whatta day

I get in early to use my time on the prototype string and find that someone ran some test overnight and has left the equipment in an unusable state. again. The same thing happened yesterday, though it was someone else who was running an overnight test.

Lots of wasted time. I am not a patient person. Wasting my time and the company/taxpayer's money really annoys me. People need to be a bit more aware of the other users. If they were going to run an overnight test and not going to show up till 9am, then they should have signed up for system time from 8pm till 9am.

Luckily, Lihn was helpful enough to allow me some of her time at 9am to try out my test. I've wasted a total of around 6 hours dealing with cleaning up the system when other people leave it in the wrong state.

Yap...Yap...Yap. Are you still doing software development on that project? Hasn’t it already gone through a complete IQT/FQT Raytheon/CMMI Level 3 Software Development Cycle? Isn’t everything already sold off? I hope Software Development Engineers aren’t performing Software Qualification Testing!!!

You know... "The persons conducting Formal Qualification Test activities shall not be the persons who developed the software."

signed...concerned U.S. Citizen and Taxpayer!

Okay Norm. I propose 3 options. 1. It didn't finish the complete IQT cycle. I don't think everything has passed yet. 2. The IQT people screwed up and didn't test this correctly. 3. There are no shalls regarding this functionality.

As you know software bugs get fixed even after the final software has been delivered to the customer... you know maintenance. As I recall you just made some maintenance changes to some PROMs for a 1970s project.

I don't think the failover stuff has been tested yet. I know it is not working yet. It was just added to the baseline recently. I know the stuff wasn't unit tested, cause this(the bugs) should have been obvious in a unit test environment.

Don't blame me -- I told the users (and showed them) how to flip it back. I can't do everything.

You have not told me, one of the users, how to 'flip' it back. You awake yet? I'm going to the lab now and I had a voice mail from Tien suggesting that something may be wrong with ECP2 and to page you, not him.
