One lousy programmer!!!

He who programmed us is having fun from above us. We are nothing but machines; pre-programmed (God is not a great programmer; all His programs have bugs!), helpless and vulnerable to attacks that other programs may cause us. And the programmer instead of working on fixing the bugs just sits up there and keeps writing new programs! I am alarmed to know that is no sign of User Acceptance Testing whatsoever.

The program environment is mind-boggling enough – so many interdependent programs, so many joins, so many mutually exclusive sets, so many undeclared variables, dangling pointers (enough, that is all the technical terms that I know!!!)

Whoever His PM is!!!

After reading about my analytical mind, am sure most of you think I am one of His programs, which was intended to be sent to the Recycle Bin/Enhancement phase, but by mistake was delivered to the world.

This post re-emphasizes the same thing – with an illustration of the bug. All of you who read about the complex flowcharts that my mind draws when faced with any kind of situation, here is something that tells you how much I hate being unprepared. To me all the situations that could happen should be prepared for well in advance. I noticed how I have reached the heights of this “being organized” thing.

I can’t ever put my mp3 player/mobile/winamp in ‘Shuffle’ mode. I HAVE to know what songs are going to be played and in what order. I can’t take it if a song that I don’t want to hear is playing – even if it is just going to be for 30 seconds before I change the song.

I also noticed that I always keep my mobile and my hair band above my head before sleeping. I can’t take it if I don’t find them in their respective places in the morning.

My folders in the PC at work should always be arranged in one particular manner. If I don’t find a file in its place, I get so very angry.

My clothes should always be arranged in a particular manner in my cupboard. Casuals on the left, skirts near them, salwars/chudidhars in one pile and stuff like that… If something is misplaced, I panic (yeah, I don’t just get angry, I panic)

Finally, now you tell me, why has He programmed me this way? Do any of you have such weird habits? Just curious to know if it just me or if I have company!!!

  9. @Dhinu
    I guess I have to disassociate myself from programs like u!!! By the way, even I have the "ONE TIGHT SLAP" module in me.

    Yeah, I am not sure if 'anniversary' is the right word, though...
