I have been looking over some of my multitude of older threads and have come to the conclusion that although I don't work in IT I am officially a programmer. You might well ask how I came to this conclusion. Well, it has to do with the ratio of word to spelling mistakes and grammatical faux pas. In my early posts I was running at about 1 spelling error per 100 words now that has been ramped up to 1 in ten. I believe that the point at which you officially become a programmer is when you can no longer spell 1 word in 15 correctly. Similarly my grammer has suffered a severe blow, maybe fatal. With that in mind I am proud to say:

	good	; because it favorable over bad code

job ; because you worked at it ;)
I see it as a form of low level optimization.

All wit h3l ett ers

Is nice to see that you dont work on IT, but you are a programmer and know what are you doing, I have a question what is your 'natural' work???

Nice day.

Interesting work, I was remembering a movie, now I remember what was the name. "Pretty Woman" was the name, your work is like that?.

If is I have the curiosity (by the movie) you can drive good your car?? ;), I have other question what was the 'thing' that move on the world of programming?.

Nice day.

No not like Pretty Woman, they are corporate raiders, they put companies into bankruptcy, I just tell the receiver how much some things (mostly mining equipment) are worth and try to find places to sell it.

Similarly you count as a mathematician when noone can read your writing.

damn, you know sometimes i can't even decypher my own writing.

When you can't read your own writing you have graduated from Programmer to Guru :grin:

Actually those pics are over a year old and for some reason my writings improved alot since then.

I tend to be pretty good at reading my own stuff, but if I try to read words in isolation (covering the sentence/paragraph) it can be very tricky at times :rolleyes: .

Seriously the only writing i really understand is when im writing some sort of algorithm on paper while im in school doing nothing. the opcodes and operands are real easy to understand for the most part =).

Writing? Is that what you do with pens and you hand on a paper? :confused:
