Leaky Abstractions

Joel Spolsky has written an interesting article called the Law of Leaky Abstractions [http://www.joelonsoftware.com/articles/leakyabstractions.html] wherein he ponders the idea of trying to write something reliable upon something else known to be flaky. Like building a house on a beach. Or your own software on top of protocols and languages and operating systems that are themselves not without issue. Interesting stuff.
