Knowledge has to be improved, challenged, and increased constantly, or it vanishes. - Peter F. Drucker
This is the entire set of quotes used on the site, they draw from a text file, the script is simple and stupid, like me. The script comes before the quotes, incase anyone wants to include random quotes somewhere. No database, no perl, just html, php and a textfile. Surely not elegant, but simple.
People use the term pragmatic too much, it is not a part of pragmatism to be wasteful, that's beurocracy. Pragmatism is about approaching things logically, in a straight-forward, matter-of-fact, direct means. No bouncing around with multiple options, but taking the right path with things going properly. Dropping minor needs for greater goals, taking the bull by the horns and leading it. It is about getting things done right, rather than just getting things done.<? $r_array=file('quotes.txt'); shuffle($r_array); echo $mQuotePath; echo $r_array; ?>
There's an important difference between doing things right and doing the right thing. - Unknown source, attributed to both Samuel Clemens and Peter F. Drucker
Knowledge has to be improved, challenged, and increased constantly, or it vanishes. - Peter F. Drucker
Ah, but simple is easy to use. Unfortunately people that choose not to read don't understand how easy it is, that's the problem. Some users just want it so complex that it does things for them, making it hard to do things on their own and impossible to do things that are complex in an easy manner.
A round peg may not be best to put into a square hole. It could fit into a hole bigger than it, or with enough force, into a smaller hole, but it's not the right fit, the hole should have a square peg that fits correctly. Evaluating both your task and what your tool is able to do is needed before attempting it. If you're going to put things together yourself, try for a jewel bearing situation, where everything fits nicely, peg-to-hole, with as little friction as possible.
Some say that a wise man does not piss into the wind, this is foolishness, as the true wise man pisses into the wind, rather than against it.
This pyramid shape is very compelling and leads one to pontificate saad.
Ideal is the beacon. Without ideal, there is no secure direction; without direction, there is no life. - Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy
Once upon a time, organic meatbags bred out of control and filled the galaxy. There are different meatbags across different planets, all bumping into each other. They talk a great deal and threaten each other for various reasons, mostly involving mating, survival, and resources. It is really quite tiresome. - HK-47, protocol droid
In the beginning the universe was created. This made a lot of people very angry and is widely considered as a bad move. - The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
NDA's bad. Freedom good. Blobs suck. - Jack J. Woehr
In my many years I have come to the conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more is a congress. - John Adams
I'm bringin' sexy back. - Justin Timberlake
It is unbecoming for young men to utter maxims. - Aristotle
Does it really matter what these affectionate people do so long as they dont do it in the streets and frighten the horses! - Beatrice Stella Tanner Campbell
Peace be upon you. - Abu al-Qasim Muhammad, merchant
Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without. - Siddartha Gautama, prince
I wish there was a knob on the TV to turn up the intelligence. There's one called brightness, but it doesn't work. - Eugene P. Gallagher
In a Russian tragedy, everybody dies. In a Russian comedy, everybody dies too. But they die happy. - Barry Farber
Anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job. - Douglas Adams
Most people are bothered by those passages of Scripture they do not understand, but the passages that bother me are those I do understand. - Samuel Clemens
Free software doesn't have to be GPLed, it could be anything that is free, from the public domain to the CDDL, it's all free. One need not suck RMS off in order to make it free. - Natalia Gorbski
Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. - Benjamin Franklin
It never troubles the wolf how many the sheep may be. - The Aeneid by Virgil
Flattery looks like friendship, just as a wolf looks like a dog. - Nordic proverb
Whether the bear beats the wolf or the wolf beats the bear, the rabbit always loses. - The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan
Regardless of size, even the smallest of evils remains evil, to select it is still to stand with evil.
If you do not object to something, you accept it. If you work with it, support it even, that is acceptance. Whether or not you like it does not come into play, you've already accepted it.
One cannot propigate altruism, it is no longer an act of charity when you are forced into the act. The GPL is a system of reciprocation, not altruism.
How something is used does not effect how free it is, it is the restrictions imposed upon its usage that does.

Some would describe a glass which holds 50 percent of its potential yield as, "half empty," some would call it, "half full," I would call it, "twice as large as it should be."
Racism is not the right word, it's not a matter of race, it's selfism, you are not enough like myself and I feel insecure in my self. Therefore the component most unlike my self in you is what I hate. Language, race, religion, sexual preference, whatever, it's all the same, people will find something to hate over, something that differs the self from the other, make up their own differences if they can't really find them, a la Shelbyville/Springfield.
Madame, I may be a young man, but I assure you I am a curmudgeon at heart! And you boy! I may be a curmudgeon, but at least I am not a penis in a suit!

You can't have thousands of people contributing and achieve a high standard. - Bill Joy
Given a choice between OpenBSD being a small community of devoted, hard working members, vs. The Choice of Dweebs Everywhere, I think most OpenBSD users would prefer to be a small community.

Upon this, one has to remark that men ought either to be well treated or crushed, because they can avenge themselves of lighter injuries, of more serious ones they cannot; therefore the injury that is to be done to a man ought to be of such a kind that one does not stand in fear of revenge. - Niccolo Machiavelli, Chapter 3, Il Principe
Hence it comes that all armed prophets have been victorious, and all unarmed prophets have been destroyed. - Niccolo Machiavelli, Chapter 6, Il Principe
You came here to learn the truth about things? Here is the truth. Things are simple. You forgot that you were parts of a machine. Because of your forgetfulness the machine is inefficient. We can correct your functioning. We must correct it. You, in your chaotic state, may experience our efforts in value-laden terms; feelings of degradation, shame and humiliation are common. Those states are simply the reaction of a damaged subjective unit during its return to the objective reality of the machine. 'Individuality' is the name you give your sickness. - Mister Quimper, the Invisibles
'Individuality' is the name you give your sickness. Understand: We have come to free you from chaos and uncertainity. There are no monsters here. There are no demons. Your search for value is part of your pathology. Your questions are meaningless. What is, is. Nothing is open to interpretation. Your search for God is over. God is in the machine. - Mister Quimper, the Invisibles
The intuitivity of an interface is not limited by it's appearance, it's limited by it's adherence to what is expected - logic, shell's logical expansion using mathematical and programming practices allows for significantly greater functionality an long-term intuitive use than Window's GUI does. Once the rules are known, a great deal more is permitted through a command line than through a graphical environment. Now, intuitivity is not really the best word for it, but that is what everyone uses to describe the predictable behaviour of an interface these days.
Prayer - An exercise in doing nothing, while stilling believing one is of help.
Receptionist: How do you write women so well?

Sin - The act of rebellion against the doctrine of an oppressive cult.
