Re: Don't Blame the Victim, But

A story I heard from one of my former colleagues: one of his colleagues (in the US) is working on some untraceable and intermittent problem. Has been going at it for several days already, and there's a software support guy working on it too. The usual back-and-forth ensues: "It's hardware because $symptom". "No, it's software because $other_symptom". "It's hardware!" "Software!" "Hardware!" "Software". Software tech pulls a handgun from his briefcase, puts a bullet into the system. "Now it IS hardware", walks out, never to be seen again.
