The new submariners with ceramic bezels are near indestructible. It's the wristband that will get the most damage. Funny enough, mine was scratched within a week after purchase on the cyclops eye... while swimming. It will have no problems going 1000 ft under water, but if you scratch it against the wall while doing some crawls it will take a hit...

I don't think that's what he meant. I think he says that anybody who manages to add complexity to something simple and straightforward (a project that would only take a week to do) by adding "beautiful" layers that provide abstractions for the sake of abstraction, should be shot. Personally, I would happily set fire to the remains after the firing squad had its turn.

the friend can surely find 90% of his lost stuff, but it will take him a lot of time to download it again. Also, if he's like me, he can't remember half of what he had.

Then there's his wife who's screaming at him about the loss of the "home videos" (no honey, they're really gone, they're not at somebody else's computer now)

Yeah, I guess the price of an extra 20TB raid array doesn't seem so high now anymore...

A holding company is a thing where you hand an accomplice the goods while the policeman searches you.
