Then, a flyer popped through the letterbox today. It seemed to chime with the constant background "noise" of snakeoil, best practices, my dad's bigger than your dad, etc, etc. The translation reads:
Just when I'm pondering some strategic changes in my work area this pops up!Born with spiritual powers. I am known around the world. I can solve all of Your problems for example with love, health, family problems, business, legal matters, financial transactions and weight loss. You will know how to defend yourself and your family from enemies and how to get your nearest and dearest back into your life. Gauranteed results.
French and English speaking.
I'm going to call the stakeholders and get this guy in to predict where the bugs are! Or even better to tell the developers before the code is written... Gauranteed results? "Everyones a winner", as Dell Trotter would say!
On the other hand he might have spiritual powers but maybe I should follow-up on his protocol experience. Damn, there's that questioning tester alter-ego popping up again...
I can't predict the future but I can be fairly sure of one thing for the coming year: Challenges, problems, bugs to be found and maybe the odd giggle along the way. Bring it on!
Got any good predictions?
