The programmers of old were mysterious and profound.
We cannot fathom their thoughts, so all we can do is describe their appearence.

Aware, like a fox crossing the water.
Alert, like a general on the battlefiel.
Kind, like a hostess greeting her guests.
Simple, like uncarved blocks of wood.
Opaque, like black pools in darkened caves.

Who can tell the secrets of their hearts and minds ?

The answer exists only in the Tao.

[erix]: there used to be the 'razing' of towns and citoes but that now means something else in Germany (rasen=driving too fast)
[erix]: sleighting, I imagine 'Schlechten' will be a german word too - probably with same meaning as in dutch (breaking down, making useless a castle / defensive structure )
[erix]: oh... the german term is Schleifung
