"So, I was walking around campus the other day and I saw a Volkswagen beetle whos licence plate was 'feature'."






That is the one statement geek test. Please don't give it away if you have seen it before. I'll post the answer in a couple of days for those who don't get it. I got it from slashdot a while back.

Yes, it is a riddle or something. You are not a geek. The first line is "the statement".

LOL, you will just have to wait a bit then. I'll try to remember to post the hidden meaning before I go out of town this weekend (leaving Friday morning).

After about an hour of searching on google I *think* I get it. I have way too much time on my hands.

Its a feature, not a bug.



The funny thing is that I was looking around the Spam forum and the 'answer' is one of the quotes in the quote thread.

Laughing it's funny, but I had to think for a while even after you gave the answer Confused I don't think I would have ever gotten this one on my own Thinking

A Volkswagen Beetle is sometimes called a bug. If you make, say a game for example, and someone plays it a finds something really weird in it that probably shouldn't happen, what would you do? Clearly you aren't going to admit you made a mistake, and instead will cover it up, claiming that it is a feature of the game and not a bug.
As another example, if you are making a Galaxian type game and every once in a while you see a red line flash across the screen (when it clearly shouldn't be happening), you might try saying something like "That's just the invisible boss shooting at you."
