Quick food for thought before the bus comes:
Here I am fixing bugs again. It's possibly what I do best. I like to think of myself as an innovator, but... well, there's the thing... until I have a stupid nasty problem to overcome, there is no real scope for innovation. Innovation for innovation's sake is less fruitful than innovation that gets you out of a corner you or someone else has painted you into. Is this glory seeking, or is it just the nature of fixing things? It's not finished until you break it, fix it, reinvent it, and then ship it.
