For the last 24 hours, I've been alternating between several moods (all bad) because a gladiator release went to QA with serious logging bugs. What made me really angry was that I asked the team responsible for the code specifically not to make any changes to that part of the code until several weeks after the release. The very thing that I was concerned about happened, and pretty much ruined my evening. I couldn't concentrate at my piano lesson and wound up making many mistakes, even though I had put in serious practice time in the preceding week.

I would not be so upset if this was just a one-time thing, but the truth is, this has been going on for over TWO AND A HALF YEARS. What is worse, the QA department has not taken ownership of testing for these types of bugs, so the responsibility has fallen to me, which prevents me from concentrating on my end of the project. It's very demoralizing. For a variety of reasons (apparent to most of you who've followed our company's saga), there is no way to escalate this situation to a level where it is dealt with in an organized manner with the end result being more rigorous development and testing of the logs.

The company hasn't had a proactive outlook towards just about anything in the entire time that I worked there. Why would you think they'd start now? :)

Sorry, that was a smidge bitter wasn't it? :)

Can't disagree with that, unfortunately. :(
