I just heard this beautiful anecdote from a guy who works in the office in Gothenburg: Whenever it is time for an ISO review, he is kindly asked by his boss to take the day off, since he is so honest he makes the passing of the review without remarks and further reviews impossible.
More: Whoa, I know awk! I spent the morning hacking together a small benchmarking utility. The rest of the day will be spent stuffing code for different output formats into it. I have been away from programming far too long. This is fun!
