Selected Words of Wisdom


  • Perfect is the enemy of good. Often 20% of the effort will produce 80% of the desired result (the Pareto Principle).
  • The devil is in the details. Make a proof-of-concept to ensure that you haven't overlooked a detail that will derail your project.
  • Hofstadter's Law: It always takes longer than you expect, even when you take into account Hofstadter's Law.
  • Capers Jones: High-quality software is not expensive. High-quality software is faster and cheaper to build and maintain than low-quality software, from initial development all the way through total cost of ownership.

comment Sharing Gmail contacts
@Mr_Green: That's very interesting, it may actually be possible to code a program that utilizes Google's API to achieve the desired result. However, I won't have the time to do that.

comment Sharing Gmail contacts
@Mr_Green: Thanks, but it doesn't solve the problem of keeping the contacts synchonized. When I update my contact data, my friends do not get the updates.
