Thanks a Million!

David Gilbert gave us some good news:

And Andrew Haley quoted some wise words:

When a very well-known and widely respected computer scientist recently used [lines of code as a measure of] programmer productivity in a lecture, the suggestion came from the audience that, instead of talking about “the lines of code produced” we should talk about “the lines of code used” and that, therefore, the speaker was booking them on the wrong side of the ledger. The speaker answered that he stuck to his productivity measure, because he did not know of any alternatives that allowed proper quantification!
