As a matter of fact I like refactoring, I like it very much. I mean the real one, done in little steps without changing the behavior.

That is, refactor/little behavior change/refactor/another little behavior change etc. in this way you can introduce a big behavior change without much pain. Or at least making your suffering as less as possible. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you can find it explained here.

So, why choosing “if it ain’t broken don’t fix it” as title?

Because I hate when things that work just fine are broken by people with “Big Vision”TM.

Today I found a blog (from a Kde developer) with a still better suggestion:

Btw the phrase came from Terry Pratchett’s Discworld books, here is another one:

Give a man a fire and he’s warm for the day. But set fire to him and he’s warm for the rest of his life.

Hello world – Konnichiwa sekai

Posted by Uberto Barbini on February 20, 2008

Hi everybody!

I finally decided to open a blog about a new project of mine… more on this later.

I’m not sure if I’ll manage to keep other personal interests out of here.

For the moment the wordpress account seems to work.
