Music for Debugging

Retry, Abort, Escape

Andre Gagnon's album Escape is appropriate for ETW / CDF trace analysis. Here's my version of track titles (some of them are also appropriate for crash dump analysis) with my comments in italics:

  1. Non Fatal Error

  2. Trace Dance (Samba)

  3. En Hive

  4. Char, The

  5. L"Debug"

  6. "Memoria"L

  7. Process Hearts (cores)

  8. Holidays (, but always looking back)

  9. WOW (64)

  10. DA+TA Master (Dump Analysis + Trace Analysis)

  11. Concert for 4 Threads ("Concertino" doesn't sound good here)

  12. Toc-Cat-ta of Strings

  13. Bugville Promenade (along bug clusters?)

  14. MOVS

  15. The Sea Named Trace (after Solaris movie)

  16. Catching The Bottle (it is often difficult to find a relevant problem message in a billion-line trace)

  17. Debug Me Tender (DebugLove?)
