Please Just Listen...



  • I don't have the time or energy to explain to you why we need a database script or why we have to wear underwear outside. I'm not tall, dark, or handsome, so you probably wouldn't listen even if I tried. I can't explain why "code first" is better, or why "model first" is better. And I have no desire to confirm or deny your long chains of deductive reasoning; I almost always find (eventually) that such exercises in linear thinking end up being flawed somewhere down the line.



    I do go by intuition a lot of the time, for that reason, and also because I just don't have time for all that arguing at the whiteboard. I'm going to tell you the right answer, tell you the right answer again, and then give up. I've never been good at the uniquely American art of exuding supreme confidence (probably because most things turn to shit eventually), nor do I buy into the "meritocracy of ideas" that most of my colleagues seem to strive for. One can prove anything on paper. Experience and gut feel do a far better job of getting to the right answer.



    After you do things your way and fuck everything up, I'm going to clean up the mess, and you may not even hear about it... until the day I just get fed up with it all and disappear.



  • So are these forums just a place to post the letters you write that are full of things you're apparently too timid to say in real life? When did this website become the diary of a twelve-year-old girl?

    Oh, you missed Alex's big ONE-TWO bash!



  • Bridget's off his meds again.

    Oh, I say it face-to-face. I didn't title this post "Please Just Read My Mind."

    Pity. Reading that could have been the highlight of my day.



  •  LOL :)
