    And just to follow up without a snark (which I am aware I am overly fond of):

    " Come to my arms, my beamish boy! O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"

    (And yeah, that's one of the few poems I can recite by heart.)

    If Douglas Adams really did say that, he never programmed a computer in his life. Because I was in the 1990s (and still am), and trust me - most of us had our code fixed long before you Boomer commentariat ever got your knickers in a twist about an ex-problem.
    There’s tons of quotes out there about crappy programmers.

    To me a lush carpet of pine needles or spongy grass is more welcome than the most luxurious Persian rug.
