    I get frustrated trying to decide between themes for Firefox. I can't imagine the complex decision process one must employ to determine which 10 out of 1,430,000. will help to actualize your phone's full potential.

    What have we learned here kids? Well, that there are far to many people who can write code, but can't a hold down a real job, or have any truly useful skills to contribute to society.

    Too many programmers, and not enough farmers. Oh well, I know what Marie Antoinette would say about this, "let them eat code"...:oops:

    Is it still possible to become a programmer after getting a C- in C+? :confused:
