Idea for future NDepend features (humor)

Just stumbled on this twit by Jim Holmes [:D]

NDepend is
wonderful. Except when it shows you the truth. Maybe it should have a
“JustLieToMe” setting.


In addition to Just Lie To Me, we are mulling over new other features including:

  • Dont Tell My DAL Code Depends On UI Code I Am Asking Pay Rise
  • Pretend A Lot Of Code Has Been Developed Recently Since I Spent My Time Looking For Another Job These Last Days
  • Please Tell Me Where This %*!){$”# Bug Comes From I Dont Want To Spend My Night On It

but so far NDepend only has the feature

  • Help Me Convince My Manager That The Code Is So Ugly That We Should Take The Time To Refactor It And Write Tests

    I’m currently testing the NDepend tool, probably some results will be posted soon on my blog :) – if I have any additional idea for the ‘NPretend’, I will let you knwo :D

    “Dude, WTF?!”: During analysis add an audio cue that murmors profanities at the users in various languages, and at the end issues a WTF/min rating.

    Boss Key: Replaces the real diagrams and such with warm and fluffy images that say everything’s going to be alright.

    “What would Patrick Do?”: A series of little hint windows that pop up on start-up.

    “Birds carrying a Whale”: Comes up on the screen when the analysis determines all hope is lost.

    I’m suprised nobody is asking for ‘Fix everything button’!!

    - NPretend I Deserve Higher Salary & More Vacations
