"I prefer my way of doing it to your way of not doing it"

I once heard this quote - I forget the context or who said it - but I really like it. Software Engineering is full of second-guessers and Monday-morning quarterbacks. Many projects seem to have that pessimist who snubs the teams' attempt to do something because it's not as good as that "perfect past project" that they were on. There's something to be said for the developer who just gets it done - even if the code isn't the best.
