Bravo! Exactly what I was about to say.

Insufficient patience has caused most of the embarrassments I've experienced in my life in software. When it wasn't impatience with others' code or coding practices (i.e., "I don't understand it, so it must be wrong"), it was with some irritating aspect of security-in-programming (i.e., the insidiously seductive "Oh, that'll never happen" self-trap). And after 45 years doing this crap for valuta, I still fall victim to those things now and then.

Some lessons take a lifetime to learn...if not longer.

(This message is programming you in ways you cannot detect. Be afraid.)
