Dietzler’s Law

“…You can get 80% of what the customer wants in a remarkably short time. The next 10% of what they want is possible, but takes a lot of effort. The last 10% is flat out impossible because you can’t get “underneath” all the tooling and frameworks. And users want 100% of what they want…”
(Neal Ford, quoting Terry Dietzler)

“You know you have no social life when the only person you can tell your problems to is your sworn enemy.”
(Leigh Butler, on rereading The Fires of Heaven)
