The F & B Clause

Wednesday 19th March, 2014

Just to add to the programmer’s nomenclature, here’s one that’s used frequently here - “F&B” or more fully as “The Fools & Bairns clause applies”. The original saying is ‚Äö√Ñ√∫Fools & Bairns should ne’er see a thing half done", with the implication being that one shouldn’t pass comment on someone else’s work, at least until they tell you that it’s finished.

In this era of the “permanent beta” and agile methods, one should really say this tongue in cheek, as pretty much everything is “ne’er done”. But worth using, none-the-less.
