A Label 404

Uh huh.

You know, if you’re ever called upon to test label printers, scanners, or any of the various and sundry other peripherals your software will use or interact with, you get those printers, scanners, or peripherals and test on them.  Don’t trust the developers and whatever emulators they might have concocted.  Then, build a complete set of test cases for the apparatus.  Then, run those test cases.  Finally, make developers fix the problems you find.

Sure, it’s not as sexy as the main module of your shipping software or the Web interface or the other fun things developers want to do.  However, it is the basic thing your software needs to do.  It’s what your users expect it to do.  And it better do it.
