He's not a dog. He understands very well indeed.

""" It has often been said that programmers are introverts. I find that this isn't true, in the majority
of cases, but programmers usually do have a longer attention span and a greater ability to concentrate
than the majority of the population, and these two things can cause the appearance of introversion. Some
have even claimed that programmers are borderline autistics which, if such a thing were possible, may
well be correct.
IT IS.

Because they don't make a nuisance of themselves!  --Ikkyu
