We need to simplify our tax code. We need to make sure that it’s not too cumbersome for people to be able to comply with. And that they don’t end up spending more money trying to file their taxes than they do actually paying in.
Low code quality keeps haunting our entire industry. That, and sloppy programmers who don't understand the frameworks they work within. They're like plumbers high on glue.theo de raadt
I want you to understand I shall not hold you to any midaevil code of faithfulness to me nor shall I consider myself bound to you similarly.amelia earhart
It was as easy as keying in a door code. Somehow he felt that arming fusion bombs to detonate around him should have been more difficult.
Sri Yantra represents visually the replication of the “genetic code” of the first triangle in the process of creation of the multiform universe in all its complexity
It grounds secular law upon Scripture, especially upon the principle of mercy . Alfred thus located his law code in a biblical lineage. His historical anthology of legal texts explains that the nature of Christian law is a system of justice in which mercy subsists.
silver bullet (SIL-vuhr BOOL-it) noun: A quick solution to a thorny problem. [From the belief that werewolves could be killed when shot with silver bullets.] "Writing code, he (Stuart Feldman) explains, is like writing poetry: every word, each placement counts. Except that software is harder, because digital poems can have millions of lines which are all somehow interconnected. Try fixing programming errors, known as bugs, and you often introduce new ones. So far, he laments, nobody has found a silver bullet to kill the beast of complexity."
There is a sort of an unwritten code in Washington, among the underworld and the hustlers and these other guys that I am their friend.marion barry
I find if you're targeting Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X right from the start, your code will probably work anywhere else that you might try it later... Writing code that is cross-platform from the start requires more discipline, but I find it is worth the effort.ryan c. gordon
The simple fact is that code quality tends to improve as you move between platforms... non-obvious bugs on Windows become VERY obvious in the Linux port and vice versa, and thus get fixed. So even the Windows gamers will win in all of this.ryan c. gordon
Part of any serious QA is removing Perl code the same way you go over a dilapidated building you inherit to remove chewing gum and duct tape and fix whatever was kept together for real.erik naggum
I have actually programmed a fair bit in Perl, like I have C++ code published with my name on it. Other things I have tried and have no intention to do again if I can at all avoid it include smoking, getting drunk enough to puke and waste the whole next day with hang-over, breaking a leg in a violent car crash, getting mugged in New York City, or travel with Aeroflot.erik naggum
You can't trust code that you did not totally create yourself. (Especially code from companies that employ people like me.) No amount of source-level verification or scrutiny will protect you from using untrusted code.kenneth thompson
The origins and travels of our purchases remain matters of indifference, although to the more imaginative at least a slight dampness at the bottom of a carton, or an obscure code printed along a computer cable, may hint at processes of manufacture and transport nobler and more mysterious, more worthy of wonder and study, than the very goods themselves.Alain de Botton
A legal code that protects the prerogatives of the owners and is officially respected (and hence calculable) is another element.richard sandbrook
Real programmers can write assembly code in any language.larry wall
The code also assumes that it's difficult to misspell 'a' or 'b'.larry wall
It is known that Judaic, Christian, and Islamic worshippers announce “amen” at the end of a prayer , supplication , expression of thanks and praise , and even sing “Amen, Amen, Amen”. Yet few of these worshippers know that Amen was the greatest Egyptian God for over two thousand years before the birth of Jesus . Perhaps we should not fault religious leaders for their ignorance about the past because the hieroglyphic code was broken less than two hundred years ago, and Egyptologists have deciphered what was written on Egyptian tombs and temples only since the early 1900s.
Today some evidence arises that UML will more and more be used not as a specification language but as a high level programming language. This has some advantages, as if the concepts of UML are executable, they can immediately be animated and tested, or the generated code even be used as implementation. Thus UML probably will have an implementation-oriented semantics describing this animation.
Only when a disputed point has long caused bloodshed and disturbance, or when a successful invader (military or theological) insists on a change, is it necessary to draw up a code.
Almighty God hath created the mind free. All attempts to influence it by temporal punishments or burthens … are a departure from the plan of the holy author of our religion … No man shall be compelled to frequent or support any religious worship or ministry or shall otherwise suffer on account of his religious opinions or belief, but all men shall be free to profess and by argument to maintain, their opinions in matters of religion. I know but one code of morality for men whether acting singly or collectively.
Beyond 100,000 lines of code you should probably be coding in Ada.
Talk is cheap. Show me the code.
"Sharing the code just seems like The Right Thing to Do, it costs us rather little, but it benefits a lot of people in sometimes very significant ways. There are many university research projects, proof of concept publisher demos, and new platform test beds that have leveraged the code. Free software that people value adds wealth to the world."
Dan Brown has to be one of the best, smartest, and most accomplished writers in the country. The Da Vinci code is many notches above the intelligent thriller; this is pure genius.dan brown
I have committed every crime in the Indian Penal code, except murder.
