A Foolish Consistency

Alfred Thompson had a good post on his blog about the way that programmers persist in using single character identifiers (i, j and k etc) for counters in loops.

I posted a comment on the post in which I put one of my favourite quotes - "A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds" from Emerson.

I'm presently going through back filling all my blog posts so that I don't have any gaps in the days.

Go figure.
