Murphy's computers laws


*       Any given program, when running, is obsolete. 

*       Any given program costs more and takes longer each time it is run. 

*       If a program is useful, it will have to be changed. 

*       If a program is useless, it will have to be documented. 

*       Any given program will expand to fill all the available memory. 

*       The value of a program is inversely proportional to the weight of its 
output. 

*       Program complexity grows until it exceeds the capability of the 
programmer who must maintain it. 

*       Every non- trivial program has at least one bug
Corollary 1 - A sufficient condition for program triviality is that it have no 
bugs.
Corollary 2 - At least one bug will be observed after the author leaves the 
organization. 

*       Bugs will appear in one part of a working program when another 
'unrelated' part is modified. 

*       The subtlest bugs cause the greatest damage and problems.
Corollary - A subtle bug will modify storage thereby masquerading as some other 
problem. 

*       Lulled into Security Law
A 'debugged' program that crashes will wipe out source files on storage devices 
when there is the least available backup. 

*       A hardware failure will cause system software to crash, and the 
customer engineer will blame the programmer. 

*       A system software crash will cause hardware to act strangely and the 
programmers will blame the customer engineer. 

*       Undetectable errors are infinite in variety, in contrast to detectable 
errors, which by definition are limited. 

*       Adding manpower to a late software project makes it later. 

*       Make it possible for programmers to write programs in English, and you 
will find that programmers can not write in English. 

*       The documented interfaces between standard software modules will have 
undocumented quirks. 

*       The probability of a hardware failure disappearing is inversely 
proportional to the distance between the computer and the customer engineer. 

*       A working program is one that has only unobserved bugs. 

*       No matter how many resources you have, it is never enough. 

*       Any cool program always requires more memory than you have. 

*       When you finally buy enough memory, you will not have enough disk 
space. 

*       Disks are always full. It is futile to try to get more disk space. Data 
expands to fill any void. 

*       If a program actually fits in memory and has enough disk space, it is 
guaranteed to crash. 

*       If such a program has not crashed yet, it is waiting for a critical 
moment before it crashes. 

*       No matter how good of a deal you get on computer components, the price 
will always drop immediately after the purchase. 

*       All components become obsolete. 

*       The speed with which components become obsolete is directly 
proportional to the price of the component. 

*       Software bugs are impossible to detect by anybody except the end user. 

*       The maintenance engineer will never have seen a model quite like yours 
before. 

*       It is axiomatic that any spares required will have just been 
discontinued and will be no longer in stock. 

*       Any VDU, from the cheapest to the most expensive, will protect a twenty 
cent fuse by blowing first. 

*       Any manufacturer making his warranties dependent upon the device being 
earthed will only supply power cabling with two wires. 

*       If a circuit requires n components, then there will be only n - 1 
components in locally-held stocks. 

*       A failure in a device will never appear until it has passed final 
inspection. 

*       Adding manpower to a late software project makes it later. 

*       A program generator creates programs that are more buggy than the 
program generator. 

*       All Constants are Variables.
Sent by Risto Matikainen <mailto:rmatikainen@xxxxxxxxxxx>  

*       Constants aren't 

*       Variables won't

*       Every non-trivial program contains at least one bug. 

*       Every non-trivial program can be simplified by at least one line of 
code.
The conclusion of the last two laws: Every non trivial program can be 
simplified to one line of code, and it will contain a bug.

*       An expert is someone brought in at the last minute to share the blame.

*       Debugging is at least twice as hard as writing the program in the first 
place.
So if your code is as clever as you can possibly make it, then by definition 
you're not smart enough to debug it.

*       Most computer errors can be attributed to a similar problem - a screw 
loose behind the keyboard. 

*       Whenever you need a crucial file from the server, the network will be 
down. 

*       Whenever you need a crucial file from your hard drive, your computer 
will crash. 

*       E-mailed tasking will always come just before you log off. 

*       A quarantined virus - will be opened. 

*       A chain letter - will be sent.  To global.  A dozen times. 

*       The chance of a virus infecting your network is directly proportional 
to the amount of damage it does. 

*       The chances of getting off work on time is inversely proportional to 
how much e-mail the boss leaves for until end of the day. 

*       The faster you need a hardcopy, the more people will be using the only 
office printer. 

*       General Fault Errors are the "Check Engine" light of computers. If it 
can be fixed, chances are it's not by you. 

*       A patch is a piece of software which replaces old bugs with new bugs. 

*       The chances of a program doing what it's supposed to do is inversely 
proportional to the number of lines of code used to write it.
The last twelve laws were sent by Ryan  <mailto:tkthedwarf@xxxxxxxxx> Sylvester 

*       The probability of forgetting your password is directly proportional to 
the frequency of changing it.

*       It's not a bug, it's an undocumented feature. 

*       The amount of time taken to successfully complete a software project is 
in direct proportion to the amount of Marketing input.
Corollary: Marketing should not be located in the same city - much less on the 
same campus - as Engineering and/or Programming. 

*       The only thing worse than an end-user without a clue is an end-user who 
has a clue - usually the wrong one. 

*       According to most Tech Support people, the most common user error 
message (regardless of Operating System) is ID 10T.
End-users' Corollary 1: most application failures occur between the hours of 2 
and 4 am on a Sunday night - with a 6 am Monday deadline for the project.

you scream!

  out source files on storage devices when there is the least available backup. 
  <LI>A hardware failure will cause system software to crash, and the customer 
  engineer will blame the programmer. 
  <LI>A system software crash will cause hardware to act strangely and the 
  programmers will blame the customer engineer. 
  <LI>Undetectable errors are infinite in variety, in contrast to detectable 
  errors, which by definition are limited. 
  <LI>Adding manpower to a late software project makes it later.

  will find that programmers can not write in English.

  undocumented quirks.

  <LI>Any cool program always requires more memory than you have. 
  <LI>When you finally buy enough memory, you will not have enough disk space.

  expands to fill any void.

  guaranteed to crash. 
  <LI>If such a program has not crashed yet, it is waiting for a critical 
moment

  <LI>Software bugs are impossible to detect by anybody except the end user. 
  <LI>The maintenance engineer will never have seen a model quite like yours 
  before. 
  <LI>It is axiomatic that any spares required will have just been discontinued 
  and will be no longer in stock. 
  <LI>Any VDU, from the cheapest to the most expensive, will protect a twenty 
  cent fuse by blowing first. 
  <LI>Any manufacturer making his warranties dependent upon the device being 
  earthed will only supply power cabling with two wires. 
  <LI>If a circuit requires n components, then there will be only n - 1 
  components in locally-held stocks. 
  <LI>A failure in a device will never appear until it has passed final 
  inspection. 
  <LI>Adding manpower to a late software project makes it later. 
  <LI>A program generator creates programs that are more buggy than the program 
  generator.
