The Five Stages of Debugging

Because it’s Friday afternoon and you may have had a long week, our brainiacs present… The Five Stages Of Debugging: Stage One. Denial - “What do you mean it’s broken!? That code has worked forever!” Stage Two. Anger - “[Expletive], now I have to fix this broken piece of crap…” Stage Three. Bargaining - “Hmm, maybe if I hack this bit up here that will fix it?” Stage Four. Depression - “It’s all broken, it can’t be fixed. Maybe I should just go live on a farm. Is the janitorial staff hiring?” Stage Five. Acceptance - “Whew! That was a rough bug but I finally got it fixed! How did that code ever even work in the first place? (shrug) oh well on to the next task…” Hope you enjoy the Memorial Day weekend!
