I know this so called uber-programmer, who is just like this, perhaps worse. instead of shoving people around, he fires them. He simply will not tolerate mistakes and will blow a cork when he sees them. He will berate you, belittle you, embarrass you if front of every one, then maybe fire you.
Rather standard behavior for upper level, ego driven programmers it seems.

It confounds me that still, in today's world, new technologies are designed as such:

Design core features.
Write and test/debug core features.
Then, if there is time, do a security audit and glue some security on top otherwise just release what you got.

Security must be built in from step one, step two, etc. and must be and integral part of the design.
Have we not learned our lesson yet?

The problem I find is it goes bad after 6 months to a year or so. Leaving a varnish like gunk residue behind. If I don't completely drain it from my snow blower in spring, and lawnmower and weed wacker in fall, the carburetors need complete overhaul and cleaning by the time I need them - the jets get clogged. You can see the crap in the carb bowl and tanks. Never used to be like this before ethanol.

An Ada exception is when a routine gets in trouble and says 'Beam me up, Scotty'.
