From: Leon Brocard Date: 12:04 on 22 Nov 2004 Subject: All of it This rant is pretty simple: I hate all software. I've just had it. I don't understand why people write or use software. I don't understand why companies use software or employ people to use software. I'm too frustrated. People keep on writing the same shoddy software which does the same thing as all the other wheels only still crashes and corrupts data and is 100k lines big and is hard to install and sucks up stupid amounts of memory and doesn't actually do what you want and just basically all sucks. I used to like software. It did useful things for me. However, what was really happening was that my frustration threshold was set too high because I was a fool. My threshold is now much much lower. And with any luck I won't interact with much software while I'm diving (which is mostly what I'll be doing now that I've quit my software job), other than my dive computer, which has a sucky interface but at least it tells me how deep I am and how long I should stay there. If a piece of software crashes, we should execute the entire software development and management team. This will lead to less software, and hopefully some of it might actually not crash. And don't get me started about hardware... Leon

I shut them down. Apache 2 was consistently causing a load of over 30 after 5 minutes of being up. I'm attempting to fix as we speak. Which rmeinds me Apache you pus filled buboe, stop fucking taking up my processor time you glorified "fork, open a file and print it to stadard out" piece of shit.
