Shortly after taking a new job, Graham noticed that his new colleagues had a rather peculiar metric for determining software quality: cleverness. The standard measurements of cost, performance, maintainability, and so on, were afterthoughts -- nay, hindrances -- to their vision. Oh no, they were special, and so would be the software that they developed.

One of Graham's first tasks was an apparently common one for the developers there: add an image to the site so that the graphic designer may use it. It seemed a bit odd of a task; after all, the designers had full access to the site, why could they drop their .gif image into an /images folder? No less, Graham complied and sought out the /images folder to place the image in.

Unable to locate this common folder, Graham checked with a coworker. We keep all of our images in images.php, his coworker explained, so just put it in there. Thinking that "images.php" would contain a hint to where this directory is, Graham quickly opened up the code file. To this day, he is still awed by its 600KB-worth of cleverness ...
