    After midnight, We're gonna chug-a-lug and shout.

    Chug-a-lug and shout sounds like a good idea.

    During yesterdays and today's testing, we discovered that the code we've been shipping for 2-1/2 years is operating exactly opposite of how its advertised to behave.. and no customer has ever complained.. and the testing machine never caught it.

    And we sell several hundred of these things a month.

    WTF

    I'm going to get a six-pack on the way home, go home drown my sorrows in beer and a BURGER MADE WITH CHEESE.

    Sometime in early 2011, the original programmer changed the code to be backwards and some unknown person changed the testing machine to not complain. Neither person seems to be employed here any more, so we'll never know what happened.

    My boss is puzzled, the production manager is freaking out, and they're trying to figure out how to tell the execs about this.

    Who says programming isn't exciting? (seriously blank face) I have a headache now.

    But... the client(s) is/are not complaining? Then it seems that this function is not as crucial as it was thought to be?

    It's Wednesday, and it's a lovely day for COMPLAINTS!!!

    - Haven't slept worth a darn in 4 days, waking up in the middle of the night

    Went to bed at 4:00am.
    Woke up at 6:30am.
    Woke up at 7:30am.
    Woke up at 8:45am.
    Woke up to the alarm at 10:05am.
    Set it to 11:10am.
    Woke up at 11:10am and just lay there.
    Got up at 11:45am.

    Nothing new.

    Dana


    ...pretty much the same drill here thiod morning:

    Woke up around 6:00
    Went back to sleep
    Woke up at 8:30
    Went back to sleep
    Woke up at 9:45
    All achy laid back down, dozed off again
    Woke up Quarter past noon:

    Must have turned of hte internal alrm instead of just hitting the snooze button.

    Then again I was up past 02:00 trying to troubleshoot another transmap rendering issue.

    I must add that in addition to waking often, it takes a while to get to sleep...and to get back to sleep.

    Apparently only 1 customer has ever used this functionality and prompted returned all 20 units he bought, and this issue was never chased down or thought about afterwards. All this happened before I showed up, and nobody remembers how this came about, so.. excitement and discovery!

    I've been told to make it work the way the documentation says it works, so that gives me something to do tomorrow. The sales guys are terrified that, since this feature is becoming popular with competitors someone is going to order 100 units and end up angry..!

    101f outside and almost time to go home. It's going to be a long, hot ride.

    I'll be stopping for beer and a burger to go on the way, then I'm going to hide from the Big Bright Thing(tm) until tomorrow. Sit, eat, drink, chat online and listen to dance/trance music! A nice, relaxing end to a very stressful day.

    Three day week next week! OMG I'm soooooooooooo looking forward to that!

    ...72° but raining here. Hard to figure out what to wear because it's somewhat balmy and humid, but also wet coming from the sky.


    At the hotspot, watching some cool historical vids of the Farrnborough Airshow in the UK from the 50s to early 60s. The Brits were so far ahead of the times back then. In my book one of their airliners, the Vickers VC-10, and bombers, The AvRo Vulcan are still two of the most beautiful and elegant aeroplanes ever to take to the skies.
