When I go out to the Monastery gardens, I see a lot of monks practicing the Art of Perl. Which is like

  • Wushu: has as many styles as stars on the oriental sky
  • Boxing: a few tools, infinite combinations, pride of the western world
  • Okinawan karate: relies on strength, linear and brutal
  • Tai chi chuan: if know your stuff well enough, you can spin the world around yourself
  • Krav maga: ugly and effective, basic training goes a long way
  • MMA: other programmers enjoy watching the mayhem in the IDE, but afraid to join the fun
  • Silat: exotic weapons, incomprehensible techniques, sudden death
  • Log In?

    [marto]: Sane Dots, chapter 13: ITIL never work :P
    [marto]: sorry, bad pun of it'll :P
    [Corion]: :-D
    [Corion]: I think that ITIL is mostly to prevent people from doing harm to a system that basically runs unattended :)
    [Corion]: Maybe you could reduce ITIL to a computer network, a man and a dog. The network runs the computations. The man is there to feed the dog. The dog is there to prevent the man from accessing the computers.
    [marto]: from experience of this side of the fence, it's all about proving to people that you are ITIL compliant, then the client ignores logical processes anyway :P
    [marto]: when you work on the outside, for a client, you can make them aware of the stupids, but they don' t always listen :/
    [Corion]: Yeah, you can lead them to water, but it's illegal to drown them...
