Vincent, thanks for these Positions.

I know a lot of postings from Tsavdaris, but I've never seen those three positions.

Where did you find these?

Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first
place. Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you
are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it.
