make code change
try to re run server
java, tomcat, gradle , eclipse, just kill me, dont torture me like this1

reminds me of an ios bug which could brick the phone if it received an sms with weird chars.
These lynch-pin-bugs where a single byte/char in the right place at the right time can tear things down, are so subtle and fascinate me for some reason :)3
I spent ~12h working on a simple issue/bug.
7h was spent on rebuilding local dev environment which is a clusterfuck of maven profiles, tomcat, some autogenerated degeneracy, and 2 different build systems for JS.
5h spent on actual bug fixing, code reviews and so on.
