A Good Reason for Using Lorem Ipsum

Ouch! Spotted this via @robmcm and it reminded me of when I first started programming. One day, under a very tight deadline, lots of stress and limited abilities, I was debugging some code by printing out an error message.

In the heat of the moment, I changed the error message to something along the lines of “Arse….this is broken again”.

Yes, you can guess what happened next. Cue: the phone call from the client when his live website starts swearing at viewers when it goes wrong. Lesson very well learnt.
