    Please show a little sensitivity. My son used to make posts, and let me assure you, it's no laughing matter to explain to a retard that for n posts you need only n-1 stretches of fence between them.

    Unless, of course, the fencing forms a closed shape.
    Even then. One of the segments needs to be a gate, not a piece of fence...

    Fucking Awesome:
    Incidentally: - The Competent ones are the ones who insist on creating their own Data Structures, Date classes etc instead of using their own - they will occasionally have WTF's....

    Someone who writes inept reimplementations of stuff they get for free with their language runtime or common 3rd party library should never, ever be described as competent.

    Someone who cannot understand why date/time structures and date parsing is complex cannot be described as competent either, regardless of whether they then go-on to reimplement such things.

    You are conflating the arrogant semi-competent with the sensible competent. The latter are hardly WTF-free, but will at be capable of writing adequate code in reasonable time. The former are a rich vein of WTF because they are skilled enough to write complex, awful code, unlike incompetent coders who can't do anything other than write simple, awful code.

    They should have tried HP Service Manager. Not only it costs more than Chad but also takes a year to configure. But finally you have also a ticketing system built-in, sometimes even usable ;-).

    where did they store the source code of svn?

    In CVS, and CVS's source was stored in RCS, and it is version controllers all way down.

    You know why it is funny? Because everyone still seems to get mad and angry whenever someone posts "frist!".

    I mean, some time, probably back in the early 1980s (that's 30 YEARS AGO), people started posting "first post" on usenet messages. Probably a few months later, other people started telling them that they were being annoying instead of clever (and they were right, but that's not relevant here).

    If I had been there I'd probably have guessed that that was only a momentaneous thing, I mean, people find it amusing that they are the first ones to comment now, but in 5 years noone will post it anymore right? Just like all failed and gone memes that no longer appear on imageboards anymore. But no. People started getting mad and angry at "first" posters. They complained and ranted and insulted them. And somehow, now, 30 YEARS AFTER ONLINE DISCUSSIONS APPEARED (and about 20 since they became popular), you can still go to any forum, post "First post", and completely derail a thread before it even started. That's why it's funny.

    +1 for redmine. Free, and I've managed to get it running exactly as I wanted in less than a day. It does bug tracking, but you can hook source code repositories, wiki pages, files (such as specifications), planning of the project and reporting hours.

    Only downside? Ruby on rails. I'm just not that familiar with it.

    Sorry, The real WTF isn't even remotely the code (the code is just plain failure). The real WTF is the management:

    Cost to develop in house (conservative est.): $60k * 8 / 12 = $40,000 + yearly maintenance

    Jira: $0 (10 users) - $8,000 (unlimited users) + support after the first year if you need it and 50% upgrade fee for new versions.

    Bugzilla: Free

    Others: Free, Cheap

    Management: should be canned

    Don't forget relitively inexpinsive dual-shoring option and get custum, hand-crafting system.

    What cheap company are you work for? Why imitate me, you faker?

    HERE IN HYDERABAD, al company is being cheaply manufacture (because of deficience in Rupee comared to U.S. dollar). Also, Indian employe wiling to work long hour w/o a/c and elektricty sometime.

    You are lying. I am posting from air-condituned office. 24 hours electricity and good canteen services. Food delivered to desk, if required. Also they make movie ticket arragements. Come work for good CMM level 5 company insted of sweat shop.

    Who said I was angry, or anybody else was for that matter? The person that writes those posts clearly thinks they are clever, and everybody else knows better... That's all.

    I'm guessing you've never heard of a "wire gate"/"Hampshire gate"/"Taranaki gate"; the gate is a piece of fence (at least when done properly).

    Now I used to use Usenet News quite a bit in the early nineties (before the spam bots started harvesting e-mail addresses, and before the WWW became more interesting), but I honestly cannot remember ever having seen even a single 'first' post on Usenet. Moreover, Usenet is just posts: 'first' is clearly a manifestation of first comments on some sort of blog posting. On Usenet, there's nothing to say 'first' to, because if it's a reply, it's not a first message, and nobody is daft enough to just post a subject that says 'first'.

    Dear PHP-haters,

    I wrote a homegrown trouble ticket system. Back around 1998. There wasn't too much out there at the time. We (the developers) talked management out of Remedy system, because it was terrible and cost over $30K plus customizations.

    The PHP system I wrote ran for ten years with little to no problems. It was in PHP and Sybase.

    After I left due to major staff/budget cuts, it was ported to use MYSQL, and it still ran fine. Then it was completely replaced with an off the shelf ASP system, as the new regime was bent on sucking MS`s teet.

    I have done Java/JSP with Spring/Hibernate/Acegi, I have done COBOL, RPG, LANSA, Visual Basic, .NET, and Adobe Flex with Actionscript.

    PHP with a dash of JQuery, in my experience, is the best for web development. You people who talk bad about it can just keep talking, cause I know the truth.

    May I suggest the nice Cerberus web help desk system? we're using it at work and is quite good and intuitive.

    GPL too, and you can choose to use it right away or buy support off them.
