Hi..

UNIX is simple. But It just needs a genius to understand its simplicity.
--Dennis Ritchie
Before software can be reusable, it first has to be usable.
--Ralph Johnson
Good judgment comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgment.
--Fred Brooks
It's hard enough to find an error in your code when you're looking for it; It's even harder when you've assumed your code is error-free.
-- Steve McConnell Code Complete
The trouble with the world is that the stupid are sure and the intelligent are full of doubt.
--Bertrand Russell
If debugging is the process of removing bugs, Then programming must be the process of putting them in.
--Edsger Dijkstra
You can either have software quality or you can have pointer arithmetic; You cannot have both at the same time.
--Bertrand Meyer
There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third works.
--Alan J. Perlis
Measuring programming progress by lines of code is like measuring aircraft building progress by weight.
--Bill Gates
The first 90% of the code accounts for the first 90% of the development time. The remaining 10% of the code accounts for the other 90% of the development time.
--Tom Cargill
Programmers are in a race with the Universe to create bigger and better idiot-proof programs. The Universe is trying to create bigger and better idiots. So far the Universe is winning.
--Anon
Theory is when you know something, but it doesn't work. Practice is when something works, but you don't know why it works.
Programmers combine Theory and Practice: Nothing works and they don't know why.


The Six Phases of a Project:

Enthusiasm
Disillusionment
Panic
Search for the Guilty
Punishment of the Innocent
Praise for non-participants


Last but not least ! ....

No matter how slick (efficient) the demo is in rehearsal, When you do it in front of a live audience
The probability of a flawless presentation... Is inversely proportional to the number of people watching,
Raised to the power of the amount of money involved.
