You melted your computer!

Setting the ABG_INIT to 250 was enough to freeze your computer long enough for you to take that long break. Unfortunately, you returned to fire alarms and the smell of melted plastic and burning metal because it was also too large for your computer and the keyboard has melted inwards revealing molten metal! Your office is filled with toxic fumes and the fire alarm is going off. Everyone immediately figures out it’s you and can’t believe you were so dumb to set ABG_INIT to 250 like a noob.

Looks like you can’t debug that legacy code without a computer.

If you want to redeem yourself, you can try again 🙁

B McGraw has lived a long and successful professional life as a software developer and researcher. After completing his BS in spaghetti coding at the department of the dark arts at Cranberry Lemon in 2005 he wasted no time in getting a masters in debugging by print statement in 2008 and obtaining his PhD with research in screwing up repos on Github in 2014. That's when he could finally get paid. In 2018 B McGraw finally made the big step of defaulting on his student loans and began advancing his career by adding his name on other people's research papers after finding one grammatical mistake in the Peer Review process.
