    ‘Ford … There’s an infinite number of monkeys here who want me to look at a script for Hamlet they’ve written.’

    Dilbert, if you want to be top banana in this shop, you’re going to have to earn it! Zimbu is doing a first-rate job.

    And what’s wrong with BASIC?!

    There’s a great old Bob Newhart routine on the infinite number of monkeys and the infinite number of typewriters … It’s about the checkers they’d need to see of they’d come up with anything…

    BASIC had to die because anyone could code with it and “professional” programmers would be redundant.

    Also, according to Niklaus Wirth-less, it was bad because GOTO commands led to spaghetti code. Never occurred to him that mostly spaghetti code could be fixed by giving BASIC a decent editor, plus keeping idiots away from computers. Oh, and when he gave the world Pascal, his idea of an improvement on BASIC, guess what it had? A GOTO command.

    I wrote Bessel functions in BASIC. There was absolutely nothing wrong with it.

    Heh, yeah. I remember Pascal; I learned it in high school (and yes, I’m dating myself here). And I remember my teacher saying how much he hated the GOTO command and how proper programmers use subroutines exclusively.
