Those awful bugs...

Trying to get rid of one of those pesky bugs on your program? Yeah, we've all been there, several times. Can be very frustating.
A good pointer for bug squashing IMO is this: Look for the most stupid and unrelated error you (or whoever coded that thing) could have made. Seriously, it has helped me many, many times. We are trained to avoid logic bugs, efficiency bugs, data loss bugs... but, stupid bugs? Not so much.
When you feel depressed because of silly mistakes, remember, there's programmers that suck so much more than you do. Check out the Daily WTF for some good laughs and to feel a little better about yourself.
