10/9    Someone please fan the flames, it's a little too cold on the
        motd today.
        \_ Hey loser, learn how to write English properly before wasting
           our time on the motd.  (Hint:  to != too, its != it's).  Typical
           FOB fuckhead.
           \_ Fixed for your flaming pleasure. I tried to introduce
              trivial yet noticiable errors in the hopes that it would
              elicit a response.

10/9    Is it just me, or it seems like C++/Java is full of the following?
        Don't laugh. I see this FREQUENTLY. Yeah, very OO.

        class foo {
                int myvar;
                getMyvar() {return myvar;}
                setMyVar(int i) {myvar = i;}

        \= At least your data is encapsulated. Combine encapsulation
           with a pattern and you will be a 311T3 00 D00D! You can
           hang with Douglas Schmidt.
        \_ Use C#.  It has virtual fields.
        \_ I'm not laughing.  This is normal.
        \_ Of course you see it frequently, it's classic OO design.  You now
           have only one place to update instead of hundreds if you need to
           change the way the variable is set (introduce range checks, change
           variable name/type, etc.).
