I Love Programming, but I Hate Configuring

Dammit Jim, I’m a programmer, not a configurator. Microsoft needs to stop making me spend as much time configuring its products as I do programming them.

Yes, I’m looking at you, SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services. Reporting Services Configuration Manager is only half a solution.

Everyone else: let me do easy and gratifying things immediately, and difficult things shortly thereafter. Consider iLife your holy grail. There is no step 3.

That is all. You may return to your homes.
