Programming quote

That's a great quote, from one of my favorite books...although it's "Rick", not "Rich" :-)

Have you read the whole series?

Thanks for the correction. I copied it verbatium...actually I haven't read his stuff, just stumbled across the quotation and liked it.

That quote is so good that I'm going to tattoo it on my butt, so that I can "add value" to my usual interactions with management and users.
