I recall a co-worker who had the reputation of being able to break
just about anything, even if he didn't understand its function
precisely--his mind just worked that way. People like that are worth
more than their weight in gold. After you worked over your project,
being absolutely certain in its bullet-proofness, it was ready for
Ed, who'd usually manage to destroy it in about a half-hour. He
thought it was loads of fun.
The worst person to write test code is the person who programmed the
application. Unfortunately, most of us don't have the luxury of
having extra people for testing.
