I've come to learn things and teach stuff. And I'm all outta stuff.

And don't take anything I say personally, because… I don't give it to you personally!

comment Is there a word for excessive use of articles?
@ErikKowal every chart title starts with "the", every hardware component name, every object with a distinct unique name. "A number of users", "an amount of messages", "the queries for the database of the servers of the system", etc. Seriously, we could really live without a lot of those articles.

"Double Baked Pie" for reference. Whether it is double-baked remains unknown :p

comment Thrice or triple?
"Triple cooked chips" may be read as "cooked triple chips", which has a totally different meaning, but "Triple-cooked chips" isn't so ambiguous. Words connected with a hyphen are interpreted as indivisible, so don't forget to use it if you want to avoid confusion.

comment Is there a word for a comment which makes no sense or adds nothing to the current discussion?
I just thought that in this case a more common word would be better than a rarely used one :p
