19 Measuring programming progress by lines of code is like measuring
20 aircraft building progress by weight. -Bill Gates
22 For every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple,
23 and wrong. -H L Mencken
25 Theory is when you know something, but it doesn't work. Practice is
26 when something works, but you don't know why. Programmers combine
27 theory and practice: Nothing works and they don't know why.
