TEN COMMANDMENTS OF COMPUTER
"The nice thing about computers is that they will do exactly
what you tell them to do. Unfortunately, they will do it exactly, so you
need to get your instructions exactly right"
--David J. Eck, The Most Complex Machine, p.173
"A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any
invention in human history,
with the possible exception of handguns and tequila."
-- Mitch Ratliffe, Technology Review, April 1992
