in reply to Speedy Hacking

Speed is an strange thing to measure. I am proud of the fact that I write code very slowly, very very slowly in fact. I frequently rewrite and adjust code to suit its purpose. I spend a lot of time thinking about what I am doing and being sure that the design is up to the job. I am proud of what I produce and I think the effort I install into the production pays dividends. I also note that in the time I take designing and rewritting and generally fiddling is time I save 10 fold in debugging and maintence. Take an example, I recently was tasked with writting a trivial app and given a week to write it. I took two. The next complex app I had to write was given 2 weeks I used the code base of the first app and wrote it in 2 days. I spotted early on that there were repeating constructs in all our servers so abstracted them away initially. This design will save time on every similar server I write at this position..
Dont aspire to be fast .. aspire to be good.
