Software Development Paradox: The Closer You Are To Zero Bugs The Less You Want To Test

iTimeZone 1.4 reached zero known bugs earlier today and I feel some paralysis. Part of me doesn't want to test anymore because then I will likely find bugs I didn't know about, putting zero known bugs at risk! The other part of me is screaming "Run the fraking test scripts and ship already!"

So yeah, writing this was a stalling tactic, but it made me feel like I was back in control of why I was feeling some paralysis. If nothing else, at least I got to revel in the glory of zero known bugs for a few hours.
