in reply to "Chuck Norris"-ing code

I've seen this kind of thing too. The particular version of it I know is managers who will try anything before they change the code, regardless of cost. Performance problems? Buy a (hardware) caching proxy. Buy more machines. Buy a NetApp. Buy an entirely new commercial software platform for millions of dollars. But whatever you do, don't try to improve the existing code! That will only cause bugs.
