in reply to Out gunned - and crashing

Maybe it’s a blessing that I have been involved in this industry for over 30 years ... such that I fully and completely understand what Mr. Philippe Kahn of Borland International referred to as “a sip from a firehose.”

It seems to me that this peculiar aspect of “our mutual obsession” is presently catching you off-guard.   :-)   Perhaps no one clued you in, yet, that “in this (still...) very crazy business of ours,” you need to find a way to learn to expect it.

Fact is ... you will always find yourself to be, as you say, “out-gunned.”   In other words, you will never find yourself in the happy position that the digital computer does not possess any means by which it can blow you completely out of the water.   You will always find yourself utterly overwhelmed (but only if you choose to be ...) by “what you didn’t even know that you didn’t know.”   Believe it or not ... this is par for the course.

Welcome to our mutual obsession.   C’mon in, the water’s fine ... they’re coming to take me away ha ha ...

And please rest assured ... I am quite (sober and) serious.   The actual situation that you now find yourself in, albeit “a sip from a firehose,” can in fact be dealt with, and even treated as (ha ha!) ... well ... not quite ;-) ... “normal.”
