So I am trying to install BugZilla, and just find it funny that there are more bugs in Bugzilla, than the application I am trying to debug.

For example, their install instructions, when followed correcly have huge gaps in installation flow.

Just find it frustrating..it's free, but it's pain in the ass...but it's free...but pain...but...

Haha, that is so true. I painted almost my entire house with rejected home depot paints. I basically bought about 3 or 4 colors, then mixed them together until I got good colored paints.

Here is some stuff I painted with rejected paints. I even painted some decent wall art with those rejected paints.
