    An employee forwarded this to me the other day:

    The Klingon Programmer's Code of Honour

    All Klingons who develop code for the glory of the empire follow this "Code of Honour" for software "code warriors".

    • Specifications are for the weak and timid.
    • State-of-the-art hardware is a prerequisite to do battle with code.
    • One cannot truly appreciate "Dilbert" without reading it in the original Klingon.
    • Indentation is for enemy skulls, not code.
    • Klingons do not "release" software. Klingon software escapes, leaving a bloody trail of design engineers and quality assurance people in its path.
    • Klingon function calls have no parameters. They have arguments! And they always win them.
    • Klingons do not debug. Our software does not coddle the weak.
    • Quality Assurance issues are best solved with a Batleth.
    • A true Klingon warrior does not comment his code.
    • Our users shall know fear and cower before our software! Ship it! Ship it and let them flee like the dogs they are!
    • Klingon software does NOT have BUGS. It has FEATURES, and those features are too sophisticated for a Romulan pig like you to understand.
