    We all are.  It used to be de rigeur to prove that your code was correct.  Now many people don't even bother to test their code thoroughly, let alone prove it correct.

    It is my personal incompetence that has frustrated me so much. I have been hit over the head by that glass sealing so many times my head hurt.  I try to gage better what tasks I am capable of doing and do those instead. Like what tasks did I hit my head against you might be wondering. Oh, how to solve world hunger and the clean water problem in a time frame of a year or so. It’s a very hard task. Needless to say, I was very incompetent. But I did my best and gave it my all. If I had given it any more I probably would have died. But fortunately I am here and realize my incompetence.

    Everyone is an incompetent programmer all the time. The best we can do is assume we will make mistakes and learn from it.

    I wrote program to demonstrate why supermodels should want to jump my bones all day long... but it doesn’t seem to work.

    I guess I’m incompetent... or something.

    Why are W3bbo and I in that picture? I think in order to be stressed by the news about layoffs at MS, you'd have to work at MS first. Tongue Out

    So why don't you enlighten us all with the reasons why the MS UI designs are 'noobshit'? Or do you just sit there making negative comments with no substance?

    I don't know if MS programmers are intentionally incompetent... It is without exaggeration to say that MS is the largest software company in the world.

    Yet, Windows as an OS hasn't been advanced like it has the largest programming resouce on the planet.

    There's been evolutionary changes in any axis you pick, security, user experience, programming, but you know when the changes have been the biggest?

    When OSX made a serious play for the desktop. When Linux made a serious play as a free OS...

    I don't think MS is guilty of having incompetent programmers (in general, not specific), just guilty of resting on their laurel (and a huge pile of cash).

    Besides messing up the current layoffs (or is that LisaB's territory)... I like what Balmer's done...

    He saw MS' huge pile of cash, and decide to use it... It might not net any profit (I don't care, I'm no longer a stock holder)... but it gets them moving.
