    Software Engineering

    "Software Engineering"
    A software engineer, hardware engineer and
    departmental manager were on their way to
    a meeting in Switzerland. They were driving
    down a steep mountain road when suddenly
    the brakes failed. The car careened out of control,
    bouncing off guard rails until it finally ground to a
    halt along the mountainside.
    The occupants of the car were unhurt, but they
    had a problem. They were stuck halfway down
    the mountain in a car with no brakes.
    "I know" said the manager. "Let's have a meeting,
    propose a Vision, formulate a Mission Statement,
    define some Goals, and through a process of
    Continuous Improvement, find a solution to the
    Critical Problems and we'll be on our way."
    "No," said the hardware engineer. "I've got my
    Swiss army knife with me. I can strip down the
    car's braking system, isolate the fault, fix it, and
    we'll be on our way."
    "Wait," said the software engineer. "Before we do
    anything, shouldn't we push the car back to the top
    of the mountain and see if it happens again?"

    That's great, mayhem! Thanks for the joke. But where did you get it from? Just curious, I could use a bit more tech humor in my life.

    BTW, there was a website I used to go to a lot, but lost track of it. It was a tech humor site specializing in tech support humor, mostly sent in by readers. Does this ring a bell to anyone? I checked on Google to no avail...

    I am glad you like it Mobius. I got it from a friend and have to wait for them. If and When I receive another I'll be glad to share it with you.
