Web Development is For Chumps. Try Linux Services, Instead.

Web Development is a violation of the 80/20-rule. Every project is easy and every project feels done, until you put a user interface on it. Then you realize I’m only 20% of the way done, and I still have 80% of the work to do. WebDev flips the 80/20-rule upside down and it becomes the 20/80-Rule. All the work you’ve done that made you think you were done was really only 20% of the work, and all the work that remains is the big part, because now you’ve got to put a user interface on it and deal with the unpredictability of humans.
