"I can not print from OpenOffice on Tuesdays"
@globalc Ce genre de bug est un rappel que c'est déjà presque un miracle que nos systèmes informatiques marchent à peu près comme prévu jusque là.
@globalc déjà vu but still lovely :)
@mmu_man Ah, I hink I had not yet seen it :)
@globalc I ♥ this bug. It's such a good example of the complexity of technology.
@tsturm @globalc A famous one from my line of work was this: “when it rains on Wednesday’s, the CRM is slow.” True story! The explanation was that the database was rebooted every night and if it rained on Wednesday, somebody had to drive their kid to kindergarten and thus wasn’t the first person in the office, didn’t start the report they usually did, thus not storing the good execution plan in memory for the rest of the day. From then on, the CRM was slow. 🙈
@tsturm @globalc And of course the famous phase-of-moon-bug that impressed me very much when I first read about it. 😀
@professor_stoke Haha, yes!
@yrabbit I guess that's not unheard of in Java and Windows environments..
@globalc probably my all time favourite bug
@nev The other bugs which turned up in the thread also try hard to become your favourite bug, though ;)
