Nice link!

I may actually have mis-attributed it. Though I thought it was Knuth (and maybe it was), in this article: Structured Programming with Go Go Statements. But since it's a pdf representation of a scan, I can't easily search for the quote therein. Dijkstra did also use it here: On a Cultural Gap.

I'm going to have to re-read that Knuth article though; I was almost certain that's where I saw it first.

[marto]: Illegal_opcode
[zentara]: marto arn't those NSA secrets? :-)
[marto]: not if you keep telling people :P
[zentara]: I had to disable hyperthreading on my machine because of that.
[Discipulus]: thanks marto but... at the moment this seems a bit beyond my faculties.. ;=)
[zentara]: a thread goes into a wait state after emitting a wait to all other threads. It locks up a machine completely.
[marto]: if you mean the recent hyperthreading bug, I don't think that's NSA related?
[zentara]: s/thread/cpu/
[marto]: xkcd://538
[Discipulus]: these opcodes mentioned in the wiki pages are the same opcode perl is translated into? or is just the same term but in different fields?
