Feb 11, 2003 12:57:24 AM Archived Entry: "Right, I am just brilliant at my work"Twice since I've been on this project I've received effusive praise for my brilliant discovery of bugs that I found by accident. Once I was goofing off and printed off a page from the New York Times that, when I got home, turned out to have a footer on it from the software I am testing. The second time I was verifying that a bug was fixed and just happened to look at the single report out of 550 that had an instance of a certain data type I had never seen before that caused an obvious problem (look, George, it says 0 + 0 = 21) that I did not deserve credit for finding. I hope these folks think I am just Super Woman when the truth is I am just Super Lucky.
