Introducing the Mechanical Australian
Bandicoot: Friend Aardvark, I've implemented the double-double feature you wanted in the parser.
Aardvark: Again, Friend Bandicoot?
B: Well, you keep telling me to re-do it.
A: I wish you would implement addition just once, correctly. But okay, let's see.
B: I even added the new extra optional baker's dozen and a half feature!
A: Uh, yeah. Great.
B: Friend Computer?
B: Friend Computer, "2+2".
B: Friend Computer, "13+6".
B: What do you think?
A: Well, those seem right, but I'd like to try a few others.
B: I knew you were going to add extra requirements.
A: Friend Computer, "65+93".
A: So... can it pass the test suite, too?
B: Of course! Friend Computer, "make check".
C: Test 1, passed.
A: Well, that's a relief.
C: Test 2, passed. Test 3, passed.
B: I told you, it works perfectly.
C: Test 4, passed. Test 5, passed.
A: Well, I want to make quite sure.
C: Test 6, passed. Test 7, passed.
B: There, you see?
A: It is looking good so far.
C: Test 8, 10%...20%<cough>...
A: Here, that sounds a bit strange.
C: <cough, cough> 30%...
B: I don't hear anything.
C: <cough, cough>40...<gasp>percent...
A: That cooling fan sounds terrible! I'd better check--
B: What are you doing to Friend Computer with that screwdriver? Stop!
A: I just want to open this panel and look at... aha!
Dingo: Er, good day, mate.
A: I guess that explains the coughing noise.
D: Sorry. I was drinking me lager a little too fast, and a bit went down the wrong pipe.
A: Have you been hiding in there with a pocket calculator, and, yes, a huge can of lager, the whole time?
D: Just today. Bandicoot, me mate from programming school, said it were only necessary until we got past the test suite.
A: This won't do, Friend Bandicoot. We can't ship Friend Dingo here, or somebody like him, to every customer. The cost in lager alone would be prohibitive.
B: It's no wonder this project is behind schedule when you keep micromanaging me with extra requirements on how to achieve the goals, Friend Aardvark.
