All the problems with software are caused by the absence of one critical module. Alas, I lack the skills to write it, design it, or test it. The telepathy module is the one which enables the software to know what users really want and perform that action instead of the one triggered by the button or command the user actually clicked.
Since I failed Telepathy101 I can’t make this happen, but I offer the idea to anyone who wishes to devise their own telepathy module. It’s a winner, I tell you, a winner.

Assembly language is the language of the chips themselves. Strictly speaking, it’s all binary … however each binary instruction has a mnemonic for the programmer to use. SHL = “shift left”, etc. An early proposed instruction was “DWIM”, which stood for “Do What I Mean”. Many programmers are very put out that this instruction was left out of the instruction set of most chips.
I don’t blame them! That’s an extremely important instruction to have available.
