Now you took away all the joy from people who might have tried the ways
proposed in the C Infrequently Asked Questions file.  (BTW, the IAQ is
really great reading, and some of the answers are so clever that it may
take some time to understand why they won't work.  I think that the file
was written, because people in comp.lang.c have gotten fed up with
beginners requesting help for their homework problems.) 

I wonder if any people have written similar "anti-FAQ" files for other
areas?  Such as: How can I build a reset button to the C64?  Insert a coin
in the joystick port to reset the machine.  (That actually works, because
shorting +5V and ground resets the machine, but it may also take the fuse
and/or the CIA.)
