Greater number of errors

I have been trained in the university to find the errors of the other programmers, so I was never good to make good programs by myself. But if I have ever seen errors made by the same hand or team, you have them here.

There is one problem (or maybe 2-3), which provoce all the others. So many programmers think that their work (process) doesn’t has influence in the global, and it’s not true. Allways there are influences, in usage of the memory, in usage of the process-unit, in variable names of more levels than you thought, …
