Since I was using e-mail before then, I can safely agree with the snark…
In other news, I visited the doctor (cut for details)…
So finally I get to play with the latest pre-beta code drop of a data base product from a large company known by a three-letter acronym. I’d been stymied in “toleration” testing because of so many bugs in the areas that we are supposed to tolerate (for example, accounting records identified with the prior version number). I’ve been waiting with anticipation.
I go through my checklist of errors I’ve found in earlier code drops. And guess how many were fixed.
Yep. Zilch. Zero. Nil.
Now I have to wait about three weeks until the official beta ships. Then at least they will take error reports. So toleration is, again, stopped.
I just wrote a fix, too, that is now going thorugh QA. I’ll probably look at a redesign of a component now, although any implementation would probably not make the GA (general availability) date.
Heck, even my computer-related listservs are dead.
Rename to occur later today…
In unrelated news, I am sick, again, this time with some awful GI tract affliction that defies description, and I will spare y’all the gory details. It’s not food poisoning, because Cheri and I ate the same things in the preceding 24-hour period and she didn’t get sick.
So, as I’m getting ready to do the rename, I suddenly realize that I can use underscores to break things up. But I’m not sure exactly what to use…
So help me! Which makes sense to you?
