An ignoramus speaking to his sycophants. Not even worth to click the youtube link.

The C-language makes it so easy to have buffer overflows that are arguably the source of multi millions of damage. So let's trash C and go back to the good old slide rule and pencil and paper.

Any programmer worth his salt can write bad code in any language.


A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James
