Miscellaneous Information


"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
