I'm not exactly sure what you mean by 'the machine that goes Ping',
in reply to Re: Java is the machine that goes "Ping!"
in thread Java is the machine that goes "Ping!"
It's a Monty Python reference. In this context it refers to his management saying a certain technology has to be used even though he perceives them to not know what they're talking about. Keyword is "perceives." They could very well be thinking of thousands of important points that he hasn't even begun to consider.
Perhaps the poster is falling into the same trap he accuses management of?
