"Works on my machine"?!

Meet Phyllis, she is certainly some one who does not like it when the builds don't work on her machine. I can sympathize with this... when someone says "works on my machine" all that means is "everything the source code depends on... resides on that persons machine".

As I get deeper in to the practice of continuous integration... not breaking the build would be the first practice to employ followed by making sure anyone who needs anything can do a fresh checkout and have everything they need.
