The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Letters Re: Why Microsoft makes a complete hash out of C#
Re: Why Microsoft C# is 'paralysed or dead'

A double dose of Flames for this Week.

These two erudite contributions were prompted by the ongoing debate about whether C# is really a pound, hash or a legitimate note. An etymological diversion, as Drew called it, but one that drew a huge mailbag. These two bring this correspondence to a close.


Subject: Why Microsoft C# is 'paralysed or dead'

Dear Drew Cullen,

I have read most of this article and found the most of it to be
moronic, repetitive, useless, missinformed, and overall boring. The
program you are refering to is known as C plus plus in the states, the #
sign is the significant of two + signs put together.You, my friend, are
a moron, and should never write another article for as long as you live.
That or move onto complaining about things more on your level of
thought, like shiny objects and the lack of them in the world today, and
leave the oh so sophisticated world of computer programming to those of
us who use it as something other than a subject to complain about. Also,
in regards to the lengthy and also moronic article that Tux Racer
responded to with "Who the fuck cares" (we're all adults, right? no
cencorship needed) i would have to agree with him, nobody really gives a
flying fuck over what the # key should be replaced by or what it should
be called so as not to be confused with the "all important" british
doller, arent you supposed to be using euro dollars anyway?

Sincerely
Mafekire


One can only hope that your air passage is blocked by some type of sausage
link for a sufficient amount of time to damage your brain to an extent that
you can no longer properly operate your keyboard. If this were to happen
then perhaps you might be able to write some jibberish more entertaining
that this peice of well crafted british "humor". The only way that the
article would inspire some type of giggle or chuckle in the deepest bowels
of my psyche, would be if it were to cause some type of international
incident where as Heir Gates is horribly offended and demands for your head
on a silver platter, and gets it.

I hope your piss ass island sinks, or possibly the scotish take over and the
small number of puffs that inhabit the country FUCK YOU TO DEATH.

Rob
