comment Is it bad etiquette to ask a potential employer how they score on the Joel Test?
@Ryan: Many recruiters will take your resume and replace the contact information with theirs. This prevents the company from approaching you without the recruiter knowing. If you interview enough, you will find some recruiter pasted someone else's resume when they intended to paste yours, and that leads to an extremely tense situation when they ask you about something you never did. Sometimes, recruiters will add features to your resume because they want the commission and hope that you'll get the job anyway. There are enough bad apples out there that you'll take precautions.

comment What do you do with a heisenbug?
@SnOrfus: we try to include some logging in our application with the capability to add more details. Perhaps using MS' Enterprise Library for logging; one can configure what gets logged by level, so by changing a number in the config file, one can turn on/off debug code (off for deployment and general shipping code, with tech support telling the customer what entry to change to turn on the level of logging needed).
