Gray Flannel Dwarf


All I wanted was a box, just one box, and she wouldn’t give it to me!

(apologies to Suicidal Tendencies)

We’re all getting slammed at work, trying to finish up code for a release. Trying to help empty the QA queue, but it seems all the suitable test systems are reserved.

Asking around briefly whether someone might have one I could destroy, I didn’t get a response. I didn’t really expect one, but I was keeping up hope… and then I realised — oh yeah! I could set up a VM.

VM server #1 is stuffed to the gills. Not enough room to create a new VM

VM server #2 is not responding. Again.

This test should be easy to complete. However, lack of resources cause delays in things getting done. Just another example of what kind of bottlenecks occur in software development that can’t/don’t always get easily translated across the chasm to a project management perspective. Luckily, management isn’t wincing about this one little bug — there are bigger fish to fry right now.
