Originally discovered by technicians on crash tests at Cailfornia in 1949, Murphy's Laws spread quickly. They were spotted everywhere: buses always came in threes, desperately needed objects became invisible, etc...
Well, let us post them over here..
These are some of my favorite picks among the Murphy's Laws regarding software/technology. I've taken them from 'Why the toast always lands the butter side down' by Richard Robinson.
1) "If it's not in the computer, it does not exist."
2) "Whenever a system becomes completaly defined, some damn fool discovers something which either abolishes the system or expands it beyond recognition."
3) "Nothing ever gets built on schedule or within budget. Or, all is well that ends."
4) "If there is the possibility of several things going wrong, then the one that will cause the most damage will be the one to go wrong."
But why make you suffer more?! Should not make it lengthy for Murphy also says, "The longer you look at a page, the more the words don't get in." ;) ;)
