The competent programmer is fully aware of the strictly limited size of his own skull; therefore he approaches the programming task in full humility, and among other things he avoids clever tricks like the plague. -- E.W. Dijkstra, The Humble Programmer

comment tar - exclude does not work

comment Can a computer act as a cellphone?
It's not enough to have an antenna -- you have to have the radio. There's no technical reason why you couldn't do this -- after all, that's basically what a smartphone is. I know HAM radio guys that have been hooking their computers up to their radios for years.
