I don't have any mod points, so I'm just going to say, beautifully illustrated!

Can you imagine if a manager was to pull himself away from his desk, walk down to the IT shop and ask an employee to, "show me," that he could make a cable, and then test that it was correctly made? Who's watching the stock price while that is going on? No one.

I'm so glad that we are staying focused on real CYA business practices here, instead of muddying the waters with talk of profit and loss, craftsmanship, or product quality.

A bug in the hand is better than one as yet undetected.
