in reply to Falling for the same trap since 1942

I'm glad to see the remark in italic Obviously, session objects... since the poor thing is merely the messenger, not the message so to speak. The real villain here has been around a good deal longer than since 1942. After all Ada Augusta, Lord Byron's daughter allowed for the possibility of bad coding very nearly a century earlier (well perhaps not directly, but to her the whole point of the Analytical Engine was to avoid the error-prone nature of calculations done by hand)! And that is the thing to obsess about, not it's many symptoms. Not to say that you should ignore them---as any diagnostician will tell you symptoms are damn handy but if they are all you fix then you never really speak to the cause of the disease now do you!

[erix]: yeah, scanning pre-loaded. I wouldn't have it any other way. As I say, my attention is a rare commodity, jealously guarded.
[erix]: ok, ok. happy pipe-dreams :P
[shmem]: have a good time inside your information bubble.
[erix]: perhaps we can have common hindsight at these thing in a few years time
