There comes a time when people at a technical conference like this need something more relaxing. A change of pace. A shift of style. To put aside all that work stuff and think of something refreshingly different. So let's talk about coding theory.

I like - if you chop the URL and head to the eTexts area - there are more interesting texts.
Thanks.

Really? Isn't it, rather, a pile of coding theory gags strung together? Good ones though:

"Perhaps it would be a better idea if we looked for strong keys. In fact, why not look for THE STRONGEST POSSIBLE KEY. Then we could all standardize on it."

Heh.
