Sins of the Past

Wrong deeds gave birth to different kind of taste but it always had the same after taste, the bitter. The implications were severe and long-lasting. One deed done in whatever name you believed, turned into something grave and somehow endanger people.

The thing about wrong deed is that they have been done, one way or another, be it intentional or not, be it consciously or not. The result is there to fix and somebody has to make sacrifice to restore the balance between the present and the past. Our present is a result of our and our fathers’ past.

It is true that sons always have to bear the sins of their fathers, that sons always have to clean up after their fathers. Complaining won’t do necessary repair as much as silence. The destiny of sons isn’t, and never was, any easy. It’s easy when they abandon their duty but the consequences are heavy. Nobody knows whose time is up first.


When Two, or more, Become One

Supposedly, one should’ve been writing a fix for several bugs about faulty architecture. In this case, as the one who was tasked to design the architecture, one failed to capture the possibility to expand the architecture without risking the integrity of existing design. Here was the thought.

One considered first that the structure should be divided into several smaller parts in order to delegate the parts to different teams. Such plan was agreed since there was no more head around to add different opinion. One main structure was to be the head and several structures became the derivative. The problem came from the unexpected party.

What if the future requires me to attach new, different data into the structure? Would it be as easy as adding the slot and be done with it? Or does the structure would require me to rewire the existing connections?

The question hit one hard, forcing one to draw back from the front line.

Later, at one night, one sat in front of a table with mind ready with an idea from a friend. Develop one big structure to contain all data and a few small structures to contain the description. That being said, the first thing to do was to merge current structures into one structure. Since merging would compromising the old structures, one would need to volunteer oneself to also merge the existing data.

The next steps would be defined later in proper appointment.
