You don't have to be that old to remember them, you cheeky whipper-snapper. And the phrase is still, with minor modifications, still useful. Whenever I see (saw?) some numpty Developer doing something daft I'd mutter to myself, 'That mind unintentionally left blank'.

Hell, it's Friday, and it's been awhile.

Laters,


Raymond
