[ Is there anyone on the list who hasn't committed these to memory yet? ]

And I have a feeling that, for most of us, the rules would get
rewritten very quickly to:

Rule 1: Have it out the door to the printer by no later than 2:30
Friday afternoon.
Rule 2: Do what ever else you want to unless it interferes with
Rule 1.
Rule 3: Smile while you do it, unless it interferes with Rule 1.
Rule 4: Don't even THINK about going home at 2:31 Friday afternoon.
