Ah, so replacing raw numbers with a defined constant, and thus adding yet
another layer of complexity, will fix all your programming problems?
Exactly how many weeks, er, days have you had your shiny new CS degree?

Here's your harsh reality for the day.  Your Pascal professor lied to you.
Defined constants often are useless, particularly in device drivers and
other low-level code.

Oh well, better stop before this turns into a flame.
