Abstract

Whenever you write computer programs, there are two Golden Rules to bear in mind:
  • Golden Rule 1. Anything that can go wrong, will.

  • Golden Rule 2. Anything that can’t go wrong, probably will too. In other words, cats miaow, dogs bark, politicians tell imaginative versions of the truth, and programmers make mistakes.
