Sometimes Corrupt Files Are Better Off Dead

Coders get a swollen head when they start using their coding skills to save corrupt files from the brink of digital destruction, but some corrupt files should simply be left to Rest In Pixels.

For as this comic from CommitStrip shows us- if a file can be rebuilt from scratch in a tenth of the time needed to recode it back to life then there's no need to call in the coders.

Of course, all of this could have been avoided if the artist simply used a staggered save system... Save often people!
