Bugs: Product Features or Warranty Restrictions?
Friday, January 09th, 2009 | Author: lisaksimone

Jessica Hagy writes a neat little blog called Indexed - it’s full of interesting meanderings about life that we all recognize as true, but we Never Quite Thought Of That Way.

Each is hand drawn on an index card. Short attention span theater. As the blog’s tagline states:

PUBLISHED WEEKDAY MORNINGS as the COFFEE BREWS

Not all musings are about bugs or debugging, but many highlight problems, misunderstandings, and truisms about life.

This card begs one to explore the disposition of bugs which aren’t solved, either before product launch or after.

Fix, Featurize, or shove into the Product Warranty under “misuse, abuse … or use under improper environmental conditions.”

Heh.

more…

More helpful advice from product manuals and company websites to meet all your technical needs.

Symptom: No sound.
Try this:
Increase the volume.

    An Engineers’ Guide to Cats
    Thursday, January 01st, 2009 | Author: lisaksimone

    Engineers are some of the greatest and most creative people on earth. While stereotypes about us abound, we are also capable of making complete (?) fun of ourselves.

    Many hard-and-fast logical engineering types believe that aliens use cats to spy on us. Cats are incomprehensible. But really, figuring out a cat is just like debugging any other unknown…observe, hypothesize, test, and validate.

    This film is a wonderful introduction to the sometimes aloof and generally lovable felines of the 4-legged variety. From the YouTube site, this film carries the following introduction:

    Two professional engineers illustrate the proper care and practical benefits of cats. None of the cats, humans, or engineers were mistreated in the making of this film.

    It is one of my favorite videos!

    It is quite possible that my husband secretly supports this instructional video, even though he is very vocal about his thoughts on cats - he prefers them breaded and fried.

    You know, like W.C. Fields … “I like children - fried.
