Accounting for Bugs in Agile Development

There's always some discussion about how to account for the time spent fixing bugs in a project. I think it helps to view bugs as incomplete features, as in:

"I expected the feature to behave like this, but instead it behaves like that"

So the time spent fixing bugs can be measured in exactly the same way that features can be measured.

Joining CustomWare

My status at CustomWare has changed from subcontractor to a permanent employee. We celebrated with a surprise ice-cream cake with "Chief Toolsmith" iced onto it. I suspect that's something that people are rarely asked to write on a cake.

Thanks for the welcome!
