Not a good sign

At the end of lunch today at a Chinese restaurant, I cracked open the obligatory fortune cookie to learn what a stale, shrink-wrapped, mass-produced dessert could portend.

It was empty.

I ask for insight into my fate, and the gods answer in their infinite wisdom, "Mu".

Coming after a big launch at work, I really didn't know what to think about this one.  Can't I just get one cookie tell me "Your launch will be great success.  And the Rockets will win tonight."  Is that really too much to ask?

It's just the universe's way of saying: You make your own fortune.

Who needs a fortune cookie when you have automated unit tests?

This happened to me, for the first time in my life, just a few weeks ago. Very weird feeling. Maybe it was a corporate f-up -- probably they are engaging in goykapDD and it bit them in the cookies.

The best fortune I ever got in a cookie said "Ignore previous cookie" so I wouldn't worry about it

Legacy code = no tests = karma, baby
