I especially liked his "rule" at the end - highlights for me were:
* A week of hard work can sometimes save you an hour of thought.
* The deadline isn't when you're supposed to finish; the deadline is
when it starts to be late.
* Never debug standing up.
* Tools are amplifiers: they allow good programmers to be better,
and bad ones to be worse.
