    Re: What drives YOU insane?!?!?

    What makes me crazy is people in the company accepting a work around for one of our bugs that they wouldn't accept in someone else's product.

    Such as: "Uhm, after you run the installer, and before you reboot, edit this config file to enter the correct property. We can't get the installer to do it..."

    Well, would you be happy is MS office made you do that? Then why accept our product doing that?

    To little time and not enough space to list them.

    Biggest:

    Micromanagement and management that has no idea what they are doing.

    Re: What drives YOU insane?!?!?

    A tester who spends 2 hours a day bragging about how experienced she is and how much she knows and how we'll never be able to replace her and the next 4 hours either asking someone else how to do her work or convincing someone else that they should do it for her. I realize that's only 6 hours, but when you're as *special* as her, you apparently only have to work 30 hours a week.

    Re: What drives YOU insane?!?!?

    I hate testing an application that was created long before I arrived at the position, and this application has no requirements or technical specifications for me. With such a large application it's very difficult to thuroughly test it, especially when half of the code and most of the database were written by people that no longer work for the company.

    When developers make fixes and do not check them into source control. The fixes do not get compiled into the build, but they mark them as "Built" in our bug tracking system.

    Ey yey yey!!

    Coming to the table with facts, figures, proof that what I say is important and they need to pay attention and do something about the situation (usually relating to usability or accessibility issues). Then being totally ignored.....
