This is actually a quote by Dijkstra (sp? and I forgot his first name), and I had a similar response when I first read it (in a rather wonderful book entitled Classics in Computer Programming (I think...)). Less symbols means less code, so it's optimization, which is of incredible conceptual importance (particularly when generating code rather than writing it. I'm starting to sympathize with the poor guys who had to write the first assemblers in machine code...). Oh well, one can't expect the man to be right all the time.

    [1nickt]: But, they do have red keyboard backlighting! And gargoyles on the front, or words like "Maxxx" here and there. They know their demographic!
    [1nickt]: True gamers don;t buy Dells, HPs, or Lenovos, I think ;-)
    [ambrus]: The keyboard I bought doesn't have backlighting. I specifically had to select for that, because so many keyboards these days have lights. Why would I want lights in the keyboard? I want lights in the room, such as on the ceiling, not in the keyboard.

    [ww]: ++ all (phony labels re "gaming"
    [1nickt]: ambrus perhaps you know where the keys are?
