It would be a worry if they had 2 million lines of c code without any 'bugs'. Something that big will be littered with bugs, it is pretty
much perfectly normal. I do hope they caught all the bugs, but to be honest a piece of software is very rarely ever perfect. Something will come up
eventually in the code, but I'd wager they would be able to fix it from here relatively easily.
To code is to err.
I suppose the conspirators will say that this is a CYA (cover yer arse) maneuver announced early on to explain something that will happen later on. I
guess my mind goes there first as well. Whether it is true or not... I am sure we will never know.
Interesting none the less!
edit on 8/22/2012 by Kangaruex4Ewe because: (no reason given)
given a bug fix could be a fixing of a spelling mistake it would be fun if half of them was just corrections of words like colour into the
americanized color etc and the rest are probably in error handling routines which shouldn't be used very often
but with 2 million lines it would of been virtually impossible to write error free code
2000 is that all they need some award for that. really bugs will come bugs will go but they will never be comletely gone. To error is human no matter
how good you are. I remember the Dilbert comic where there is a $10 reward for every bug found and Wally was going to program himself a new mini van
Explanation: There was hardly anything conspiratorial about it at face value ... but being a member of ATS I have learned to totally distort reality
to suit my agenda whilst remaining straight faced about that!
So I had a little think about those nasty TPTB folk and how they have this weird code where they have to telegraph the fine print of the contract with
the devil, which is some stupid ego challange between the rich elite, to see which of those devils can pull the wool over our eyes, ... and who are
terribly horribly bored and can afford to play with our lives as long as it meets some lofty but false sense of 'fair go' game play.
And then it dawned upon me ... and I yawned and really wanted to go back to sleep but then the rays of truth struck me in the eye that not only did
the boffins zap the bugs in the code before it was launched ... but once landed on mars, Curiosity was zapping rocks with its laser whilst 'looking
for signs of life'.
It was only a short step from there to Intergalactic War [Mars is the God of War] with Alien 'Bugs'!
Would you like to know more?
