Just Cause - Beta launch

I've been working on Just Cause for a while and was glad to see it finally launched! I themed this.
JUST CAUSE is up and running! We are, as of TODAY, opening our virtual doors and ask you to PLEASE come to http://JustCauseIt.com and JOIN US! As a beta site, you can still expect some glitches and missing features, but you can help us fix them, by sending us any and all feedback. We have built an online social networking site that enables people to connect around the causes that matter to them. Now we need the people. We need you.

Drupal: Easy is hard, hard is easy

A thoughtful summary of drupal by a smart client;

The rule of thumb with Drupal is that only the hard stuff is easy. The easy stuff always seems to be hard.

We were having a hard time dealing with an extra annoying bug which was frustrating everyone. This was in reference to wanting to put meta tags on a page -- an incredibly simple task in their old static html site, and (understandably) seemingly difficult in the all new super-powered (but sometimes broken) drupal site.

Development time to code relationships

My favourite! :)

The first 90% of the code accounts for the first 90% of the development time. The remaining 10% of the code accounts for the other 90% of the development time.

Programmers don't create good graphical user interfaces

I think this came from an article on UXmatters:

Databases are one of the ways of organizing information. And it's really popular due to the specifics of computers. Computers work great with numbers. Slicing data into small parts, organizing it, and indexing is what computers do great and fast.

Censorship quote

Not sure where this one came from;

Censorship is the editing of collective human consiousness

Software Engineering code of conduct

This is an answer to a question I wrote for an old 1st year computer science paper in preparation for an exam. I put a fair bit of effort into and thought it was worth sharing. The Question was something a long the lines of "Give your opinions on the following statement; Employers should require software engineers to accept a code of ethics and professional conduct."

Software Engineers, can not be forced and should not be expected to accept any code of ethics or code of professional conduct.
