that's probably not true, but beyond that, it's a purely theoretical 
argument that I don't think holds water. it's like saying that 
there's no real difference to being in a room with one 
non-housebroken dog and 20. In theory, you're right. In practice, you 
can bet there is.

I find it fascinating to watch people tell other folks how easy it is 
to do their job right, myself. I wonder how many people on this list 
could begin to architect AOL's system, much less build one that 
didn't implode in the first three minutes.
