When one creates something which can be "fixed" that easily, one also admits that it will be buggy and will require such updates frequently. Updates to malware signature databases and similar are fine of course, but not updates to the software or Operating System.

At worst, it allows the developers to become lazy. And of course, if the software being updated is buggy, how can one expect the update module itself to be bug-free?

Straw Poll

Have you ever taught anyone to code?
"Teaching" can mean from start to finish, or simply just helping someone learning to code work through a coding issue (like helping with homework or being a support tutor)
And how did it go?
