Did you ever have one of those days where you could have sworn it was a Tuesday, because it “felt” like a Tuesday, only it wasn't a Tuesday, but a Wednesday instead?
In my case, it was more a case of today not feeling like a “Monday” than feeling like it was another day of the week.
It can't possibly generate comments worse than some I've seen
The Commentator uses revolutionary real-time language processing to actually grok your code and add the necessary comments on the fly. No more doco to slow you down. Just install The Commentator and watch as your coding elegance is eloquently decorated with insightful, nuanced commentary … as you type. What's more, The Commentator's powerful Personality Controls allow you to tweak it's output so completely that it's as if The Commentator is speaking for you. In your voice. Explaining to those that need it, so that you can get on and get busy.
The various axes one can tweak include FUD (from the EFF to Microsoft), humor (from Dijkstra to Ballmer) and bitterness (from “green” to “Death March”), to name a few, with options to use profanity, drug references and religion references.
Sounds neat. I could definitely use this to comment some of the PHP code I have to deal with.
“I don't even like babies!” or Notes on the Type of Conversations I Often Have Around Here
“So, you want me to send out bags of rice with baby faces on them?”
“It's an idea. We don't have anything like that in this country.”
“I wonder why? Then again, I don't know anyone that would do that in this country.”
“It would certainly be remembered.”
“Yes, but I read the site. It's the parents that send out the baby-faced rice bags. At $35 a pop.”
“Okay then. You're a smart fellow. Brainstorm. Hey! How about, for people who have dogs in the vet hospital, bags of rice with their pet's face on it?”
“Okay, how about this idea? A bride doll, a bag of rice with a bride's picture on it that is sent to the future mother-in-law to stick pins in?”
“I'll run that by the marketing department.”
“You do that.”
