A Half Day

Pingping (瓶瓶) is a software engineer, as thousands of other software engineers, everyday he codes, everyday he gets bugs, so everyday he de-bugs.

Today is just a normal day that every normal software engineer would normally have.                                                  

This afternoon, when testing his software, trying to save something he randomly typed in windows notepad, he encountered an error. To confirm, he restarted a new instance of windows notepad, and got the same error.

It's an obvious bug.

So he debug.

Soon he was absorbed in his interesting enterprise of debugging. One round after another, every restart he typed something to verify, until the end of the bug.

It was already mid-night. On his computer's screen, was a long log in windows notepad.

I’m too somehow a night bird. When I occasionally saw it and thought it was interesting, then I made a copy, because I know, pingping is a guy who is always seeing forward, he would let it go and ghost his test system to a fresh, with all data destroyed.

So luck for you, here's the log, also for pingping if he isn't coding or debugging right now.
