Can we stop calling it "client/server" and start calling it "male/female"?

"Don't complain about free" is a poor excuse. We all know nothing in this life is free, so I can complain all I want.

“End result: An invention [the nuclear bomb] was given to the world in three years which it would have taken perhaps half a century to develop if we had to rely on prima donna research scientists who work alone.”

Reason #148 why I hate MySQL: When using an ENUM type, if you create an ENUM like "ENUM('a','b','c')", set the column to NOT NULL, and enter an invalid value, it will default to an empty string (or ENUM 0). No way to just raise an exception (other than adding a trigger, which defeats the point of strict types anyway). http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/constraint-enum.html

For those that are curious, Asteroids (the game) actually got it right -- when you move off the screen and end up at the opposite side, that's the way that space actually "works".

From wikipedia:

"Finite space theory does not suppose space has an edge, but rather that space wraps around on itself. If it were possible to travel the entire length of space without going faster than light, one would simply end up back in the same place, like going all the way around the surface of a balloon (or a planet like the Earth)."

Introduction
I'm a software developer with a little bit of awesome.  I like working on hard problems that can take months to finish, as the risk is huge and the payoff is even bigger.
