Boss: The users are typing wrong info in that text box. We have to automate and lock it
Programmer: Okay... We can do this, but there are some situations when the user has to type the information, due external unpredictable factors they don't fit in the rules
Boss: So, you can do this way: Create a unlocked field where the user can type what he wants, but, at the same time, it's locked to prevent him to type wrong information

Programmer's Day 13/09/2013 23:32

Programmer's Day

Original: Por que hoje é dia do programador?

Transcription ↓

Wife: Honey, why do you say that today is "programmer's day"?
Programmer: Because today is the 256th day of the year, or "day 255" if you start counting from zero. In binary it can be represented by one byte, which has 8 bits. Also, it's 2?, the highest power of 2 which is less than 365. And also 256 is 100 in hexadecimal...
Wife: Oh, I got it... It's numerology...
Programador: PLOP!
