i'm so sorry for all the technical issues, i've never done anything like this before!

@lynnesbian nobody in the history of computers has ever launched something that worked perfectly on day one

I do this shit for a living, launch days are *always* "hotfix all the bugs you never saw in staging" days

and that's with people who've done this before, *everyone's* first application crashes horribly right away

@lynnesbian Oh, and: the real world is fucking weird.

I work for a bank. The last "big" project I was a part of launching had a bug where you just, couldn't buy anything from this one, random Japanese tour guide. I was late at the office the last day of the beta, before it rolled out to everyone in the morning, trying to fix that.

It turns out this *one website* ran software that rejected all messages that didn't put the fields in the *exact order they're listed in the protocol specification*.

@lynnesbian Oh and I got there in the morning, after *months* of testing to try to stamp out bugs before we switched everyone onto it.

The moment we hit ship, a bunch of shit broke, because computers are extremely bad.
