It's the see-saw

So many things in life run on the see-saw. Or the pendulum, if you prefer. Attitudes go one way and then back another. In so many areas of life. When I first learned programming, functional programming was all there was: input-process-output, complete with GOTOs and big runs of spaghetti (no sauce, alas). Then it was STRUCTURED programming, you dummies! Organize it so other people can read it (not to mention yourself six months later). Then it was OOD. And now we're trending back the other way? Really? Very interesting.

And, yes, Verity, it was past time to hear from you. We also need to hear from the BOFH and Lord Bong soon. Regular columnists are good.
