I got really depressed today for many many self-inflicted reasons so i'd like to propose we change Rule 2 of Technology to "You will fuck up, and when you do, you will fuck up REALLY REALLY HARD."

    I almost proxy fucked a ROM delivery once. I nearly had a heart attack verifying the binary that had already been sent off to the manufacturer. That would have been bad. Turns out it was ok though.

    I have also fried an $85k prototype ethernet board by sending 5v to it instead of 2.5 (it didn’t have a regulator so that means smoke)

    @FrodoSwaggins I feel that first one in my soul. I don't know how many times I'm sure that whatever I sent is great, until I press the button, then anxiety, stress, and whatever kick in and I'm terrified I just made THE mistake that will end my life. But nope, all is (usually) well.

    PS: It can also randomly "pop" during the night for added fun.
