God is in the typos

1st December 2003, early evening | Comments (14)

I am currently experiencing the less-than-delightful side of being a programmer on a deadline — no sleep and no food has turned me in to a shivering wreck, and for some reason I’ve developed hyper-sensitive hearing in to the bargain — even the air sounds loud. It’s very odd.

It was in this slightly harried mental state that I found myself reading a line of code I’d written earlier today:

  1. // if all is god then insert info into database
  2. Download this code: 66a.txt

if all is god…

What can that mean?

Is The Almighty contacting me through the power of PHP comments? Has my slight dyslexia become a channel for Jesus? Will crazy people from the American Mid-West flock to see my typos: He wrote run query — it’s a sign Jesus wants gay people chased out of Heaven!*

Is my shaking the onset of a religious experience? Are my mis-spelt words a literary form of speaking in tongues? Is my amazing hearing indicative of finding Jesus, or the first steps to becoming a Super Hero? Or do I simply need some sleep and a bite to eat?

Whatever the reason turns out to be, it better not get in the way of this deadline…

*That’s the crazy people talking btw, not me. As far as I’m concerned gay people can hang out in heaven as much as they like… just don’t paint it pink or anything, OK?
