Top 10 things likely to be overheard if you had a Klingon on your
software development team:

10) "This code is a piece of crap! You have no honor!"

9) "A TRUE Klingon warrior does not comment his code!"

8) "By filing this bug you have questioned my family honor.
Prepare to die!"

7) "You question the worthiness of my Code?! I should kill you
where you stand!"

6) "Our competitors are without honor!"

5) "Specs are for the weak and timid!"

4) "This machine is a piece of GAGH! I need dual Pentium processors
if I am to do battle with this code!"

3) "Perhaps it IS a good day to Die! I say we ship it!"

2) "My program has just dumped Stova Core!"

1) "Behold, the keyboard of Kalis! The greatest Klingon code warrior
that ever lived!"
