I tend to have files with names like foo, bar, or often
just a single letter, but I rarely give my variables names
like that. One thing you will find in my code a lot,
however, is '# TAMARA' and '#NUKEME'. The second one is
just for lines I want to remember to remove. The first
is just a habit I picked up from a friend whose sole
comments consisted of that. It's a good thing to grep
for since it isn't likely to be in my file for any other
These are of course only 'work in progress' comments
that are removed when I finish the program.
