When I was waiting for a new project to begin, my company put me on infrastructure purchasing for a while. I did horribly at it. That said, in a lot of business, the mentality is to never go cheap on development hardware, because when it breaks, the combined salaries of all the man-hours wasted is usually higher than the money saved. And even tiny amounts of latency creates massive productivity losses with autocad.
The Process is all. The Process be praised.
A couple years ago, I spent an extra 6 hours waiting in an ER bed because they wanted to get the specialist to look at my injury and his shift hadn't started yet. In my admittedly complete and total armchair armchair opinion, I don't think that was necessary at all.
And besides, screwing that sort of thing up, even screwing it up repeatedly doesn't necessarily make someone an idiot. Kids are trained at an early age not to leave doors open. This can get ingrained pretty deep, such that when you see an door hanging open; particularly when it's potentially hanging out like a potential safety hazard, and you're walking by it anyway, you may be compelled to close it. And if you happen to be distracted with something else at the same time, like being in the middle of a conversation, then it's not idiotic memory of the newer, less inuitive instruction may fail to signal. FWIW, thanks to the class-action lawsuit on the matter, if you owned one of these, you're entitled to a $50 check, and up to something like a 30% reimbursement if you did indeed end up replacing the washer.
