    # To subscribers of the xforms list from Peter Hanley <peter@hanley.demon.co.uk> :

    I received the following from the IEE consultants' discussion group

     The words are to be read / sung to the relevant Beatles tune for
    full value.


        Yesterday, All those backups seemed a waste of pay.
        Now my database has gone away.
        Oh I believe in yesterday.
        Suddenly, There's not half the files there used to be,
        And there's a milestone hanging over me
        The system crashed so suddenly.
        I pushed something wrong
        What it was I could not say.
        Now all my data's gone and I long for yesterday-ay-ay-ay.

        The need for back-ups seemed so far away.
        I knew my data was all here to stay,
        Now I believe in yesterday.

        #Let it Be#
        When I find my code in tons of trouble,
        Friends and colleagues come to me, speaking words of wisdom:
        Write in C.
        As the deadline fast approaches,
        And bugs are all that I can see,
        Somewhere, someone whispers: Write in C.
        Write in C, Write in C, Write in C, oh, Write in C.
        LOGO's dead and buried,
        Write in C.
        I used to write a lot of FORTRAN,
        For science it worked flawlessly.
        Try using it for graphics!
        Write in C.
        If you've just spent nearly 30 hours,
        Debugging some assembly,
        Soon you will be glad to Write in C.
        Write in C, Write in C, Write in C, yeah, Write in C.
        BASIC's not the answer. Write in C.
        Write in C, Write in C Write in C, oh, Write in C.
        Pascal won't quite cut it. Write in C.


        Imagine there's no Windows,
        It's easy if you try.
        No fatal errors or new bugs
        To kill your hard drives.
         Imagine Mr. Bill Gates Leaving us in peace!
        Imagine never-ending hard disks, It isn't hard to do.
        Nothing to del or wipe off And no floppy too
        Imagine Mr. Bill Gates
         Sharing all his money.
        You may say I'm a hacker,
        But I'm not the only one.
        I hope someday you'll join us
        And your games will fit in RAM
        Imagine 1-Giga RAM
        I wonder if you can.
        No need for left-shifts or set-ups
        And no booting again and again.
        Imagine all the systems
        Working all life-time!
        You may say I'm a hacker,
        But I'm not the only one.
        Maybe someday I'll be a cracker
        And then I'll make Windows run.
