Ugly Car

Today I saw one of the ugliest cars I think I’ve ever seen …

… an orange Porsche 911.

Now I’m not a huge fan of Porsche’s … but I don’t hate them.

This car, however, was just plain ugly.

Kind of wish I had taken a picture of it.

Top 10 Fuel Ratings

Ford Motor Co., with its hybrid SUVs, is the only American carmaker to crack the top-10 fuel economy list for 2006 vehicles … Ford Escape hybrid SUVs, two-wheel and four-wheel drive, round out the list.

Way cool!

Although I didn’t realize the Honda Insight got that great milage … I thought it was just a ‘mild hybrid’.

I’ll have to ask Dennis about that.

Developer Liability

Security expert Howard Schmidt wants coders to be held responsible for vulnerabilities in their code, but others say their employers should be held to account

Yeah right … blame the programmer … not the company.

Um, folks, who’s responsible for NOT doing sufficient QA on the code?

Program bugs are inevitable … that’s the nature of things. Those bugs, however, should be caught before the code is released. That’s what QA is all about.
