in thread On Chatterbox Echoes, and the Identification of Monks in the Wild

Reminds me of the *old* howler: "The Iliad was not written by Homer but by someone else with the same name"

How can anyone know that the person you claim to be has actually posted the nodes that appear under what you claim to be your name?
...errm sort of...

At some point we have to take things on trust. After all the important thing is the information being shared, rather than the name. And no-one can imitate information content... either it's there or it isn't.

Chatterbox?
[choroba]: The problem was bigger, as the test tried to call a method that didn't exist anymore
[marinersk]: :: ducking ::
[choroba]: because, someone renamed the method, but didn't notice it was used in the test, as the test was skipped
[marinersk]: Well, if the method doesn't exist, it would be hard to pass the test.
[choroba]: later, someone removed the new method, as all its usage places were safe, but didn't notice the test still used the old name
[choroba]: fortunately, it wasn't that hard to replace the method and fix a few remaining failures due to the changes we did to the codebase over the years
[marinersk]: choroba Sounds like a process improvement opportunity; tests may not all need to be run, but they should all be compiled with perl -c before check-in/promotion happens.
[choroba]: so, now I have the test, so I can start making changes in the code. Back to the original ticket, yay!
[marinersk]: I definitely love it when my $current_taask=& taskPop(); if ($current_task eq $original_task) { } is true.
[marinersk]: s/taask/task/g;
