How many real computer programmers does it take to change a lightbulb?None, they'd just include lightbulb.h and recompile.
They sound like Scheme/FP fans. :)
I am a programmer and I don't really get that.....I should add that I am a terrible programmer who never paid attention in college so maybe that is not so surprising.
It's a recursive joke.
After reminding myslef what recursion was, I get it :) I really, really should change career.

The Barefoot Programmer isn't me. But yes, I have used numbered-line BASIC, and yes, I have used punch cards. I was coding when you were in diapers, you young whippersnapper!
Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood. See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules. Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry. Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.I've already answered some typical comments.I have jqMath enabled for the blog. If you have a dollar sign (\$) in your comment, put a \\ in front of it: \\\$, unless you want to include a formula in your comment.
