So you’re having a technical argument with a colleague and you’re getting that feeling you’re on the losing end of it, maybe you know you’re right or even if you know you’re wrong but hate to lose?
When you’re back is against the wall, here are 77 statements from an old list on ‘Pigdog Journal’ you can pull out of your pocket to save yourself, but you should be careful, these are generally desperations tactics.
Copied below are some of my favorites from the list, I’ve been known to use a few from that bigger list 🙂
- That won’t scale.
- Trying to build a team behind that technology would be a staffing nightmare.
- I was reading about that on BugTraq yesterday.
- Have you LOOKED at the number of I/O requests that will create?
- Can you generate some USE CASES that would justify the change?
- Well, that’s great if you have an AI running the thing.
- Well, I guess we could start the QA cycles again from square one. That would require a press release, though.
- This really doesn’t jibe with our core competency.
- No, no, no. We’re really working on an N-TIER architecture, here.
