Unusual earthquake activity in north Iceland, been going for several days
Authorities previously believed eqs were tectonic not magmatic, now suggest there is uncertitude about the outcome:
Yes we used to sign these off in the support database with the id-10T resolution code.
However having spent now nearly 40 years in application development (starting before the days of PC's) I am aware of a software phenomenon we used to call "Daddies Watching". Whilst it no doubt affected end users it was when it occurred in development testing that as a professional you had to accept that it happened. The symptom would be that someone running/testing code would get a repeated erroneous result or an error that should not occur, the developer would be called who would say "that is impossible" "I can't recreate it" at which point normally the issue would escalate to the point where the developer would say "show me" and visit the person with the problem. At which point the code would behave perfectly and never exhibit the same trait again. We always suspected that code knew who it could play up, but realised that when its creator turned up that it better behave!
Now if it hadn't happened several times to me both as a tester and developer, and to many of my colleagues over the years, one would be suspicious that the developer had quietly fixed the code before demanding to be shown the problem, but it was a genuine phenomenon that occurred that we used to call "Daddies Watching" (female coders being very rare in the earlier days).
PS. I'm sure that since the development of Smart Phones that this phenomenon has increased, and I'm fairly certain that my phone has developed a serious personality disorder and is determined to act as erratically as it can knowing I can't do anything about it.
