A wife asked her husband to go to the market. "Buy one carton of milk, and if they have avocados, get six." A short time later the husband returned with half a dozen cartons of milk. "Why did you buy six?" asked the wife. Replied the husband "they had avocados."After writing logic code for the past week, I found this especially funny.
// Initialize it, cap'n!
// This is a public file.
// Everyone is welcome, nay encouraged,
// to use it and add to it.
// OK, dumkopf. You use it, you lose it.
// All the nifty display poo goes here
** utilities for manipulating the [player]'s store-string
** err, I mean the data-string
** no, wait, make that the thing-string
** **Warning** this code is god-like and perfect.
** When we work on it choirs of angels
** gather around and sing. Mortals must keep out.
** This code is so blindingly beautiful
** that your eyes will melt if you look at it.
Suddenly i'm envisioning a signpost forest springing up... signs on top of signs on top of...I gave that some thought. Well, at least from a technical standpoint.
This was incredibly helpful in finding bottlenecks, missing data and other shenanigans caused by me whilst attempting to write this code quickly. As a result of these internal announcements, I was able to find numerous bugs, squash them, and get my script running in an "as expected" manner!
