If I had 8 hours to chop down a tree...

I think it was Honest Abe who was quoted saying, "If I had 8 hours to cut down a tree, I'd spend 6 hours sharpening my axe."

That's kind of the way I code. If I have 7 days to write a program, I spend 6 1/2 days figuring out the best way to do it and then 2 weeks doing it the right way. Needless to say, clients aren't always pleased, however in retrospect they probably realize how much extra they got after they hire Joe Quick and Dirty Coder the next time.
