This quest has ended

Esteemed Monk kcott has recently proposed an excellent idea.

heretoforthwithstanding, we invite all monks to submit ideas for new monk quips!

Your quip suggestion should include the following details:

  • Intended quip location: either XP Nodelet, Chatterbox, or Monkbar (that's the page header).
  • Text of quip.
  • Optional: background & foreground colours. If you include these, be sure they are nicely contrasting.

.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    Thanks for this erzuuli and kcott,

    I'd like to see the current list of quips, just to grab the average sense and usage: I collected Monkbar quips once, but I can find it only obfuscated now.

    I'd add also some famous sentences from some respected ones.

    L*

    There are no rules, there are no thumbs..
    Reinvent the wheel, then learn The Wheel; may be one day you reinvent one of THE WHEELS.

      I think it would be better to work in vacuo; don't be biased by prior art.
      If you suggest something which is "good" but "too similar to an existing entry", we can tweak it as we go.

      Today's latest and greatest software contains tomorrow's zero day exploits.

      Reinventing the wheel

      Oh yeah, we had a nice thread about that topic over a decade ago (oh man, i'm getting old): Reinventing the wheel

      And even though this discussion was started by a much younger, dumber version of myself, i'm still happy about the decision to write my own webserver. As a matter of fact, i'm working on a commercial product right now that uses a (much improved, changed and reimagined/reinvented) version of that old project of mine as a basis.

        I get this from my kids on a regular basis, I was not expecting this here :P Well played sir.

        Rick Astley once said, "I'll lend you my copy of Snow White, but I'm never gonna give you Up!" :-)
