Remember This! In response to my rhetorical question asking if there is anything bad about Conflict Catcher (see TidBITS-393), L. Carl Pedersen <[email protected]> noted that it’s a very bad thing that such an elaborate tool as Conflict Catcher is useful and necessary. Technology should make our lives easier, and although there’s no question that technology enables us to do far more than ever before (something like TidBITS, for instance, is inconceivable without inexpensive and powerful computers, software, and communications technologies), we spend too much time on maintenance, troubleshooting, and upgrades. Those who design hardware, software, and communications systems should keep simplicity and elegance in mind at all times. [ACE]
