Another LOC

February 11th, 2011. Tagged: Fun, Music
We don't need no docum'ntation
We don't need no source control
No dark sarcasm on the mail(ing) list
Ninjas leave them kids alone

No comments - code should speak alone!
All in all it's just another LOC

We don't need no code conventions
We don't need no (js)lint control
No YSlow rules, no validation
And who needs stinking unit tests?

Hey, guru, leave them kids alone!
All in all it's just another kick in balls

Alternatives:

Hey Crockford, leave them kids alone!

No dark sarcasm in the board room

  6. This is awful. Stick with the day job.

    Well, it can’t apply to Perl. Perl requires comments and even then it’s dicey. ;)

  8. Agree with @Bynens crockford’s line is a must!

  9. [...] here comes another one of those. This time a coverlet (a whatlet?) of Stevie Ray Vaughan's Tin Pan Alley (The Roughest [...]

  10. [...] I got very disappointed with the cross-browser results and after spending some time trying to figure out a way to fix for all browsers without increasing the CSS code or adding more HTML elements I gave up and played the John Lennon: “Imagine there’s no cross-browser issue…” (I wonder how come our honorable Performance Calendar curator hasn’t thought about such song before).
