Discussion on: What's the longest you've ever spent debugging a single bug?

Once I was working on a project that used ElasticSearch. I was changing some things in a list page and noticed that the results were pretty random.

After maybe 2 or 3 days trying to understand what's going on, I discovered my local ES config had the default cluster name and open in the network, so it automatically created a cluster with a colleague machine and I was seeing his data.

I don't think it was the bug I spent more time, but it's one I dont forget.

Now that I think about it, it's pretty funny, but it was definitely not at the time. ;)
