Selected Words of Wisdom


  • Perfect is the enemy of good. Often 20% of the effort will produce 80% of the desired result (the Pareto Principle).
  • The devil is in the details. Make a proof-of-concept to ensure that you haven't overlooked a detail that will derail your project.
  • Hofstadter's Law: It always takes longer than you expect, even when you take into account Hofstadter's Law.
  • Capers Jones: High-quality software is not expensive. High-quality software is faster and cheaper to build and maintain than low-quality software, from initial development all the way through total cost of ownership.

comment iPhone not connecting to 3G after losing wifi connection
@man-qa: Which iOS version are you running? I have experienced many types of problems similar to the ones you describe on my iPhone 5 iOS6. Those were gone once I upgraded to iOS7.

After upgrading the phone to iOS7, the problem is gone. This further strenghens the case that this is an iOS6 issue.

comment iPhone 5 non-responsive when ringing
@Thecafremo: I have tried pushing every visible UI element when the device has entered non-responsive mode to try to provoke some kind of response from the phone, but to no avail. These elements are all located in the lower area.

comment MacBook Pro camera and microphone used by malware?
Good idea. That should be the default sound setting. A cam cover should come as standard. The tape works but the downside is it makes you look paranoid. People think this is a non-issue but AFAIK many malware attacks have used mic/cam to collect sensitive information/spying.

Thanks, great info, Wondering though for how long the green light is on. I guess long enough to notice it.
