So, I'm standing in the lunch room nuking my meal and browsing the Report on Business section of the Globe and Mail. Lo and behold, some picture of a computer geek catches my attention. Hmmmm... some guy by the name of Theo???:


"Low code quality keeps haunting our entire industry. That, and sloppy programmers who don't understand the frameworks they work within. They're like plumbers high on glue," Mr. de Raadt said.

AWESOME :twisted:

Theo has the best one liners! My favorite is still the one where Theo tells Darren that code should be free, free for me to piss on if I want to.

If you read through it (click on the number next to "Revision" in the link i posted, currently the rev number is at 1.47), you will see a bunch of quotes made by Theo. It's towards the bottom, looks like this:
static const char *talk[] = {
"Write more code.",
"Make more commits.",
"That's because you have been slacking.",

It is updated by the developers with quotes of Theo's - the aformentioned link shows you the revision history.

The file is source code compiled into mg(1), an emacs-like text editor. If you use mg, then type in 'ESC X', then 'theo', then [enter] a number of times, and it will randomly print out the Theo quotes. 'ctrl-x ctrl-c' to exit.
