    And you think like a programmer :). This isn't meant to be insulting (as I'm sure it might be construed, although probably not by someone who thinks like a programmer) but it occurred to me that the way you honed in on that little logical gem is pretty good evidence that you have experience thinking like a computer (although the fact that you found it significant/amusing is wonderfully human).
