I tried reading that in 64 bit but only understood half of it.

Ralphie would be very upset at the radio right about now…

Morning all,

I’m late. Timezones, as usual. However:

Q: How is Programmer Day celebrated?
A: Anyway you want! Here are some suggestions:

Have a contest for the best binary pun / programming joke

There are 10 kinds of people in the world.
Those who understand binary, and those who don’t!

What is an Oracle DBA’s all time favourite album?
Pink Floyd - Dark SID Of The Moon.

Cheers,

And on a similar note:

How many Microsoft Engineers does it take to change a light bulb?
None. Microsoft redefine darkness as the new standard.

Hi Chris,

Nice article. Some of the bullet points did make me laugh though:

But how many Microsoft employees does it actually take to change a
lightbulb?

One dev to spend five minutes implementing
ChangeLightBulbWindowHandleEx.
One program manager to write the specification.
Note how the work is doen before the specification is completed!


At least one dev, tester and PM to brainstorm security
vulnerabilities.
I’m not convinced that this actually happens, otherwise, we wouldn’t
have Internet Explorer! :wink:

Also…let’s not forget Talk like a Pirate Day. Do we
celebrate on Friday or Monday or both…arrrrgh the choices…
Surely every Friday, regardless!

Norm. [TeamT]

MSFT and Ford both have something in common, their Explorer products should have
both been named Exploder
