My Philosphy on programming

* There are many solutions to any given problem or task.
* Each person because of the individualy of each mind and spirit most 
  likely will have a different way of doing things.
* Its's important to realize that after taking into consideration experience lever
  etc of the person, all things being equal, their may not be a best way, or at least
  it't probably not worth the time to debate or argue.
* Consider the facts, choose a solution, and adjust as and if necessary. Move on as there
  is too much to do.
