I knew all that spec shit was bull shit

"a 'spec' is close to useless. I have _never_ seen a spec that was both big enough to be useful _and_ accurate. And I have seen _lots_ of total crap work that was based on specs. It's _the_ single worst way to write software, because it by definition means that the software was written to match theory, not reality."
-- Linus Trovalds
from Linus on specifications, kerneltrap.org
