I do lay claim to being one of the world's worst typists.... I was very happy when EET added the ""edit" link!

@mhrackin: I have to add two words: "Lilian Lust."

I think you mean Lillian Lust (played by Raquel Welch) -- as seen in this video

@mhrackin: Peter Cook and Dudley Moore [...] have always been incredible.

They really were great -- and I agree, I loved the original version of Bedazzled.

I presume your reference to envy is (like SLOTH) taken from the ORIGINAL "Bedazzled" movie, one of my all-time favorites!  Peter Cook and Dudley Moore (who probably SHOULD get credit for "Moore's Law) have always been incredible.

SLOTH is perfect for countering management's insistance on exhaustive and endless processes.  Finally a language to give the power back to the engineer.

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
