Nobody's "won" an argument over the internet. Before you start, ask yourself what you will get of this other than the attempt to change their mind, because you will not change their mind.

"I recall a truly excellent hack we encountered on "Savage Empire," an Ultima VI spin-off that Origin shipped in late 1990. Origin was using Borland's 3.1 C Compiler, and the runtime module's exit code always checked memory location #0 to see if a wayward piece of code accidentally overwrite that piece of memory, which should be unused. If it detected that the memory location was altered, it would print out "Error: (null) pointer assignment" at the top of the screen. Null pointer assignments were tough to find in those days because the CPU just happily assumed you knew what you were doing. "Savage Empire" programmers tried in vain to hunt down the null pointer assignment until the very last day of development. Origin's QA already signed off on the build, and Origin execs wanted to ship the product since Christmas was right around the corner. Steve, one of the programmers, "fixed" the problem with an amazing hack. He hex-edited the executable "savage.exe" and changed the text string
Error: (null) pointer assignment
to another string exactly the same length:
