Yes, I know David Allen wrote this phenomenal book 12 years ago that would have saved me a lot of pain, but as an engineer I am afflicted with a wonderful disease called “Not Invented Here.” This disease forces me to ignore the helpful advice of others. It requires me to often build my own tool when there are plenty of pre-existing tools already built.

Ovo mi je veoma poznat osećaj, a verujem i svima koji nalaze da je najbolji način da naučiš nešto da ra rastaviš, ili probaš da ga napraviš od nule (što je kada se radi o softveru mnogo lakše nego kada pričamo o opipljivim stvarima).

Zapravo, i Majkl to kaže u sledećoj rečenici:

You may think this disease is inefficient, but I find it educational.

The road is treated as a memorial, because the bones of the people who died while constructing it were laid beneath or around the road. The land there is permanently frozen so interment into the fabric of the road was deemed more practical than digging into the permafrost to bury the bodies of the dead.

UVB-76, also known as The Buzzer, is the nickname given by radio listeners to a shortwave radio station that broadcasts on the frequency 4625 kHz. It broadcasts a short, monotonous buzz tone, repeating at a rate of approximately 25 tones per minute, for 24 hours per day. On rare occasions, the buzzer signal is interrupted and a voice transmission in Russian takes place. It has been active since at least the late 1970s or early 1980s, when the first reports were made of a station on this frequency.
