I think the Beatles phrased it best:



When I find myself in buggy projects
Father Armstrong comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it crash

And in my hour of darkness
His book is standing right on my desk
Reading words of wisdom, let it crash

Let it crash, let it crash
Let it crash, let it crash
Whisper words of wisdom, Let it crash

And when all the burned-out coders
Living in the world agree
There will be a handler, let it crash

For though the input may not be proper
There is still a way to recover
There will be no downtime, let it crash

Let it crash, let it crash
Let it crash, let it crash
The supervisor will restart it, let it crash




:p
