The two hard problems in computer science

There are only two hard problems in computer science: Cache invalidation and Scope creep. Naming things and naming things are the only hard problems for computer science. There are also a few hard problems that are hard to deal with: cache invalidation, naming things, callbacks, off-by-one errors and scope creep. Bounds checking is the only one hard problem that is hard to solve. We need to work around the world to solve the problem. We are committed to solving it. We hope to solve it.
