[OT] On the TimBot

Discussion in 'Python' started by Christos TZOTZIOY Georgiou, Jul 8, 2003.

  1. I am again trying to catch-up with the group (my time-sharing slices get
    longer and longer as I grow old :), so after sequentially reading
    several of TimBot's common slash-and-hack (or slash-and-wink for lamers,
    or hack-and-wink for coders, or hack-slash-star-wink!-star-slash for C
    coders) replies, I would like to address the following two warnings:

    1. To "Matrix" fans: don't ever use the line "He's only human" on the
    TimBot. It's not.
    2. To "2001 A space odyssey" fans: whenever it says "sorry", it's being
    sarcastic <wink>
    3. To "Tron" fans: yes, you could assign the name TimBit to it, but it's
    a broken Bit; what's the use of a Bit that's always true?

    PS I can't count; there are 10 kinds of people, those who grok binary
    and those who don't. <blink> <breath />
    Thanks Tim for your code and for your posts, and cheers everyone :)

    But Tim is never wrong: it's just that reality fucks up now and again.

    After long experiment it was found preferable to talking about why
    Lisp is slower than C++...
