Why am I suddenly getting a strange message from the Enterprise Library "Use large rubbish bin to check shower" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Use large rubbish bin to check shower. Make sure that lever is pushed up to shut off water on completion.
    Tested and passed :- 27/6/02 MRG

    What on earth do those lines mean?  They started appearing in my "Immediate Window", always first 2 lines generated on execution.

    We only noticed it once we started using the Enterprise Library.  Not sure if that's where it comes from, but they are the only reference we've added, and I can't find the text anywhere.

    Is this left over test code from Microsoft?  Or is it a really crappy Easter Egg?

    At least it gave all the developers here a good laugh.

    I'm using .NET 2.0, Visual Studio 2005.

    Any ideas?

  • Hehe, sounds like a dev who got tired of the QA reports.  Seeing it in the Immediate window instead of the Output window points to an add-in rather than a library.  Although there's an option to redirect debugging output.
