    Hmmm.

    Just occurred to me.

    Being an invertebrate enthusiast, I feel a bit offended, there is a bit of "ist" attached to the term used to explain programming problems-you all got something against bugs?

    :P


    Haha, I'm 100% obviously kidding, but had never thought about it that way before.


    Surprisingly, of the millions of species of insects, there are very, very few "true bugs", there is actually a specific classification for them, so most things we think of as "bugs" is actuality, aren't.

    its my understanding one of the first computer issues was a bug crawled in and caused a short circuit. so since the first issue came from a literal bug, going forward any issue was figuratively called a bug. dont know if thats just an often repeated myth, or true, but the point is its at least based on something that can happen.

    i guess we could start calling it "dumbass programmer mishaps that were initiated due to the common human issue of none of us being perfect and what we come up with on paper doesnt work in reality, combined with those errors never caught due to insufficient testing" but i dont know "bug" is easier to say and is probaby overall a little less offensive

    your answer is "the only arcade which is not fun".
    any question other than "what is a marcade" will be deemed incorrect.
