and the stress level's high
Your client's impatient
and the code is spaghetti
So please little process
don't you die

Fix one bug, compile again
101 little bugs in the code!

I've got dozens of the buggers...
e.g. "Shut Down the Server" to "Waltzing Matilda"
"Mend my PC" to "Under the Sea"
"No IntToReal" to "Run to the Hills" by Iron Maiden
"Three-fingered Salute" to "Four-Legged Friend"
..and one for the real old-timers: "The Oldest PC In Town"
