whinging about a coworker, programming stuff 

I don't know how to impress upon my junior coworker any more the fact that the most important part in bugfixing is

_knowing what it is you're fixing_

if changing some random stuff fixes the problem, I assure you the problem is not fixed.

@suivran like when they restart haproxy to "clear connections" with a cron job, instead of admitting that their code that never closes a DB connection is actually the problem. And never debugging their crashing app, on the hour, every hour, after said cron job.
