Best compliment a software developer can hear...

"It's kinda' boring. We were hoping to see a little more action..."
-- an operations manager at a major stock exchange
A group of us recently completed a major rewrite of system that I like to describe as "greasing the wheels of capitalism". I can't go into details, but the point is that the system has been running uneventfully since its release. That's music to this software developer's ears.

We -- software developers -- should all strive for such a compliment... unless you work at Apple, in which case the last thing you want to be is boring.
