in reply to Falling for the same trap since 1942

This is why Antipatterns are so useful. I would say they're more useful than patterns. Everyone knows when they do something right. Figuring out when what you're doing "right" is actually wrong is much harder. (Of course, having the managerial will to fix it is nigh-unto-impossible, but we can still dream ...)

We are the carpenters and bricklayers of the Information Age.

Don't go borrowing trouble. For programmers, this means Worry only about what you need to implement.

Please remember that I'm crufty and crochety. All opinions are purely mine and all code is untested, unless otherwise specified.
