Netscape Mozilla Documentary 1998 - 2000 ProJect Code Rush - creative common licence (by znoopy2k)
A documentary on Netscape, Mozilla, programmers and the dot-com era. Interesting stuff; and on a personal note: as much as they make being a programmer sound quite depressing, it does make me want to code.
Then again, this film is 10 years old… Who knows what the life of a programmer is like now.
I’d like to thank my parents, Mother Theresa, and the Pope.
I’d like to thank my parents, Mother Theresa and the Pope.
Yeah, I’ll keep my Oxford comma, thanks.
I just can’t resist correcting this. In speech, “I’d like to thank my parents, Mother Theresa, and the Pope.” would obviously be correct, while “I’d like to thank my parents, Mother Theresa and the Pope.” would sound confusing.
On the other hand in text “I’d like to thank my parents, Mother Theresa and the Pope.” would technically correct, despite the fact that the use of the Oxford comma in that case might help. The official entry itself states it can be used to help resolve ambiguity. The vs. you see above is ridiculous therefore, it’s contrasting two sentences which state the same thing. The attempted meaning of the second correctly rendered would produce: “I’d like to thank my parents: Mother Theresa and the Pope.”
