Lack of caring in coding procedures
Today it seems that everyone simply wants to slam out some code, get it to the 90% mark then call it a day and grab a sandwich. If you are reading this blog, take a look at the pictures of the folks following this blog to see the evidence of this. Both pictures are poorly cropped images of the full size image you will see if you simply click the picture. I know for a fact that software to shrink an image is fairly straight forward, and I fully understand that the image presented may become illegible, however right now Scott is just a nose and eyes, and Tim is basically just the middle of his black and red jacket. If only people could care just a little bit about the code that they are creating and take some pride in what they are doing, perhaps things would not be so poor. More evidence of this is evident for those out there using google reader. Try subscribing to this blog Then go look in your feeds. You should see: "Secretary Mike Leavitt's Blog" There is however a good chance you will see: "Secretary Mike Leavitt 's Blog" WHY - BECAUSE NOBODY CARED THAT QUOTED CHARACTERS MIGHT CAUSE A PROBLEM AND JUST EITHER ENCODED EVERYTHING OR DIDN'T ENCODE ANYTHING!!! My motto - when you claim that something is "done" you should consider whether or not you would want to present it to your mother as evidence of the kind of work that you do.
