Bugs provide the software engineer?s war stories. While the rest of the population would sooner chew on broken glass than listen to an anecdote that ends with ? . . . and then I realised it should have been a 16-bit counter, ha, ha, ha!,? other engineers love to hear about the nasty tricks our code can play on us. In this piece I?ll explore some of the more insidious bugs that I?ve encountered over the years, sometimes as the author, sometimes as the fixer, and sometimes as an interested observer.

While none of these bugs caused much harm, they illustrate interesting quirks. Along the way we?ll see some of how the C preprocessor works and I?ll give some warnings on the use of timers.
