Tolkien wrote about the evils of industry brought about by a corrupted monotheistic religion (worshippers of Morgoth, and later Sauron) in a universe more complex than such an ideology can allow for (as Morgoth and Sauron are actually members of a race made of Illuvatar which were traditionally regarded more similarly to pagan gods that serve a greater master by the Children of Illuvatar)
I think there's a really unhealthy tendency that I have to want to rip out technology that:
- is legacy
- is hard to understand
by the sole principal that if I spend time working on improving these things I will not be productive enough, and I am concerned. Sometimes, I think, this thought process has virtue, in the sense that I find ways to solve a problem better than the way it was solved before.
But other times, I think that I'm dismissing lessons learned made manifest by legacy solutions.

I swear if I have to wait 2 weeks on a PR because "Ruby scary" again I'm gonna start walking around and smacking people
I will walk you through the code line by fucking line, and it'll take you less time than it takes your code to build in CI, and that's a fucking problem, so help me merge my code in so I can move on to making sure the CI build doesn't take half a fucking hour
I'm incredibly happy to finally be able to talk about this wild thing I've been apart of building for 4 years!

By my code, I designed you;
By my methods, I shall guide you;
By this class, I give you shape;
By this object, I name you!
customerConfigFileHash, rise! Walk the earth once more to do my shitty bidding!
So I'm thinking about ripping out the majority of my company's build tooling and redesigning it from square 1. This is going to be a pretty large undertaking - I'm still taking notes on the way things work now, and understanding what the requirements would be for a new system... but change is coming.
I can't wait.
Golly, I sure am bad at stuff.
Ruby and whatever other language I can wrap my tiny brain around.
