Déjà vu ?

Post by Spocks-cuddly-tribble »

This Déjà vu is just too funny, it's hilarious: :D
What is the Best Bug-as-a-Feature?

The workflow system, at the department I develop for, was hand-coded by my predecessor in a rather short amount of time, resulting in somewhat unreadable code with a number of interesting 'features.' When I took over maintenance of the code base, I started patching bugs and cleaning up the code in preparation for a new set of features. After I was done, I got a pile of complaints about features that had disappeared, which turned out to be caused by the bugs in the code. So, that leads me to ask: what is your favorite bug that you either can't live without or makes your life easier?

I don't know how many bugs is too many but that point is reached somewhere before however many in BotF is.

If we're referring to just BOTF, then I'd say the "ghost/clone fleet" bug is probably my favorite. There's nothing like having free ships suddenly appear in your home system! :D
