A really good article. Thanks, I enjoyed reading it. As someone developing in C++ a lot I know too well what you're talking about. I've seen bugs that defied all the logic and reason. How many time I thought I found a bug in the compiler (and I did a couple of times), but it was just me or my colleague.

When I program in C#, Ruby, Scala or JavaScript I find myself to use the debugger much less. I actually think I've never used the Ruby debugger. I don't even know if there's one.
