My last great bone of contention was the beta-test agreement
that would have caused conflict with my employer.  Unfortunately, 
the deletion of !map.out came at the same time.  
(Lots of good code had to be re-written in those days).

A kind soul at RSI took me out to lunch and helped me see some 
of what they are up against.  For that kindness, I am grateful.

It doesn't mean I always understand their decisions, but it has made me 
more tolerant of actions which affect my effectiveness as a programmer.
