Topic: When did 'bugs' become 'glitches' (Read 328 times) previous topic - next topic


I grew up with bugs, buggy code...

Now people use glitch, fixed the glitch... um a glitch is a few screwed up frames in an avi/mp4.

So if my code goes funny, am I fixing a bug or a glitch?


They are different.

Bug  causes software to malfunction.

Glitch is an unwanted effect on the software but doesn't has negative effect (when inside a videogame, if you can go through a wall, this is a glitch).

Check wikipedia definition of "glitch".

Fun glitch.  Sometimes extreme violence is entertaining if the person getting violated is an extreme asswipe.  :smiley-red:
