molaram498839dThat's alright mate we were all young and stupid once.
Tonnoman38739dI don't get it. Do these people just looking at the codebase you can find out what code is relevant, and then just look at it and instantly magically realize how it should be fixed? Like... How do you think that bug appeared in the first place? If Devs can instantly tell what's wrong, how do they even write wrong code?
Fast-Nop3630639dDevs' preferred way to deal with non-reproducible problems: ignoring them.
For example, bugs related to timing or race conditions are hardly ever reproducible, that's in their nature. You fix that by reviewing the architecture and the code.
Maybe it would help if the monthly pay were also reduced randomly, sometimes. Then finance to dev: we can't reproduce your problem, case closed.
