Old programmer wisdom:

"Fix someone's program, they're happy for a day. Teach someone to program and they're never happy again."

@socketwench Bold of them to assume fixing a program will make users happy.

@BillySmith @dredmorbius @socketwench “Unix is an operating system, OS/2 is half an operating system, Windows is a shell, and DOS is a boot sector virus”, as we used to say

@ghost_bird I only remember "Linux is for working, Mac is for graphics, Windows is for Solitaire."

@BillySmith @dredmorbius @socketwench

@socketwench thought it was "give a man a program, frustrate him for a day; teach a man to program, frustrate him for a life time"
