George Washington was a programmer

Whenever one person is found adequate to the discharge of a duty by
close application thereto, it is worse execute by two persons and
scarcely done at all if three or more are employed therein.
-- George Washington, 1732-1799

And as it applies to programming:

Adding manpower to a late software project makes it later.
-- F. Brooks, "The Mythical Man-Month"

Nintendo aiming to please, or subtly slap in the face?

As the United State's president has recently turned 60, Nintendo mailed him a new hand-held console called the DS-Lite (Nintendo's new Gameboy with dual screens) and a copy of the game called Brain Age. The game aims at keeping people sharp with simplistic yet challenging games that target a wide array of people. The package came with a note of inspiration to aging President Bush to keep him sharp in his later years. I just can't resist the temptation that some higher-ups in the Nintendo Corporation thought that it would be funny to send our blundering President something to make him a little smarter. I am probably wrong, and I love Nintendo so I dare not smear their image, but it just makes me snicker. I also like to take the opportunites to laugh at W. when I can.

Monkey Butter!

Something good does come from the Fox News Station! Monkey Butter French Toast!

Basic French Toast
2 eggs or egg whites, lightly beaten
8 slices firm white or whole wheat bread
1 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup milk
2-3 teaspoons butter
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Combine eggs and milk in a pie plate; beat with a fork until well
blended. Dip bread slices into the mix to coat each side. Melt 1
teaspoon butter in a skillet over medium heat. Transfer a coated
bread slice to the hot skillet. Brown each side 2-3 minutes or until
golden brown. Continue with other slices, adding butter as needed.
Discard any leftover egg mixture. Serve immediately. Or wrap,
and place in the freezer for later use.

Note: The frozen slices can be thawed in a toaster set on
MEDIUM, in a microwave oven set on HIH for 30-45 seconds, or in
an oven set at 400F for about 10 minutes.

Traditional: French toast is yummy with a sprinkle of powdered
sugar, jam or syrup.

New: Slice them into strips and dip into monkey butter. To make
monkey butter, combine one mashed banana with 2 Tablespoons
reduced-fat peanut butter, 1 cup vanilla yogurt and 2 teaspoons
cinnamon sugar.
