  1. This is the sort of article I would have loved back in the day when I was doing a fair amount of coding and a lesser amount of punning. In recent years, my amounts of coding and punning have sort of switched.

    Is it sad that, even though I’m retired for more than a year now, I still find this interesting? And I still subscribe to SQLServer.

  3. Not sad, Dom. I’ve been retired for 14 years, so it takes a little time. But do let your subscription to SQLServer expire …

    Is there anything more beautiful than the squiggle brackets in c#?

  7. Incidentally, Malcolm, though our wives are both very lovely, there is a reverse symmetry in our spousal religious-pairing: I am a Jewish man married to a Christian woman; you are a Christian man married to a Jewish woman.

    Henry, I get the feeling you and Malcolm are saving up “husband points” with each of your respective spouses for something big?

  9. Robert,

    In the somewhat dated vernacular, husband points are “where it’s at”.

    If you put a left and right squiggle bracket next to each other, you get a perfect hour glass figure. I’m a widower, I don’t get much else.
