Excerpt of article text...

This is a new column where I share links to a few interesting programming-related articles from around the web. Note that these may not have anything to do with Xojo, and I don't necessarily advocate the opinions shared—I simply think they're worth reading for a broader perspective.

A Most Interesting Bug

The Codist (http://thecodist.com/article/amostinteresting_bug)

Excerpt: The strange thing was that all four crashes were in different places, yet they were always grouped together, with each having similar numbers. Every day... the same crashes at the same rate and in the same relative order.

That's a really strange coincidence, which of course it isn't. I've been shipping stuff for more than 3 decades, so I've seen a lot of weird errors. This one smelled of a common problem causing different results because the crash happened far removed from the problem, like driving down the road and seeing a car upside down without any idea how it got there.
