  • 12/11 09:55:59 Sergio: Oh, nice. My bad for not using threads or something to make the convo easier to follow :)
  • 12/11 12:23:00 Malia: I hate threads.
  • 12/11 13:05:36 Ruthie: What about needles?
  • 12/11 13:16:14 Dolores: You threads! love
  • 12/11 13:19:38 Carri: `Some people, when confronted with a problem, think, 'I know, I'll use threads' - and then two they hav erpoblesms.`
  • 12/11 13:21:16 Carri: I also have some UDP jokes, but you might not get them.
  • 12/11 13:23:27 Carri: `A programmer puts two glasses on his bedside table before going to sleep. A full one, in case he gets thirsty, and an empty one, in case he doesn’t.`

  • 12/11 13:24:30 Dolores:
    The brakes failed and the car careened down the road out of control. 
    Half way down the driver managed to stop the car by running it against the embankment narrowing avoiding going over a cliff. 
    They all got out, shaken by their narrow escape from death, but otherwise unharmed. 
    The manager said "To fix this problem we need to organize a committee, have meetings, and through a process of continuous improvement, develop a solution." 
    The engineer said "No that would take too long, and besides that method never worked before. 
    I have my trusty pen knife here and will take apart the brake system, isolate the problem and correct it." 
    The programmer said "I think you're both wrong! 
    I think we should all push the car back up the hill and see if it happens again."
  • 12/11 13:25:16 Ezekiel: A programmer's roommate once asked him, "While you're at the store, pick up some eggs?" He never returned.
  • 12/11 13:27:13 Dolores: My _favorite_ programming joke is still "There are only two hard things in computer science: naming things, cache invalidation, and off-by-one errors."
  • 12/11 13:27:57 Carri: I've seen a variation of that one that I just told my kids.. A wife tells her programmer husband, "While you're at the store get a gallon of milk, if they have eggs get a dozen." so he comes back with 12 gallons of milk.
  • 12/11 13:29:01 Ruthie: Computers are sarcastic assholes.
  • 12/11 15:36:28 Malia: My instructor in school said this one.... There are two things to remember with arrays: 1) they start at 0.
  • 12/11 15:46:23 Vanesa: When I realized that historic centuries are simply zero-indexed, they finally made sense to me. (e.g. we’re in the 21st century now, but our “century index” is 20)
