Rafe Colburn writes about how every one-off becomes an application. I have a related problem: I believe myself when I say that the quick one-offs that I write will be replaced by a full-blown application in a matter of days or weeks. I should have learned by now that it never happens. Years later, there they are, still plugging away, taunting me. I have to run my small projects past a coworker on a regular basis so she can stop me from saying, “this will work for now and the real app should be along shortly.” Because no, it won’t.
