    LOL. That’s hilarious. If only life were that easy!

    On that note, if I could fork a copy of myself and have it go to work for me (in the background, of course), that’d be great.

    Incidentally, I’m attempting to muddle my way through make’s source code to add this as an Easter Egg. Mine would print out an ASCII-Art sandwich though. Make’s source is zomgwtfux0r insane though.

About Me

I'm Patrick Thomson. This was a blog about computer programming and computer science that I wrote in high school and college. I have since disavowed many of the views expressed on this site, but I'm keeping it around out of fondness.

If you like this, you might want to check out my Twitter or Tumblr, both of which are occasionally about code.
