Re: So if I understand this correctly...
Yes, I do have a problem with "Software Engineering." I am a victim of it every day. It is an odd coincidence that the car I use, the roads I use, the buildings I live and work in and most of the planes and boats I've had occasion to use have orders of magnitude less failures than I experience with the products of "Software Engineering."
I suspect it has to do with the rise of hacker culture, where getting things to work in a sometimes, somewhen manner is the height of "Software Engineering" practice in the modern world.
At this point in time I am wondering how long it is before some evil bastard decides to remote control my car because of frankly inadequate "Software Engineering."
