1 of these is correct.
2 are wrong.
1 is meaningless.

- MacOS is just a clone of BeOS that's trying too hard.
- sed and awk beat vi and emacs.
- Cats are better than dogs for sniper practice.
- Stallman is a hobbit exiled from the Shire for spreading Communist propaganda.
- When Oracle buys sun they'll smush mysql into a marmite-like paste, spread it on their toast and swallow it whole.
- Speaking of which marmite is edible.

MySQL is a piece of shit anyway.

sed and awk are great tools, but have completely different jobs than editors.

Unless you don't like getting any actual work done.

um...

Unless you were talking about ruby colored carpet ;-)

It sounds like you're referring to Why's Poignant Guide to Ruby, a guide more popular for its quirkiness than anything else. The author was pretty popular in the Ruby community as an entertaining personality.

Why yes, that sounds like exactly the title of what I tried to read. Why seems a bit full of himself.

Can't say I know too much about him personally, other than that he's been pretty popular among Rubyists for his various works. A few of his projects have been useful (I thought Try Ruby was a creative idea). He apparently prefers to keep his personal life out of things and just use his alias (why the lucky stiff). He's spoken of pretty highly when I run across references to him, though he's apparently intentionally dropped off the map these days.

Unfortunately, he espouses ruby, which thereby removes all credibility instantly.

____ Ruby, Emeralds, Diamonds, they are all pretty, but how do we get the passion going again?? Do we plan a large cook out, one honking big bonfire??
