Found an interesting comment online tonight while catching up on some RSS feeds I’d neglected over the Christmas/New Year break. I was reading the blog Brain.Save() when I found a reference to an entry on Larry Osterman’s Weblog that contained an interesting quote:

In our business, one in a million is next Tuesday.

In my experience, this is true. Time after time, the one-in-a-million possibility has been the problem crashing the program.
