Offsetting Your Bad Code Footprint

Admit it, we've all written bad code now and again.  Unfortunately, your bad code over time can leave a lasting footprint on the technosphere.  If you're beginning to feel guilty about your bad code footprint, do know that you have options!  While reducing your bad code footprint by writing better code is a logical approach; there are some that feel doing so will adversely affect timelines and budgets (regardless of quality).  But even then, you can still offset your bad code footprint by purchasing bad code offsets at  (A thanks to Roy Bradley for pointing me to this guilt reduction technique.)  "The Bad Code Offset provides a convenient and rational approach for balancing out the bad code we all have created at one time or another throughout our lifetime—even when we can’t go back and fix it directly.

Denominated in Source Lines of Code (SLOC), every purchase will offset the desired quantity of SLOC and pave the way toward future code excellence.  Money raised through the purchase of Bad Code Offsets supports the various Open Source Initiatives that are performing vital work towards the salvation of our future code base.

Every purchase of an offset today will take us one line of code closer to our goal of universal code excellence. Banish the bugs in your past as you help usher in a new age of software development."

See, you're only one PayPal transaction away from reducing your bad code footprint!

Hmm, at this point it would require me to purchase approx. $5 million worth. At least then I can tell customers that my product is "Powered by 100% Good Code!" no matter what is actually packaged inside.
