    When Donald Trump speaks, I've heard it all... (at least all I need to hear).

    There is only one story, and it is the Source Code of the Universe.

    Unfortunately, it's written in Ook! with no comments or documentation of any kind. :-)

    Just another Perl hooker - My clients appreciate that I keep my code clean but my comments dirty.

    Imagine if you could listen to the life stories of all 100 billion people that have ever lived. How many repeats would there be? How many distinctly unique?


    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority". The enemy of (IT) success is complexity.
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice. Suck that fhit

      Definitely should use a hash for this solution...


      *My* tenacity goes to eleven...
      How many distinctly unique?

      As many as there are unique snowflakes.

    Voted "Other" just to get a participation award of the non-existent kind...

    Consider that almost everyone has a different version of the xmas story. Many of us will have had a Santa until we're ten and wise to it.

    My version has the three magi in the stars, pointing somewhere when Orion, the one and only "hero" of this story, sets during the winter solstice. They also point to Aldebaran, leading the trek over the longest night of the year in the northern hemisphere, with Sirius, the Dog Star, trailing behind. It seems ludicrous to me that stars would be stationary in an east-west way, as if in geosynchronous orbit.
