Temporary stop-gap solutions never are

Today's software development rule is: temporary solutions never are.

In order to get a product out the door, do not agree to have your development team run production reports until finance gets their systems changed

When a feature is no longer necessary, someone will always continue to think it's critical to their work and require you to maintain it.


  • Last post

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
