dHarry...

I know what you're thinking, punk. You are thinking: "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, I forgot myself in all this excitement... but being this is a .44 Magnum the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky?... Well, do ya, punk?!

Quotes...

Furious activity is no substitute for understanding.

H. H. Williams

Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.

Robert J. Hanlon

Pointers are like jumps, leading wildly from one part of the data structure to another. Their introduction into high-level languages has been a step backward from which we may never recover.

C.A.R. Hoare

I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.

Hunter S. Thompson

A casual stroll through the lunatic asylum shows that faith does not prove anything.

Friedrich Nietzsche

If you don't like my answers, don't ask me questions!

It is better to have enough ideas for some of them to be wrong, than to be always right by having no ideas at all.

Edward de Bono
