    If the problem you find during software testing indicates that a re-design of the software will be required, management will almost invariably push the bugs into the next release cycle and, in actuality, never consider a fix. If it's a multi-user issue or a performance issue (which are also difficult), the likelihood of a software fix is similarly slim. If it will take more than a few minutes to fix, probably not happening, either. Now, if it's simple. can be completed during lunchtime, and appears as if there is no longer a problem (whether or not there actually is), the problem will definitely be fixed. But those are not the bugs Bob Bastard finds...moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • The laser that Dogbert shoots from the space shuttle appears to be loosely based on the Canadarm- a device commonly equipped aboard space shuttles for the purpose of grabbing things and large-scale construction in outer space.

    • When Bob Bastard collects the $50 from Alice, he says he has $100. But you can see the outside bill is a 100 dollar bill --- so how could all those bills be worth 100 dollars?

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Dilbert: Here's one for you, why do women see the fact that I'm kind, sensitive, and caring as some sort of weakness?
      Dogbert: It's merely a function of cultural conditioning. That and the fact you look like the illegitimate child of Bill Gates and the Pillsbury Doughboy.

    • Dilbert: I'm sorry Alice, but he's the embodiment of all that's horrid and loathsome in this world.
      Alice: Just because it's written on a bathroom wall doesn't mean it's true.
      Dilbert: He wrote it.

    • Dogbert: Did you know there are no laws in space?

    • Dilbert: Look Dogbert, I've spent a lot of time working on this product. The Gruntmaster 6000 is my baby even though it bears no resemblance to what I orginally conceived. Are you listening to any of this?
      Dogbert: (not paying attention) You conceived a baby and it bears no resemblance to you.

    • Dilbert: What qualifications do you have to fly on the space shuttle?
      Dogbert: None, but strangely enough that doesn't disqualify me.

    • Bob Bastard: (seeing that Dilbert & Alice moved the Gruntmaster away from the target) Oh, Poo---(crashes)

    • Bob Bastard Would anyone like to join me in a toast to failure?

    • Dilbert: I'm not worried, this prototype is designed to withstand temperatures of up to 5000 degrees.
      Pointy-Haired Boss: Wow, that's almost enough to boil water!
