Friday Joke : Compiling? Coffee Time

I must say, I partially miss those days as a junior programmer, where a build of your system would take 20 minutes on your local machine and you could slack off for a coffee and a cigarette (I used to smoke back then). The professional in me must say though that we have it better these days as server builds and continuous integration make the feedback time on a build so much faster these days. 🙂

Funny Code Comments

I came across this StackOverflow page asking what the best comments were that people had encountered. Some of the replies are hilarious. I particularly like :

// somedev1 -  6/7/02 Adding temporary tracking of Login screen
// somedev2 -  5/22/07 Temporary my ass
//When I wrote this, only God and I understood what I was doing
//Now, God only knows
stop(); // Hammertime!
// Replaces with spaces the braces in cases where braces in places cause stasis 
   $str = str_replace(array("\{","\}")," ",$str);

Maybe I need to get out more!

The 3 Laws of Testing

Asimov's IRobot
Asimov’s IRobot

A tester colleague of mine, sent me this little play on Asimov’s 3 Laws of Robotics. They made me smile, so I thought I would share them.

  1. A Tester may not injure a Developer or, through inaction, allow a Developer to come to harm.
  2. A Tester must obey orders given it by BA’s except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
  3. A Tester must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law. 

It’s good to see our testing colleagues have developers backs covered. 😉
