Bless 'em all

All the tiny little minds at Amazon's programming corps, that is.

As an Amazon "Associate", offering books and sometimes other things from Amazon on most of my web sites, I have to create software to deal with Amazon's database-search interface. I have been doing that, on and off, for many years now. It never gets any easier.

Is it so hard these days to find competent programmers?

The folk at Amazon seems convinced that the idea of system design is to make the programmers' jobs easier, and the blazes with users' abilities to make use of the output.

Anyway, that's why I have no time today for a real post--I'm trying to catch up with their latest snafus.

Maybe tomorrow, or may be not . . . .
