We are a community for software developers. Leave the egos at the door.
No matter how many times I go back to rewrite the thing, the LALR(1) parser I wrote falls down under the weight of its own contradictions as soon as I try to add error recovery and I have to go back and rewrite it again. I've lost count of how many times I've done this. At least three.

When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
He can't, otherwise it is an abomination and not a game.
"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
I have mentioned in the past I have had Jira landed on me, the general response from the learned crowd was 'Kill it, Kill it with Fire'. I didn't really follow that view as I used to have manage tests and documentation using a combo of Access, Excel & Word (fun times), Jira appeared to have it all in one place. However one thing struck me as weird is the 'prefered' way to get to tests is using the menu's Project -> Test -> Plan Test Cycle and then select from the appropriate tests down the side. Fine a little illogical but I can deal with it. This works if you have the 'frame' open, also if you execute a ticket with the Execute button you can execute a test outside of a test cycle, which will cause my Boss to meltdown...
It seems like it has been added to by different people, at different time, to do different things.
Now it can do various things some of which it was never meant to and it seems to be touted by people for various uses it can be be put to, like a Swiss Army Pen Knife, not the ideal tool but better than nothing.
Jira is a tool which is powerful and extensible.
That said, like any tool, it all depends on how you integrate it into your company, and how good the configured workflows match the real-life processes. If they do not match, as with any tool, you'll end up butthurt and crying - But that's not Jiras fault, but someone higherup ind the command chain not understanding how tools are supposed to help employees get work done effective and efficient rather than self-inflating a boss' ego about doing things the way he wants them done.
I only have a signature in order to let @DalekDave follow my posts.
I've ranted a bit before about Microsoft's pathetic excuse for an operating system. Window's only achievement is through marketing and "it's good enough." My customers do not and will not tolerate their machines crashing for inexplicable reasons... my assessment of Windows 10 on a good day is marginal, on an average day pathetic, and on a bad day - criminal. I'm being generous. For 25 years I've put up with "it must be a driver" bullchips, and as a professional by now MS should have fixed their exposure to this issue - practice safe drivers. Anyway, I rant and I want peace on earth and free healthcare for all....
Google "BSOD diagnosis" and you will get a pant load of sites that are nothing more than shills for "magic" s/w that does absolutely nothing. The next major category is anything beginning with "answers.microsoft... " I actually can hope that most of the posts are AI driven, but I'm not sure.
So for those of you who get into the muck to solve or at least accurately identify Windows 10 system issues - what are your preferred sites? What sites eat raw bits and crap ammo when they are done? tomshardware can have some traction from time to time.... crap, I feel an article forming.
There is nothing "free" in life. If you believe this, you believe in theft.
I didn't much like Win 10 when it came out: compared to Win 7 it was ugly, dull, and schizophrenic.
And yes, it still is all of those things.
But ... it doesn't crash on me, or anyone I support - no BSOD, no nothing. Some apps do, from time to time but that's not the OS's fault.
In all, it works. And when it runs on hardware that is designed to support it (like the Surface) it runs very well indeed. considering the number of different hardware combinations it has to work with, it's a small miracle that it ever manages to boot up, much less actually run!
Sorry - but in my experience, it's pretty reliable these days. Even if updates can be a PITA.

The only issue I faced on my latest machine was the mouse would do this weird stuttering and hang up for a second, appeared t happen randomly. I don't know how many sites and pages I looked at trying to get to the bottom of it. I even though for a while it was certain areas on the mouse pad and the optic sensor etc. etc.
In the end, I removed the Logitech Unify USB dongle and paired the mouse (Logitech MX Master 2S) via bluetooth instead and the problem appears to have now gone away.
