[EN] FIXME story

Got some complaint from customer. My program got strange and unexpected behavior in some cases. It is needed to solve that problem.

When I find that peace of code, where problem happened, I become very confused and surprised.

In that code I find next line:

// FIXME: show msg after dbmanager say OK

I’m a bit embarrassing, but in the same time proud, that wrote that FIXME, respectively, thought forward…


  • Always write lot of TODO, FIXME, WARN,... in doubtful situations.
  • Always try to decrease amount of TODO, FIXME, WARN,... by avoiding all that issues (especially, FIXME).
  • Think on architecture of software.
