We're Having Fun In Spite of and Because Of Serious Problems

We are having fun. We are doing fun stuffs: fun for us and fun for our customers. Join us!


You wonder: Why can you have so much fun? Don't you have serious problems? Are you geniuses?


We do and we still have fun. No, we are just plain normal average common folks!



You wonder: How much programming do you need to write a useful software?


Basically, we don't know.



We'd like to pose our own question: How much English do you need to win a war?


We just have a clue. According some published documents, maybe for the Six Day War, the Egyptian command needed about 18 pages for instructions to their forces while the Israeli command needed about 3 pages. Actually, the Israeli command did not give instructions, they just talked about some "intent" which is about 6 or 10 words in English.



We'd like to pose our own question: How much English do you need to win wars?


Maybe more than the Egyptian command and the Israeli command needed together.


We'd like to pose our own question: How much English do you need to write about war?


Sun Tzu wrote on a bamboo scroll as shown below. The English translations, without commentaries, are all very short. So, the answer is, "It cannot be very much."



Conclusion


Deep thoughts or conscientious domain knowledge or customer insights do not need purple prose and complex language to express.

So we're having fun. With honesty, with confidence, with lots of love for our customers!
