Top 12 Things A Klingon Programmer Would Say
12.     Specifications are for the weak and timid!
11.     This machine is a piece of GAGH! I need dual Pentium processors 
if I am to
do battle with this code!
10.     You cannot really appreciate Dilbert unless you've read it in 
the original
9.      Indentation?! -- I will show you how to indent when I indent 
your skull!

the weak.

it! Ship it,
and let them flee like the dogs they are!


All the best,
