Gardening

Gardening is tweaking working code to make it spiffier than called for by the spec - it never terminates & is why software is always late.

Back in WW2, week-for-a-week slippage of the V2 rocket development was stopped by a nasty SS manager who sat outside the drawing office & shot anyone trying to make a change. Not that I applaud the V2 - it left a few gaps in the neighborhood where I grew up. Still, it did divert Nazi resources from useful things like computerized gyro gunsights.

Anyway, I have just spent 4 hours gardening around an IE limitation (hysterical laughter off). And nobody will notice it because who uses IE?! And I could have done a proper post on the Commie Journalist.

Better get that Luger out...
