Heh, I enjoyed this little article; sorry for being late to the party. I'm a cross between both The Evangelist and The Ninja. An odd mix to be sure.
The reason I qualify for The Evangelist is because since day one of working with my employer I recommended that we ditch CGI binaries for something more abstract in the interface. Like PHP.
That way when (not if, something will always go wrong) the back end crashes the front end stays put! They're finally starting to listen too, after roughly ten months and the parallel advice of a pricey consultant.
Programmers are in a race with the Universe to create bigger and better idiot-proof programs, while the Universe is trying to create bigger and better idiots. So far the Universe is winning.
