Who thought software was a good thing? If you confess now we might be lenient.
@liw Well, Babbage and Lovelace gave it a lot of thought during their time, but of course, we forgot about them for a bit. I think in general making new hardware was becoming a bottle neck. It started with patch cables and seemed like a good idea at the time, and look where we are now. :(
@liw I mean...sometimes it's fun to fiddle endlessly with a thing.
I've been less tolerant of endless fiddling since becoming a parent though...
