I was watching the 1999 classic "Pirates of Silicon Valley", and, in a shot showing Bill Gates programming windows, this screen comes up.
Just wondering if this film had anything to with the naming of the site. Curious that's all :-)
I know it's a fairly common error in C/C++. Either way, it's a humourous reference.
This originally comes from a closed SO post.
It was suggested on SO I ask it here.
