I’ve just spent the past half hour thinking it was Tuesday. Good that we’re a day closer to the weekend, but I could use an extra day out of nowhere for this thing I’m testing at work.
I’ve been working on testing this feature for the better part of a month and I’m *still* finding things wrong. It’s brand new, so it will be buggy – but I am not the only one testing it – why does it feel like I’m the only one finding things wrong? Out of 19 bugs, I’ve found 13 of them. (I am pretty pleased with the most recent one I found – it doesn’t show up until you’re essentially on the fourth run of the report and only if specific buttons have been ticked on a separate process done before printing. I AM NOTHING IF NOT THOROUGH.)
The good news is that I’ll be done with the main testing, aka the “find all the shit that is wrong” round by the end of the week. Then there is testing all the individual bugs – but, the good news on that is that I can test that in one big dataset and just go, “fixed, fixed, fixed, still fucked, fixed, fixed” so that will go pretty quick.
But my god, I’ll be happy to put this one behind me. It has been an ungodly slow process made worse by the fact that I put together some pretty sophisticated datasets so I could do a big print run to check that it will a) do a big print run and then b) check a fuckton of data combinations within that print run and… it refuses to do big print runs.
Oh, and we’re a week into the Biden administration and I will say, it has been gloriously boring. They’re just doing the things they said they’d do. McConnell is still being a dick, but we knew he was never going to change. Sure, I’d like them to get shit done faster, but we didn’t get into this shit in a week, we’re not going to get out of it in a week.
Welp, time to go to the thing to make the money to survive this capitalist hellscape.
