I think anyone who's taken Comp Sci 101 knows this (or at least should know this). Sadly, the source of these errors is left until the very last sentence of this stupid sensational article:

"And in that case, it's probably more accurate to say that computer programmers suck at maths or at least some of them do."

In all those cases the error can be traced back to a human.

In the Scud missle case, the article takes a negative view. How about: without the anti-scud system to intercept, there would be a shitload of dead soldiers.

And welcome to the forums.

You jerk-off

That's the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me...

I have no idea why anyone would feel unwelcome here
