In my previous post I let off a little steam by talking about some of the things that frustrate me about Agile (or rather, how many people choose to interpret it). To summarize, one of the things I see Agile positioning itself to achieve was a shift away from rigidity of previous software development styles, such as Waterfall.

Like a lot of software developers, I have been working with Agile for much of my career, and while there are many things I love about it, there have also been times when I have felt like burying the next person within earshot who utters the phrase "that's not Agile" when they run out of ideas.

Back in July 2011, after five years of near constant usage, my trusty ViewSonic VP930 LCD monitor finally bit the dust and went to join the big recycling heap in the sky. Faced with a potential bill of around £150 to replace it, I figured there was no harm in trying to fix it myself. As it turns out, it was simpler than I imagined.

I've heard a fair few chiliheads talk about Who Dares Burns from Hot-Headz with a lot of affection: for some it was the first super hot sauce they ever tried, and hence it was the one that popped their chilihead cherry. So, as you can imagine, I was very excited to finally get my hands on a bottle of the good stuff. When something claims to be "UK's No.1 best selling Super Hot Sauce" you just have to sit up and take notice.

Being a consummate chilihead brings with it several advantages, the majority of which are far too boring to mention in any great detail. They mostly involve being able to frighten the life out of anyone who engages in any other mundane activities, such as alligator wrestling. However, there is one discernable downside to being a capsaicin junkie, and that is the ever increasing need to push the heat boundary in order achieve that elusive endorphin rush.
