PHP OOP makes me want to cry. Or maybe it's OOP in general. I'm trying to debug this UI view that generates a f'ing table with a list of input boxes. Really fucking simple, but this code is making my head hurt. Sigh muffins. Here is a quote that should be pounded into everybody's head:

"Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place. Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it." – Brian W. Kernighan

"Increasingly, people seem to misinterpret complexity as sophistication, which is baffling---the incomprehensible should cause suspicion rather than admiration. Possibly this trend results from a mistaken belief that using a somewhat mysterious device confers an aura of power on the user." - Niklaus Wirth

Because I know what all of you are thinking right now, I'll just post it so you don't have to say it to me:

I don't think people come here to read stuff like this, you really should have a seperate work related blog and use this as a personal blog.

I'd rather read about how it took you ten minutes to open a bag of Doritos or how you think the girl at Starbucks is cute but she always fucks up your order....

actually...i do come to roy's to read "stuff like this" because i don't get to read "stuff like this" anywhere else. I find it very interested and FUNNY. such freedom of information (and opinions) is one of the greatest attributes of something like tabulas. consequently, through tabulas, you can freely choose to find someone who has trouble opening a bag of Doritos as well as a cute girl who always "'screws' up your order" at Starbucks. good-day.
