The Problem With Crutches

Coffee is good for you, as long as you don't drink too much.
But how many of you can't pass the day without drinking too many cups?
How many of you are addicted to coffee?

In the recent bloggers meeting in Microsoft Israel I complained about the pain it is to add a picture to a blog post using the Community server.
The reply?
"Why don't you use Live Writer to publish posts instead of the online control panel?"

In a recent post Doron wrote about his love for ReSharper:
"I honestly can't work without it anymore. It has changed the way I code, and I will never attempt a serious refactoring without it"

There are many great tools out there that can make you more productive. No argument about that. The problem starts when you become dependant of those tools.

That's the problem with crutches - if you ever lose them, you become handicapped.
