Spin Cycle

It happens to all of us. Intellectually we know that the mad rush to release code that's late will put us in the spin cycle of fix/release/new bug/fix/release/new bug!

Yes, another project is a bit late and I have a lot of work to do. So we rush in fixes and cause more problems. We will learn from this mistake... I doubt it.

On another note, I'm reading Joel Spolsky's latest work "Joel on Software and lots of other things" (slightly paraphrased there ;) ) It's very good, and I highly recommend it. He has a lot of good ideas which would undoubtedly fix some of the problems I've described above. I have made one vow though, if I fix anything in the next few months, it will be setting up daily builds to ensure bug counts and integration issues remain at the minimum.
