New Year's Resolutions for Coders

A few of the resolutions from a funny (if you're a techie) article in Wired...

I will realize that design patterns are a guide, not a religion.

I will bother to research the security issues relevant to my work.

I will not respond to requests for help by informing the questioner that they are not only asking the wrong question, but should change the language they program in and/or their Linux distribution.

I will recognize that not all programs are self documenting, and that this is why comments were invented.

I will go back and do something interesting with all my failed, half-finished projects.

I will not use the term "Alpha" when what I really mean is buggy, untested, crap-tastic software.

I will finally pay for all of the shareware apps that I use daily. No, really.

Thanks, Dak-Ind! HNY to you, too!

Snow? What snow? It's been raining most of today and melting what little snow we have. Our yard is turning into a litter of little lakes. :)

This must not apply to HTML/CSS coders. I just can't leave a project undone, especially if it's not working. :) lol As for any other kind of coding.. yeah.. I have no idea about that.

I'll take your word for it that that is funny. It went way above my head.
