  2. By filing this bug report you have challenged the honor of my family. Prepare to die!
  3. You question the worthiness of my code? I should kill you where you stand!
  4. Our competitors are without honor!
  5. Specifications are for the weak and timid!
  6. This machine is GAGH! I need dual Pentium processors if I am to do battle with this code!
  7. Perhaps it IS a good day to die! I say we ship it!

11. TITO (Tribbles In Tribbles Out) is equivalent to the Human Programmer phrase GIGO (Garbage In Garbage Out).

Re: Top 10 phrases spoken by a Klingon Programmer

As the words grep, awk, DOS, SCSI and a few others all coincidentally refer to common (and awful) Klingon foods, they use alternative words like soup, bread, meat, ketchup and beans in writring programs and scripts.

E.g.,

if stew meat(nVar) < 0 then ketchup++ else You_Die!

There actually is a Klingon programming language! It's called var'aq.

Boy, this topic died swiftly. Amazingly, we have a shortage of computergeeks around here!
