Programming is like sex, one mistake and you have to support it for the rest of your life. -Michael Sinz

It should be noted that no ethically-trained software engineer would ever consent to write a “DestroyBaghdad” procedure. Basic professional ethics would instead require him to write a “DestroyCity” procedure, to which “Baghdad” could be given as a parameter. -Nathaniel S. Borenstein

640kb ought to be enough for anyone. -Bill Gates

The question of whether computers can think is like the question of whether submarines can swim. -Edsger Dijkstra
