in reply to I save my files

I am not sure wether I am odd, or have a resally odd sense of what is important...

I have very well structutres on my computer. Everything in a logic place (and naturally logical tar.gz backups on another machine).

For some reason this has not had any affect on my real life at all. My room is aproximately 4x4 meters. It takes about 45 seconds to move from one end to the other, if one values his life.

And then there are parents (Yes... you have them too.) They do like to keep it clean, but for some reason the structure in their computers is a catastrophic blend of chaos, mayhem and generally rising entrophy.

What happens in ten years? Will I say to my children:
Didn't I tell you to clear out the tmp-library?! And your home is a mess! And do something about that homepage! You will never get a job with a page like that!

Well... It's just speculations, but I fear the computer nerds will torture their children as bad as our parents did. Just in a slightly different way. Oh well...

[ambrus]: ething that's both cleanly organized and mostly automated.
LanX in train, bad connection
[Corion]: ambrus: Yeah - we're in that situation too, except that there is no time to do the reorganizing :-/
[LanX]: ... so my boss started a project with the newest sun servers and invited the traders to come on weekend to test it... and they were so pleased, that they forced him to keep it in production...
[ambrus]: Corion: sure, this is the long-term plan. The short term is that I have to run this ungodly mess to get results from the new input data today.
[Corion]: ambrus: Most of our "automation" is tied to process exit codes and a shell pipeline :-\
[LanX]: ... a week later they realized that one of the databases - which recorded how much the other banks due to this bank - was not correctly plugged
[ambrus]: Corion: I have no problem with exit codes and shell pipeline. My problem is that the current process requires a lot of manual intervention from me, including editing the source codes.
[ambrus]: (Also a lot of manual intervention by two or three other co-workers, who do other parts of the process.)
[ambrus]: Some of the manual part is unavoidable, but not all.
