It's the space between people that makes a relationship
The big trouble with today's kids are far too many of them are like the way I was.
I had a recent exchange with a user. He had posted a lengthy snippet of code as a proposed solution to a question. The code was undocumented and uncommented so I replied that adding some comments might make the mechanics of the code clearer. His response was "I did not realize that it was a requirement of this site to post fully documented code." Clearly there was some disconnect between what I requested and what he thought I requested. It reminded me of a favourite saying from my dad

I am not quite sure of this though. I have seen this somewhere but can't remember the way it is exactly in words. :D
"Without vision, the people perish, and Lo! and Behold! we have received exactly that: a vision of the people perishing." -Dave H.
When life's got you down, just remember: You could be fixing someone else's poorly-written code in a language you barely understand.
And if you are, well, you have my sympathy.
And almost as bad is facing a report program that has to be done using MS's graphics objects. But even that is preferable to Crystal Reports.
