HuwG BS: What are the chances of ... (10) RE: BS: What are the chances of ... 19 Dec 10


Incidentally, folk music has got me into some minor trouble in the new job. The software concerns documenting and tracking import shipments. To test a new feature I had just written, I used the on-line form to add a record to the test database:

Quantity: one million
Unit(s): bags
Description: best Sligo rags

A development manager in Essex who found that this record upset the acounting totals for the whole database (as "bag" wasn't recognised as a valid package type), and whose cultural background didn't include the Dubliners and the Pogues, didn't see the funny side.
