Ok, so the game is, find the most amusing or most fitting quote you can, preferably (but not required to be) related to EMS use.

Anon 0 "which was almost finished until a serious design problem cropped up"

Anon 1 "It is as if they finally thought' oh shit, we can make some money with this" pause "after years of basically being GPL without actually being GPL"

Anon 2 "i AM wondering how many of these people have read normal non-embedded c code"

Give us your humourous quotes :-)

Fred.

Anon 3 "apparently xxxxxx is a pretty grim place to work these days" pause "(especially now all the intelligent people have left eh)"

I should add that xxxxxx still has at least 3 highly intelligent staff that I can think of and probably others too. In fact, the 3 that I mention easily outsmart anyone else that was there except two that were only there for a short time anyway, and maybe me on a good day with the wind blowing the right way ;-)

Welcome aboard Rob, and Thank you VERY much for the logo, I've had endless good feedback about that!

And another...

This fresh off the wire "its f***ing "use two carparks" friday today as well"

That sounds very familiar.

Fred.

Once you have discovered all the unworkable solutions, the only one that remains is the one you were looking for from the outset.

Welcome aboard SleepCounter, such a pleasure to see your username on the screen :-)

I think in honour of this I might have to search up a few classic SC quotes for this thread :-)

Kindest regards,

Fred. (sticking to your philosophy oh moderation in moderation ;-) )
