Most programmers are familiar with the bugs that occur in the field but are difficult to reproduce in the lab. I've just fixed a fun one: a photosensitive bug. The system runs fine in the relatively soft illumination of my office. In the field the brighter light tweaks the automatic exposure control on the imager, causing a race condition that locks the processor. Magic. More magic.

In other news, work continues to eat my brain. I am no fun these days. I started today at about 8:30. It's 22:00 now, and I have more to do before I can sleep.

Edit: Knocking off at 23:45. In 9 hours I get to do this all again. Wheee!

that does sound like a bit of a bugger.
