If This Then What?

You found a bug. Congratulations. Pause before you report it. Ask yourself whether what you saw is all there is. Perhaps it's a specific example of a general problem, a relatively benign instance of a potentially more serious issue or something that no-one who matters will ever see?

You wrote a short blog post. Congratulations. Pause before you publish it. Ask yourself whether what you wrote etc etc.

Erm, yeah; RIMGEA.
