MOTD re CS

Kirby Urner-6

Cutting and pasting the O'Reilly School of Technology server's MOTD:

"""
Computer science: (1) A study akin to numerology and astrology, but lacking the precision of the former and the success of the latter. (2) The protracted value analysis of algorithms. (3) The costly enumeration of the obvious. (4) The boring art of coping with a large number of trivialities. (5) Tautology harnessed in the service of Man at the speed of light. (6) The Post-Turing decline in formal systems theory. 
"""

Tongue in cheek of course.  Another one of those MOTDs went to a Wittgenstein list where I also post.

Kirby

PS:  fodder for the Python Diversity list, except I won't be the one to post it:
