For your amusement...

Some computer Tom Swifties:
  • “I thought I would free up more memory on the second pass,” Tom recollected.
  • “You should always check the pre-conditions,” Tom asserted.
  • “Did you use SSL?” Tom asked cryptically.
  • “If one of those is smaller, put it first,” Tom ordered weakly.
  • “Command continuations discard values,” Tom said expressionlessly.
  • “That isn't null or a cons cell,” Tom said listlessly.
  • “Does this return an answer?” Tom asked haltingly.
  • “This program implicitly depends upon time,” Tom stated.
  • “Maybe it's in Reverse Polish Notation,” Tom put forth.
