Aaaah, a logger. Obviously the first on his block to be a logger. The joys
of bravely loggin where no one has logged before! ;->

Perhaps if he was an english major, or english was his first language, he
could tell that the common meaning of yield isn't produce. I have no idea
what zip means beyond being a name for a compression utility or a verb
meaning to exercise a zipper.
