Because of the glitch, gate agents were unable to print boarding passes; and some passengers described being stuck for long stretches on planes on the runway unable to take off or, having landed, initially unable to move to a gate.

Protecting an Endangered Species: Design Patterns

Do you know what happens to your cherished design patterns once your application is delivered and enters the hard, wildlife of exploitation, software evolution, and maintenance? Life is a jungle for the application code and health in the ecosystem of permanent software evolution, rapid maintenance, and changing software maintenance staff. It is likely that their life expectancy turns shorter than ever as the application evolution changes hands.
