A fail by any other name would smell...?

I love the Backbytes column in the Computing newspaper and since they have started various blogs, I can now read Backbytes' blog even when I'm on holiday. {Yes, I know it's sad!}

I liked this entry on Looking on the sub-optimistic side. You don't fail any more, you just turn in a sub-optimal performance. Doesn't that make you feel better?

This reminded me of the school inspector who asked some children why they weren't doing the harder maths work like the others. One replied, "We're the Primrose group. We're too stupid for that." A rose by any other name? They might be "stupid", but children aren't daft!
