Failing infrastructure

Monday 2 August 2004

Today was just one of those days. All day at work was the kind of integration hell that comes when four developers all make big changes at once. We spent most of the day trying to grok each others changes to debug one problem after another.

And I found bugs in the parts of our code that were long thought completely flushed out: reference counting, exception messages, engine patterns, and so on. Then, to top things off, when I got home, the main waste pipe in my basement had sprung a leak and was soaking the floor!

Maybe tomorrow the things that are supposed to just work, will.
