Who said temporal dissonance is not enough ?


Now this is the quote of the day!


Nice :)


I have to admit I did feel the pain as I am the single developer in my organization, I got so much to thanks to the community to keep me up.


Ahh temporal dissonance (http://nobius.blogspot.com/2005/10/365-tomorrows-temporal-dissonance.html). If you're curious how temporal dissonance can effect emerging technologies, go here: http://tas.sagepub.com/cgi/content/abstract/15/1/121?ck=nck

Of course from the quantum physics perspective, even the existence of your code is indeterminate until another developer reads it. The cat isn't technically dead until someone observes it. So what you say is undeniably true even on a fundamental, subatomic level.


I agree. That is why I promote developing for maintenance. http://ferventcoder.com/archive/2008/06/11/develop-for-maintenance.aspx
