REAL programmers spend more time writing taglines than coding.
GR> þ REAL programmers write self-modifying code.
As you can see, our coders (and others) have amassed quite a
selection of taglines dealing with the differences between a REAL coder and a
pansy-assed weekend code dabbler, ranging in extremes from the implicitly
sexual to the masochistic to the stereotypical to the (gasp) humorous.
Commentary from mist members is included, as these are all extracted
from REAL messages. As you can see below, Grim Reaper suggested compiling
(ba-doom CHING!) a list of all of these taglines and releasing it to the
world. As such, we have done so. Blame him.
DC> ... Real programmers use COPY CON program.exe
GR> þ Real programers use EDLIN to create Windows applications.
DC> Woo.. that's pushing it a bit far.
DC> ... Real programmers use an IBM XT 8086 to write Windows applications
ME> real programmers don't program for windows.
ME> windows programming ... oxymoron. =)
GR> ouch... is that even possible... being an XT class ?
DC> ... Nothing is impossible for a 'Real Programmer'
GR> þ Real programmers have keyboard dents in their foreheads.
DC> ... Real programmers don't even need a computer to do their work.
SE> i used to write code on scrap paper while bored in school ;)
GR> þ Real programmers can't do code while wearing a tie!
GR> Add it to your collection of real programmer's tagline. Hm,
GR> Cthulu should capture this and put it in next pack's Kithe =8)
GR> ... Real programmers can't do code while wearing a tie!
DC> ... Real programmers aren't accountants!
GR> þ Real programmers have a FUNCTION() in life.
DC> ... Real programmers hate insects and bugs.
DC> ... Real programmers don't carry screw drivers.
DC> ... Real programmers carry around RAID and insect repellant.
ETO>... Real programmers use TEST instead of CMP.
GR> þ Real Programmers Practice Safe HEX.
DC> ... A real programmer's girlfriend wears a G$.
GR> ... C Programmers do it with models!
And as an adult-only aside from our strictly computer-oriented bad
taglines, we also decided to share a few... different taglines and comments
for the alternative Kithe-reader.
KU> hahaha. besides, what's wrong with vaginal sex?
Remember, it all started when Grail pleaded for more original ANSIs,
of people having anal sex and the like.
CT> Not hot enough, not tight enough, and not smelly enough.
GR> 1. move a little... friction generates heat
GR> 2. get a bigger dick then... heh.. ;)
GR> 3. who wants it to smell!!???
GR> ... If sex is a pain in the butt, you're doing it wrong.
CT> ... Sex is dirty, but only when it's done right.
GR> heh.. =]
GR> ... "Sex is better than reading; no overdue fines."
CT> ... "It's been so long since I've had sex I can't even remember who gets
CT> tied up..."
