in thread The Evil Pleasures of Unit Tests

I appreciate the value of unit tests too, and not just as an implement of torture for the un-righteous {maniacal laugh} <:-) Actually I posted one of our widgets Autogenerate Test Scripts a while back. This makes it hard(er) to find excuses as to why the test suite is not complete.....but still I hear all sorts of great excuses reasons justifications misc BS. Actually thinking about that I should probably post a couple of others (check.pl which looks to see if the test suites are complete and run which does the obvious).

It never ceases to amaze me how a seemingly trivial change in the behaviour of a given function can cause so many unexpected side effects. Good tests save much pain and embarassment.

cheers

[stevieb]: so, it's -34c today, and some of my water pipes are frozen and one burst. sigh
[stevieb]: it doesn't seem as though "there's an app for that"
[ambrus]: burst water pipe sucks
[Corion]: ambrus: Ugh - yes, that really sucks!
[stevieb]: good thing is that both sides of the break are completely frozen, so I was able to shut off the water to the building before any water leaks. I told the landlord last year to insulate that specific area better
[Corion]: stevieb: Our SV overlords don't know what "frozen pipe" means and think it's something like "frozen yogurt"
[ambrus]: huh... what does "SV" mean there?
