Things over heard from Klingon programmers
Perhaps it is a good day to die! I say we ship it.
Specifications are for the weak and timid!
This machine is a piece of GAGH! I need dual Pentium processors if I am to do battle with this code!
You cannot really appreciate Dilbert unless you've read it in the original Klingon.
Indentation?! - I will show you how to indent when I indent your skull!
What is this talk of 'release'? Klingons do not make software 'releases'. Our software 'escapes' leaving a bloody trail of designers and quality assurance people in its wake.
Klingon function calls do not have 'parameters' - they have 'arguments' - and they ALWAYS WIN THEM.
Debugging? Klingons do not debug. Our software does not coddle the weak.
I have challenged the entire quality assurance team to a Bat-Leth contest. They will not concern us again.
A TRUE Klingon Warrior does not comment his code!
By filing this bug report you have challenged the honor of my family. Prepare to die!
You question the worthiness of my code? I should kill you where you stand!
Our users will know fear and cower before our software! Ship it! Ship it and let them flee like the dogs they are!
See how Microsystems Software fired an employee who went to the hospital for treatment of a work related injury. Even after paying over $140874.80 Mattel, Microsystems, and The Learning Company used a baseless libel claim to try to shut down this site. Now they demand an apology. See how Mattel, MSI, and TLC is now the subject of a $48,595,103.77 lawsuit because they tried to silence this website using a frivolous libel counterclaim.
