Someone needs to invent an anti-stupid machine. Or maybe just a common-sense enhancer.
I know I'm not the sharpest tech guy out there. And I also know that I make mistakes. I get rushed to meet a deadline or I don't consider an important part of a specific part of a tech issue.
However, I take pride in the fact that I rely on my common sense and my ability to judge the overall effectiveness of a solution. I also err on the side of caution when implementing new technology or testing a fix. This approach has served me well in my career.
I wish others would follow it. I have lost track of the times I have been working with a business partner or 3rd party provider and witnessed stupidity so overripe that it falls onto all of those involved.
This is why I am awake at midnight for the second night in a row.
