Ian Bicking: the old part of his blog

false fiscal conservatism

"The 3 great virtues of a programmer:

laziness, impatience and hubris."

-- Larry Wall

Your discussion of true and false fiscal conservatism reminds me of the discussion in the Camel Book of false laziness: how some programmers, thinking to be lazy, write code that works but is bad, and then have a terrible time trying to grok the code later. They have made more work for themselves by not doing it right the first time, so they have not been truly lazy. True laziness and true fiscal conservatism both sound good to me.

I wish the best for Dave Bicking; but I live in Florida.
