4/9     What's the difference between a programmer and a software engineer?
        \_ programming is a specialization of engineering. A programmer, like
           any engineer, CREATE things (programs) that IMPROVE the mankind.
           However, an engineer doesn't necessarily know how to program.
        \_ programmers write code, software engineers design it
           \_ so software engineer never code, and programmers never design?
              take a rhetoric class!
        \_ software engineers can make their code run even in hostile
           environments (crappy hardware, limited memory, buggy compilers,
           tethered debuggers that make gdb look high-tech, and so on)
        \_ Hiearchy is this:
                -software engineer

4/9     Why do people keep asking inane questions in the motd?
        \_ Like your question?
        \_ Well, sure, inane to YOU, you selfish little prick.
        \_ Every time I try to use my Turing Machine to solve the "halting
           problem", it freezes up -- can't do anything with it at all.  Is
           it broken?  Should I send it back?
        \_ Why do bad things happen to good people?
        \_ Which is better -- Windows, MacOS, FreeBSD, Linux, or ULTRIX?

4/10    ASUC is an anagram for CSUA. The top ten similarities between the
        two are...
        10. Top 10 lists are really stupid.
         9. Each organization contains innumerable people who think that
            Scott Bonds is a twink.
         8. Neither organization is making money off of the ASUC store.
