0.2 lines of code per hour

August 20, 2008 Leave a comment

I often try to communicate to my students that development can be a slow process sometimes, recounting stories about “bad days” when you change only a single line of code.  Well today we actually had one of those days.  Logan, a co-worker of mine did most of the grueling investigation and eventually found out that

TCPSocket.do_not_reverse_lookup=true

makes FTP connections on Windows not suck (ala 6 second delay on each request).  At least I’m pretty sure there’s no bugs hiding in that one line of code.  We’ll add some tests just to be sure.
