My greatest work…

Adolf Hitler? That guy was such a Deutschbag.

Yeah, it’s pretty much all downhill from here…

I had this as my gtalk status line for a while, too.  A co-worker was a bit apprehensive that I’d have the insensitivity to use “Hitler” in anything remotely visible and associated with me from work.  This confused me on several levels, since this wasn’t exactly “Wow, Hilter was a swell, upstanding citizen,” and for the fact that, well, as an engineering-heavy organization, far, far worse things exist in our codebase.

I have yet to meet a codebase that didn’t have colorful language in comments, variable names, and commit messages.  Sailors have a thing or two to learn from engineers!
