Do you think this is the best?
Does this phrase have a particular meaning in the world of computing that has hitherto evaded me? Or does it mean more or less the same thing as what the codebreakers at Bletchley Park did to the Germans' Enigma cipher in WWII?
My own limits lie somewhere between the Playfair and Vigenère ciphers. I once, some years ago, rather alarmed those around me by remaining utterly silent for several hours with a Playfair Azed crossword (found in The Observer, a UK newspaper), a Chambers dictionary and a set of Scrabble letters. At the end of this time I said - rather more often than was necessary - "Salpingectomy!"
It was the Playfair codeword (with, of course, no repeated letter) that I had been looking for all that time, you see...
I thought he was talking about thus: you need to go into your code to change something, and you end up "breaking" the whole damn thing, and your program/website/etc stops functioning. I've certainly done that whilst being forced to code in C at college.
Some programs feel like frail structures that might tumble at any minute. Don't blow too hard or you'll knock them over.
That said, your crossword-cracking skills are obviously to be admired. :D
Ah, I see... well, whichever meaning it takes, I'll still vote for it; God knows I've achieved both! Though I must admit not very often on the Internet…
Good point Finrod! It didn’t strike me at the stress induced time I added this. :)
its kinda cool when you realize that somehow your brain sees patterns in things.
