The README is there for a reason

Me: Hey, wait a second. The README claims we need sqlite3 on your webserver. I'm not sure it's installed ...

Her: Give it a shot.

Me: (aghast) But ... if sqlite3 is not on the server it won't work.

And we run smack-bang into a divide more fundamental than the male-female thing: the ones who check things out before launching and the ones who give it a shot and see if it flies or splats into a wall.

God love her, my beautiful and attractively intelligent wife falls firmly into the latter camp.

I fall firmly into the camp whose theme song contains this verse ..

They do not preach that their God will rouse them a little before the nuts work loose.
They do not preach that His Pity allows them to drop their job when they damn-well choose.
As in the thronged and the lighted ways, so in the dark and the desert they stand,
Wary and watchful all their days that their brethren's ways may be long in the land.

Oh, and her revamped web site is up and running. Joe Bob says check it out.
