Twelve Bugs of Christmas
Posted in Quotes
Forenoon watch, 8 bells (12:26 pm)

For the twelfth bug of Christmas, my manager said to me:
Tell them it's a feature
Say it's not supported
Change the documentation
Blame it on the hardware
Find a way around it
Say they need an upgrade
Reinstall the software
Ask for a dump
Run with the debugger
Try to reproduce it
Ask them how they did it and
See if they can do it again.

Laptop Extravaganza

Forenoon watch, 8 bells (12:24 pm)

Our laptops (all twelve) got in today, ahead of schedule. Now I've got to clean all the junk software that Dell puts on them and install our software, etc. Lots of fun, this will take me all day today and probably tomorrow, too.

We had a nice video card go bad today, I pulled it from AS's computer last week, and something must have happened to it on her desk, because when I reinstalled it (at her behest), it no longer worked. I don't know what she did to it... More work for me.
