comment How do you cope with the dynamic nature of high-level software development?
I agree. I actually work a bit behind the edge myself, and I like knowing that others have batted their heads against it for a bit before I have to try it. :)

comment What about all those coding rules?
Absolutely - and I think if you stick with the advice to focus on why you need the rule, then if you figure out you don't need the rule, you know the team or person came at it from an open mindset, rather than just being defensive due to an inexplicable rule process.

comment Turn away a bug if no reproducible test case exists?
@seansilver - My best advice in the caes where you are recording bugs for someone else to try to fix is two fold: 1- get absolutely as much information about the user and their environment as you can - with the knowledge that this can come down to pure luck - often a customer will have done something that they did not know was significant that can totally change the nature of the issue. 2) learn as much about the area of the problem as you can from the developers - including any data or logging diagnostics you can do.
