      The one who complained about the JUnit mailing list is one of the best
      programmers I've worked with. However, when he read the book "Extreme
      Programming Explained", he used a English-Korean dictionary to help him,
      and sometimes asked me to explain idioms.

      Unlike almost all of the not-very-good programmers I've worked with, he
      _will_ read books to expand his education.

      And he reads the bits I select from the XP mailing list. I try to pick
      the best and most-relevant messages from the XP mailing list, which
      average about 2 or 3 messages a week, and forward those to my co-workers.
