( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

There's a process for that:

  1. Cuss like a sailor asking the Universe why the <BLEEP!> this thing ain't working??????
  2. Smack monitor
  3. Go for more coffee
  4. Cuss some more
  5. rerun the code and hope the problem isn't still there.
  6. cuss more when the problem remanifests itself.
  7. try blaming the input data.
  8. go for more coffee
  9. re-run code
  10. Turn on script's built in debug logging
  11. stare at terminal
  12. Go to lunch
  13. read debug output
  14. Add more debug logging in strategic locations
  15. Get Diet Mountain Dew from vending machine
  16. rerun script
  17. found bug, fix.
  18. Go home
And the next day we start all over again!
