I'm not sure if correctly understod your statement; if you are paying
compliments, or flame :-)

Hemmm ... anycase, my basic algorythm developing small code is the
"dd" tool. As you well-know, "dd" in the vi editor is a very powerfull
tool to getting small in programming, becasue it remove the whole line.
But I not refuse to remove single characters with "x", in the case I'm
really well-disposed and full up.

When I starts a new small program for muLinux, my guideline is
Michelangelo Bonarroti. It said: "the statue is already in the rock,
in the marble. I have to take away the superflous part". I think,
this might be the muLinux slogan/logo, if someone will do better

I followed this guideline using as good-quality marble, but sometimes
I removed also essential part. Ok, I'm not Michelangelo!


I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
