Another day, another "away message"

Kid 2 and his ever-changing away messages:

Use constant names like LancelotsFavouriteColour instead of blue and assign it hex value of $0204FB. The color looks identical to pure blue on the screen, and a maintenance programmer would have to work out 0204FB (or use some graphic tool) to know what it looks like. Only someone intimately familiar with Monty Python and the Holy Grail would know that Lancelot's favorite color was blue. If a maintenance programmer can't quote entire Monty Python movies from memory, he or she has no business being a program

Teen-aged geek language

Whew...thank goodness. I thought Kid 2 had been taken over by aliens...except for the Monty Python reference of course. :~D

Monty Python is a fave around here...

My first reaction was "Huh???What language is the????", but when I clicked on the comment section, I saw that Joan had already written just that. Of course now that I know that it is 'teen-aged geek language', it makes so much more sense...not;~)
