Memories can be strange. A lot of people around me are probably now having memories triggered by (turkey) smells. I have memories triggered by numbers.
Our Hudson build server just notified us of a unit test failure after a recent commit. It was a:
java.lang.NullPointerException at edu.rice.cs.drjava.model.definitions.CompoundUndoManager$1.run(CompoundUndoManager.java:216)
The line number, 216 immediately hat a strong meaning for me: general protection fault, some kind of protected mode error (to plug my first programming website)!
Of course, that was ages ago, when I worked with Borland Pascal 7, but somehow the number 216 has retained its significance to me.
