    ... my entire working career of 25 years. There is no excuse for a failure on this grand a scale for a mission critical system, especially one concerning people's health.

    I have HIV and if I miss even a single dose of meds due to some delivery fuck up on the part of the pharmacy, my drugs may fail which at this point would most likely mean death for me.

    Sure, there have been errors in code I've written and systems I've overseen deplyment of, but nothing like Tel-Drug's screaming failure of an initial entry point of data into the system.
