Re: Non-Human-Friendly Peek Results
How about this version:
99 bugs in the code that I wrote,
99 bugs in the code.
Take one down, patch it around,
9C bugs in the code that I wrote.
You might get a grin out of this ancient true story since it goes back to when cramming programs into tiny memories was a valuable skill. The company where I first worked had a legend with a rule named after him: Any program of n bytes can be rewritten in n-1 bytes.
There was a recent article in Scientific American about the Voyagers that had a nice comparison: Their computers have less memory than your key fob.
