Sorry if I offended anyone. Sometimes being blunt stirs up better
discussion and I was trying to be blunt, not offensive. I was also
responding to the overly broad application of infrequent, massive
upgrades. But of course my wording made it look like I was criticizing
good reasons. All work and no play makes Jack a (mentally) dull boy.
Otherwise, Matthew wrote a nice reply that captures what I was getting
at pretty well. Ever work for the government, Matthew?
Bear, I'd be happy to hear what your system lifecycle looks like,
assuming you're a sysadmin. If you come down DTC way I'll buy you lunch
and tell you stories about low quality software. And you can tell me
how to find a job at sysadmin Nirvana where I don't need my 'tude. ;-)
