TONT 33043 用实体物品作为提醒

原文链接:https://devblogs.microsoft.com/oldnewthing/20051208-10/?p=33043

On our team, we have a mailing list where people can report problems. Those people could be testers from our team or they could be people from elsewhere in the company. Everybody on the team is expected to keep an eye on the messages and debug problems in their area. The job of monitoring the mailing list to ensure that every issue is ultimately addressed rotates according to a predetermined schedule, and in addition to receiving a piece of reminder mail at 4pm the business day before it’s your turn, you will also find a Mickey Mouse ears hat on your desk when you arrive in the morning.

在我们的团队中,有一个邮件列表用来报告问题,报告问题的人既可能是团队中的测试人员,也可能是公司里其他部门的人。团队成员们都有责任盯好消息,并处理自己所负责的调试工作。监视邮件列表、以便将每个问题都能最重转达给响应人员的工作是按照一个预定的计划轮转的,并且除了工作日下午4点会收到一封邮件、提醒第二天轮到你来做这项工作之外,第二天你的桌子上还会多出一顶米奇老鼠的帽子。

I bought this hat in Disneyland a few years ago and somehow managed to convince the person operating the sewing machine to stitch the name “Dev O’Day” on the back. “It’s an Irish name,” I explained, but it also stands for “Developer of the Day”, which is the title we use for the person who monitors the mailing list.

这顶帽子是几年前我去迪士尼乐园的时候买的,并且设法说服了操作缝纫机给帽子织上名字的人,让他在帽子背面织了『Dev O’Day』这个名字。『这是个爱尔兰名字』,我是这么跟他解释的,不过这个缩写也代表『今日开发者』,亦即我们给今天盯着邮件列表的人的头衔。

One of our team members went on vacation to Disneyland the following year and brought back a back-up hat, which sits in my office. The back-up hat is occasionally brought into service when the primary Dev O’Day hat goes missing, at which point a Search and Rescue mission is undertaken to locate the hat and restore it to circulation. (It’s usually just sitting in the office of someone who was Developer of the Day recently and merely forgot to hand the hat off at the end of the day.)

我们团队里的一位成员第二年的时候也去了迪士尼乐园独家,并且买回来一定备用的帽子,这顶帽子放在我的办公室里。备份帽偶尔会在『主』帽消失的时候用来顶替它的工作,而这时『搜救行动』也会开展起来,将『主』帽重回流通之中。(通常来说,『主』帽只是被留在了最近成为『今日开发者』的某个成员的办公室里,忘了在当天结束的时候交出去而已。)
