So many programming errors....

And the problems with the various electronic voting systems employed in the recent American election start rolling in. Many companies have had a hand in developing various parts of the systems, and they are all busy blaming someone else (if they are contactable at all, that is). These kind of programming errors should be paraded before undergraduates as reasons why they should test, and test, and do even more testing, before the software/hardware is put to use. It's ridiculous that such errors are still in systems that are just as important as medical or scientific systems. I mean, those systems are responsible for accurately logging votes on who will run one of the most influential countries on this planet.
