    Haven't been taking your own advice about sigs have you? The third, seventh and last ones were my favorites.

    Why Software Engineers shouldn't drive

    Four Engineers are taking a rental car to a convention. The Engineering manager is driving and the other three, a software, an electrical, and a mechanical engineer are riding in the various seats. They go up to the top of a hill and begin going down, when the manager tries to use the brakes to slow down, they aren't working. Everyone is somewhat paniced but fortunately they were able to roll to a stop. Everyone gets out and kisses the ground etc. The mechanical engineer moves to look at the brakes suspecting an issue with the brake pads, the electrical engineer thinks there might be an issue with the ABS system and pops the hood to look. The Engineering manage just asks, "so what do you think?" The Software engineer just stands with his arms crossed shaking his head in disgust. The manager notices it and asks, "what's wrong?" The software engineer replies, "What are you guys doing?! Let's just get in the car and see if it happens again!"

    Heh. The Unix one is funny because I can easily see it happening in real life. Say goodbye to hours of work because of a space character in the wrong spot.

    This one is quite funny if you think about it:



    Sanitize your database inputs! LOL

    Shakespearian C

    "To be or not to be... that is the question."

    The answer is 0xff since:

    Code:
    0x2b | ~0x2b = 0xff

    as a safeguard, you can alias rm to be rm -i, so it's interactive. if it is indeed the file(s) you want to delete, stop interactive mode then run /bin/rm with the same list/pattern

    yes, it can and does happen

    [user@home ~/pics] rm -rf ./ gross*
