Discussions that sometimes happen on obscure IRC channels...

From: Dan Lyke 
A "I have to convince my boss to write less code" thread on an IRC
channel has devolved into discussing how to tie php-mode.el activity
and "git commit" hooks to trigger playing sound files that'd agitate

=============================================================== From: Eric Wolf ------------------------------------------------------ Ahh... many are the memories of returning to work on Monday morning and finding that Mike spent the weekend cranking out some barely operational system which the customer already has it in production.... Mike's greatest strength is his ability to rapidly produce workable solutions to customer's problems. It's also his greatest weakness. -Eric -=--=---=----=----=---=--=-=--=---=----=---=--=-=- Eric B.

=============================================================== From: Eric Wolf ------------------------------------------------------ What? You don't think having all of your code in a single function that takes no parameters because everything is a global is poor C code? At least he could beat the fee. Oh wait... that worked out as well as his batting. -Eric -=--=---=----=----=---=--=-=--=---=----=---=--=-=- Eric B. Wolf 720-334-7734

=============================================================== From: gary hasty ------------------------------------------------------ Yeah. That worked out great for Dave.

=============================================================== From: Sean Brewer ------------------------------------------------------ wut

=============================================================== From: Eric Wolf ------------------------------------------------------ Sorry. Inside joke from back in the day when there was a game company in Chattanooga that had exclusive rights to the NFL trademarks before Madden. -Eric -=--=---=----=----=---=--=-=--=---=----=---=--=-=- Eric B.
