As a tiny example of this, the syntax for "if" statements. And don't get me started about data type and the other person (who is pretending they're about to lick my belly button) isn't anyone you know. It's an old picture. The idea it represents is sort of a "hey baby I'm gopher dancing all sexy in a towel and the database data types. Honey, you're just plain fucked up.

I mean, I strive to decrease the entropy of the side effects of its design: If you're playing tracks out of your library, which is what it does if you just poke at it (I don't read manuals, let alone follow instructions), it just keeps playing whatever's next on the list as it's currently sorted. This is such a great improvement over my old (clean) socks and buying all identical little black socks. But the little rascals fade unequally, so I e-mailed it to her. She sent this in reply: Urban decay can be left to libraries.

Doubless, you are familiar with the prolific user, from the early days of Usenet, who went by the name "Mark V. Shaney"?

No, not even in the Kibological sense.

I think I understand his art. And am therefore doomed!

Thanks for the pointer. I have the oddest feeling that I recognize intuitively the corpus he's drawing from -- Usenet at that particular time. I wonder if he had an algorithm.

Ummm... the name... it's a pun. And a hint. Look at it again.

(P.S. These are definitely not the opinions of my favorite poem IN
FRENCH.)

*facepalm* Somehow I breezed right over that one.
