Old Man Grumblings

I guess I'm getting old, as far as programming goes. I see a lot of fads blowing through programming (apparently many geeks are actually more prone to fads then aren't, and this is interesting as you would thinks geeks with their alleged superior intellects would be immune), some of the fads are good, some of them OK, some of them not, but apparently ALL demand to be followed with absolute faith else your code is yukky and you suck (even though many programmers who didn't use all this stuff put men on the moon, designed planes like the SR-71, managed complex nuclear physics codes, yadda yadda yadda, just fine without all these extra layers of abstraction.

I digress.

I guess my point is summed up here.

I might have blogged about this before, but I keep coming back to this, as it never gets old to me.

Getting old is only in our mind.
Age never prevented people from doing things:
