    . . . in sickness and in health, for richer and for poorer, until my boss makes us part.

    My criteria for good software:
    1. Does it work?
    2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?

    ... with two eggs, 150 grams of flower, half a tablespoon of sugar, and a cup of milk. Stir until it stiffens, then place in a baking tray and put on the top shelf of the oven pre-heated to gas mark 8 for 40 minutes.

      That looks to be a recipe for Pfannkuchen (what I've seen referred to in the US as 'dutch babies', a sort of german 'pancake' (closer in composition to yorkshire pudding). Any recommendation on temperature for those of who don't have a european standard gas oven?

        Erm, Well I kind of just made it all up rather than it being an actual recipe :-). I could of checked my cook book but was trying to be spontaneous :-).

        Although I think gas mark 8 is around 200 degrees centigrade.

        Hope this helps :-)

    .. and hoist a flag up it.

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    "If there is such a phenomenon as absolute evil, it consists in treating another human being as a thing."

    John Brunner, "The Shockwave Rider".

      ... And see who salutes it! </management speak>


      _______________________________________________________
      Remember that amateurs built Noah's Ark. Professionals built the Titanic.
        Not management speak; a real military tactic, originally.

        In the past, it was a deeply ingrained custom to salute a flag as a sign of respect and patriotism. Many people took flags very seriously, and saluting the flag was a way of saying "I love my country, and the values for which it stands".

        Once a conquering army took over, they put up the flag of the invading country instead, and forced people to salute the flag of their new "homeland". Any signs of loyalty towards the old ways were harshly punished.

        However, to flush out rebels, sometimes they would hoist the old flag in some remote area, and secretly watch to see who would respect the old traditions well enough to salute the flag of their former homeland when it looked like no one was watching to stop them. Typically, only strict patriots would risk their lives to honour their former country: so their loyalty to the old ways was clear, and they could be executed as traitors to the new regime with a clear conscience.

        The management metaphor is likewise about finding out what someone's feelings on a given matter are, although the harsher elements are missing; one is rarely executed or even fired for giving an inappropriate answer in a board meeting.
