My Programming Mantra

I read a variety of technical blogs.  Some are agile, some are
pragmatic, while others are iffy, lazy, angry or corporate.  Most of them
have extensively documented approaches to programming, and zealots of each
approach engange in long blog battles over why they’re right and everybody
else is an idiot.  I don’t really have a name for my approach, but my
entire programming philosophy can be boiled down to a single mantra:

I will not write a Daily

This is what I repeat to myself everytime I open Visual Studio or Enterprise
Manager (“Enterprise Damager” as my network buddy Brad calls it).  I like
it because there’s no rational counterpoint.  No matter how many specs I
have, nor how many meetings I’ve endured, in the end, it all comes down to my
mind and its control over 8-10 of my fingers (I’m not a very good typist, so
sometimes I only use 6 fingers).
