comment What are some easter eggs that went wrong?
@chuck: Yes and no. They chickened out before the final build, but they left the code in. A tiny tweak with an editor, and the whole thing was available.

comment Turn away a bug if no reproducible test case exists?

comment Why bother with detailed specs?
@nikie: I'm certainly glad that all your bosses and customers are willing to bow down to your holy judgement about what features are to be allowed in the software that you are graciously designing for them. Indeed I am so inspired by your disdain of design documents, that, from now on, I am only going to design pong-clones, and tell them that that is what is specified by the seeecret design document that I keep in my head.
