of all the unsatisfactory people I ever met --
I've never read the book, but I looked up Humpty Dumpty this morning.
Alice mumbles "of all the unsatisfactory people I ever met ..." as she walks away from Humpty Dumpty. Summed up the way I feel sometimes when working with all this high-tech stuff.
I was referring to:
'When I use a word,Â’ Humpty Dumpty said, in a rather scornful tone, Â‘It means just what I choose it to mean Â— neither more nor less.Â’
`My name is Alice, but --'
`It's a stupid name enough!' Humpty Dumpty interrupted impatiently. `What does it mean?'
`Must a name mean something?' Alice asked doubtfully.
"Humpty Dumpty" is a common phrase used in logic when people redefine
words to win arguments.
Like Bill Clinton's "It depends what you mean by 'it'". :-)
Or as Aristole might put it:
Look at the substance not the form.
In this case, it is the contents of the file, not its name that counts.
