Geek Scripture


At first, there was the bit. And the bit shifted left, and the bit shifted right, and there was the byte. The byte grew into a word, and then into double word. And the developer saw the work and it was good. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

On the next day, the developer came back to the work and couldn’t figure out what he was thinking last night, and spent the whole day figuring that out.

And then Joe's comments were replaced with refactoring for clarity, ending Pierre's maintenance hell.

Just remember folks, the vast majority of comments are a code smell.

In fact, God estimated seven days (it can be that hard, he said) and then took 4 billion years to finish the job.
