Where are monsters in call stacks

  1. kxz: I spent about 15 minutes running into an obscure bug in some image manipulation library I was using
  2. kxz: I was so tired that I wondered to myself “is this real, or am I having a bad dream”
  3. xeniera: it’s really sad when dreaming about obscure bugs is something that seems plausible
  4. kxz: well, debugging particularly bad issues has a lot in common with dreaming
  5. kxz: things don’t work like they’re supposed to, you wander around lost someplace with no clear logic, and the directions you get ultimately point you somewhere totally useless
