    I agree. Redundancy is not always such a bad thing.

    I think, when it gets right down to it, redundancy is not always such a bad thing.
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    Redundancy in the tech world is beneficial. I think technology needs redundancy because it benefits from it.

    Belt AND suspenders. Always in style.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    50% of the time I'm redundant. The other half I just repeat myself.

    Not only dumb, but incoherent.

    I started it, and I have no idea what a couple of the posts mean (like Jay's). And the post by Fling, quoted by Kester, does not appear in this thread.

    What gives?

    The joke is in the redundancy. Saying it twice.
