NO RATINGS
@casner LOL Someone hasn't talked to the hardware engineers enough. It's "funny" (not really) to run across comments and code which give evidence that the software engineer didn't exactly understand the functionality of the hardware he was working on and just "winged it" because of things the hardware engineer told him he had to do to "make it work." Can't make software people too embarassed to ask questions! Knew a hardware engineer who could be very intimidating. Caused the software guys to presume things because they were chicken to reveal, through questions, that they didn't know exactly how the hardware worked. I wasn't afraid to ask the "dumb" questions, because I always figured if I couldn't explain what I was doing in the comments, then I didn't have a good grasp of what was going on myself.
