There's a wonderful book by Stan Kelly-Bootle, "The Computer
Contradictionary", a recent publication replacing his 1970s
"Devil's DP dictionary".
Part of his entry for APL:
" There are three things a man must do
" Before his life is done
" Write two lines in APL
" And make the buggers run
Some of his other definitions:
endless loop: see loop, endless
downtime: The period during which a system is stable and immune
from user input.
