Thankfully, we've never had our pipes freeze again in spite of a few days each winter of bitter cold temperatures.
Yesterday, a lovely mid-70's summer day, I discovered that the space heater in my well house has been keeping the temperature in there in the mid-80's, driving up my utility bills, for at least the last 90 days, if not longer.
Do you have any "space heaters in your (programming) well house?"
- That 60's and 70's weekend music show which worked very well when 60's and 70's variety was important to your strategy, a decade ago?
- A value-added short form feature you agreed to run when a prospect dangled big bucks in front of sales, but the client no longer remembers that you run it to get his business?
- Morning show benchmarks which seemed like good ideas once upon a time, but haven't been freshened or tested in a very long time?
Instead, like I did yesterday, maybe it's time for you to turn off a few "space heaters" that only cost resources and have outlived their usefulness.
