Debugging

My colleague Cedric sent me this funny wisdom on debugging computer code:

The Six Stages of Debugging:
  1. That can’t happen.
  2. That doesn’t happen on my machine.
  3. That shouldn’t happen.
  4. Why in the hell does that happen?
  5. Oh, I see.
  6. How in the hell did that ever work?
