This is the blog of Ronald Bartels that wanders on and off the subject of problem management (that is how it started), but it is best described by Ray who says this is Daddy's thoughts! Like the best music is from the Eighties and a wee dram helps in solving most inconveniences.
Look at the problem and not the data - memories of eating dogfood
I worked with an IT manager who had a theory about putting his
developers on the other end of a 64 kb/s Diginet link to develop his
app. He said they would be forced to develop optimal code. This is much
the same as the Microsoft philosophy of "Eating your own dogfood."
I think it worked. Regardless, the speed of the link will only be
familiar to someone who worked on mainframes or similar green screen
systems. Its damn slow.
