cc: and it worked on the honor's system. Sometimes the FBI would reply back if they liked what they read. Nowadays, all you young hoodlums can't do anything honest, and we need all kinds of expensive fancy equipment to keep tabs on who's doing what. -- angry old man

Our documentation manager was showing her two year old son around the office. He was introduced to me, at which time he pointed out that we
were both holding bags of popcorn. We were both holding bottles of juice. But only *he* had a lollipop.

He asked his mother, "Why doesn't HE have a lollipop?"

Her reply:

"He can have a lollipop any time he wants to. That's what it
means to be a programmer."

Under no circumstances should you mix BOFHs and lusers in the same social invitation

Under no circumstances should you mix BOFHs and lusers in the same social invitation; it distresses your BOFH guests and the stains are difficult to get out of most carpet fabrics.
