We have regularly scheduled dumps, sometimes several per day.

Numbers like 512 and 8192 look strangely familiar to us; we think kilo equals 1024.

We use the word "code" as if it were something, like water or sand, that can be put in a barrel. We refer to "core" as place name, without an article, like "Newark".

We are horrified by bugs. We openly speak of spending hours "debugging", and don't find it particularly indecorous.

We bounce our daemons, and fork our children.
