Sid is an old time hacker
, and probably also a real programmer
. He is rooted in the iron age
of computer science, when "computer" meant a huge, hulking mainframe
s of power and being programmed with punched card
s. However, despite his grey hair he has kept abreast of recent developments and so far has managed to prove that nobody
can beat him where computers are concerned. He is just plain über-cool.
Sid is almost always holding a cup of (presumably) programming fluid, something that I suspect will play some role in a user friendly story to come...
