"Doesn't Homer work a standard eighteen-hour day? ... But he does work every day, right?" -- Manjula

"You can run, but you can't glide!" -- Homer to frightened city dwellers (but also me with respect to bugs)...

When I'm struggling with my [test] coding, it seems like three things happen:

  1. I listen to increasingly "harder" music: trance, funky breaks, dark breaks, drum & bass, hard drum & bass, etc.
  2. My variables tend to become repeated words/syllables: string xmlxml, int sizesize, Message mmm, etc.
  3. My methods tend to have VeryLongNamesWithLotsOfDescription, etc.

Dwight: "I heard alcohol makes you stupid."
Fry: "No, I'm... doesn't."

Dwight: "Who's the target consumer?"
Professor: "There is no target consumer... only targets."

Summary of the Annoying PowerPoint Survey. "Lose the black background (and the white one) and talk to a designer." [ - Scott Hanselman's Weblog]

It seems like most of the decks I see used internally (and up the management hierarchy) are "plain" / default design.pot [black text + white background]. When things start to go outside of the team (or public), then things start to look a little bit more colorful.

Personally, I like "plain": if it's a choice between me finding bugs and me spending time experimenting with color schemes/formatting, I lean towards finding bugs. Of course, my design skills are spartan at best.

James Joyce: Why C Is Not My Favourite Programming Language. [Scripting News]

Hilarious... "All whitespace is equivalent except in certain situations."

All pairs of parameters. Interesting note from Tim van Tongeren:
Based on this information we can determine: Of the 383 medical devices recalled by the FDA between 1983 and 1997, 106 (27.6%) of the bugs could have been caught by testing all pairs of parameter settings.

[Exploration Through Example]

Note to self: if I have a medical device installed, review the test plan first.

They're remaking The Manchurian Candidate?

Jonathan Demme + Denzel Washington... that's good.

But, no Frank Sinatra... that's bad.
