    10% means nothing. 10% is the difference between a good and bad chipset. If
    10% is all that important we all better run out and get the next model
    processor. Who upgrades to a 2.2 when they got a 2.0?

    Dude, you are truly a moron. "offense" was not taken at all nor has ever
    been. After a few beers anything sounds funny, especially when the joke
    is on me....wait.....what the **** are you talking about? Me....offense....I
    think not. Joke on me, well for gods sake I hope you can do better because
    the way I see it you are a ****ing idiot. This is pathetic...this is all
    you have???

    >10% means nothing.

    Spoken like a true VB dev. 10% is 10% and it means a whole lot. Let's consider
    the amount of time it takes to process a request at 5PM peak time vs. 12
    midnight. 10% difference....10000 users....mucho difference. Shut your
    trap and go back to your desktop application. You know nothing about performance
    when you make comments like this. NO you actually know nothing!!!

    >10% is the difference between a good and bad chipset.

    I would hope that when you make a challenge to a "guru" C developer he would
    know the difference. Again, you are truly an idiot.

    Look you ignorant moron...you make a statement like that about a C dev "guru"
    doing some perf vs. vb and you expect us to not assume you were talking the
    same hardware??? Ok, here you go, assembly on a 166 pentium vs a 2.1 GHZ
    pentium with VB... which will run faster??? You are a ****ing idiot.

    Really? So when you have not taken offense you tell people to shut up and
    call them an idiot. Knock, knock, anyone home? Thought not.

    Um, no I was not. I was saying that your behaviour was similar to that of a
    racist, I was not saying you were a racist.

    *** I wonder why some african americans think that just because they are
    african american they can not possibly be a racist. Whether you are a
    racist or not has nothing to do with your own color.

    Re: Real Programmers


    Guide to computer languages
    The proliferation of modern programming languages (all of which seem to have
    stolen countless features from one another) sometimes makes it difficult
    to remember what language you're currently using. This handy reference is
    offered as a public service to help programmers who find themselves in such
    a dilemma.

    TASK: Shoot yourself in the foot.

    C: You shoot yourself in the foot.

    C++: You accidentally create a dozen instances of yourself and shoot them
    all in the foot. Providing emergency medical assistance is impossible since
    you can't tell which are bitwise copies and which are just pointing at others
    and saying, "That's me, over there."

    FORTRAN: You shoot yourself in each toe, iteratively, until you run out of
    toes, then you read in the next foot and repeat. If you run out of bullets,
    you continue with the attempts to shoot yourself anyways because you have
    no exception-handling capability.

    Pascal: The compiler won't let you shoot yourself in the foot.

    Ada: After correctly packing your foot, you attempt to concurrently load
    the gun, pull the trigger, scream, and shoot yourself in the foot. When you
    try, however, you discover you can't because your foot is of the wrong type.


    COBOL: Using a COLT 45 HANDGUN, AIM gun at LEG.FOOT, THEN place ARM.HAND.FINGER
    on HANDGUN.TRIGGER and SQUEEZE. THEN return HANDGUN to HOLSTER. CHECK whether
    shoelace needs to be re-tied.

    LISP: You shoot yourself in the appendage which holds the gun with which
    you shoot yourself in the appendage which holds the gun with which you shoot
    yourself in the appendage which holds the gun with which you shoot yourself
    in the appendage which holds the gun with which you shoot yourself in the
    appendage which holds the gun with which you shoot yourself in the appendage
    which holds...

    FORTH: Foot in yourself shoot.

    Prolog: You tell your program that you want to be shot in the foot. The program
    figures out how to do it, but the syntax doesn't permit it to explain it
    to you.

    BASIC: Shoot yourself in the foot with a water pistol. On large systems,
    continue until entire lower body is waterlogged.

    Visual Basic: You'll really only appear to have shot yourself in the foot,
    but you'll have had so much fun doing it that you won't care.

    HyperTalk: Put the first bullet of gun into foot left of leg of you. Answer
    the result.

    Motif: You spend days writing a UIL description of your foot, the bullet,
    its trajectory, and the intricate scrollwork on the ivory handles of the
    gun. When you finally get around to pulling the trigger, the gun jams.

    APL: You shoot yourself in the foot, then spend all day figuring out how
    to do it in fewer characters.

    SNOBOL: If you succeed, shoot yourself in the left foot. If you fail, shoot
    yourself in the right foot. Unix: % ls foot.c foot.h foot.o toe.c toe.o %
    rm * .o rm:.o no such file or directory % ls %

    Concurrent Euclid: You shoot yourself in somebody else's foot.

    370 JCL: You send your foot down to MIS and include a 400-page document explaining
    exactly how you want it to be shot. Three years later, your foot comes back
    deep-fried.

    Paradox: Not only can you shoot yourself in the foot, your users can, too.


    Access: You try to point the gun at your foot, but it shoots holes in all
    your Borland distribution diskettes instead.

    Revelation: You're sure you're going to be able to shoot yourself in the
    foot, just as soon as you figure out what all these nifty little bullet-thingies
    are for.

    Assembler: You try to shoot yourself in the foot, only to discover you must
    first invent the gun, the bullet, the trigger, and your foot.

    Modula2: After realizing that you can't actually accomplish anything in this
    language, you shoot yourself in the head.

    VB.NET: Since you're all VB developers it wouldn't work. You'd all be shot
    dead before you hit the ground. They'd drop you in and you'd be all pretty,
    with nice features, talking about how you can do anything the SEALs can do,
    but you'd be moving really, really, really slow with no concept of what is
    actually going on behind Baghdads walls. The marines would actually use you
    guys as decoys. You'd be all flamboyant
    and talking amongst yourselves(in a very loud voice I might add) about how
    great you are and how VB can save the rest of the world in a RAD(ou"R" "A"rmy
    "D"oes OO) fashion more so than any other army(put language here) and your
    army is so much larger than all the others that you could dominate anyone.
    About then, "BAM", Sarin, all over you. About that time you remember you
    found out what atropine was and how to administer the shot, but you in all
    your VB wisdom forgot how to remove it and load the syringe because that
    is under the covers, I didn't need to know that to make it work. ****. Attrition
    at its best - a few million VB programmers gone. Thanks Saddam.

    You shoot yoursef in the foot. The bullet has automatically ricochet control
    to ensure that you don't shoot anyone else accidentally. Your foot
    automatically receives emergency medical assistance. As long as you aren't
    ridiculously overweight[1*], all is well.

    VB.NET is about the same I would imagine. Unless it wouldn't let you play
    russian roulette with your sea-loving friends.

    Not to be accused of being a "blob wannabe", although 10% may not be significant
    to you, it may be significant to someone else---like the user. Maybe the
    reason blob makes $108,000 per annum is because he understands this isssue
    better than you do.

    10% slower, means 10% more time waiting for your software to show up on my
    desktop. If I work in a high-volume call-center, that can mean a 10% reduction
    in my ability to handle calls . . . even if I'm using the fastest hardware
    available. If my business depends on how well I can process customer service
    issues, then 10% is significant.

    Tell me how happy you would be to hear from your MD that Drug A causes 10%
    more deaths than Drug B, but that's only "trivial"? How happy would you be
    if your 401k account is going to make 10% less money this year, but that's
    "insignificant"?

    You might not like the way that blob challenges such a statement, but he
    does have a valid point.
