GeneralWhat is your worst development experience ? Pin

Using a computer with insufficient resources.

A few years ago (more than I care to remember) I was developing a hardware graphics processing module using FPGA's. I had what I considered the final iteration and wanted to run one last round of simulation for the entire design.
Just after lunch (1:00pm), I set up the simulator for 30 seconds of real-time processing (1500 frames) and started the run.
At 6:00pm it was still processing (phew!) so I left everything running and went home.
The next morning (7:00am) it was still running but around 9:00am the software reported the simulation was complete, so I clicked the [Continue] button and the computer then took another 2 hours post processing files until it finally generated an "Insufficient Memory" error message, deleted all the results and terminated the program.
I had 32Gb of memory installed (was 8Gb) and the repeat simulation took just over 1 hour... (my original expectation)
All that for a 30 second simulation.
BTW the design was successful.
Live long and prosper
