New Order kicked arse that day…

Apparently

I have no idea what’s up with people.  Earlier today I happened to say “I ‘ve just been told the time has finally come for me to leave you all and meet my maker and I’m off in the next week or so” and they went all silly and spent half an hour quizzing me after I reassured them I was NOT joking and I was deadly serious.  Tears and everything.  Women.

I really don’t know what my dad has done to upset people so much that I’m not allowed to see him any more.

Ah yes, I *could* do that

Yes, I have blogged about this before – I *really* need to get a new profession… 🙂

Sometimes, just sometimes as a computer programmer software developer you get really hacked off stuck with producing dumb error messages for Luddite idiots users too stupid to think for themselves to make it clear that something bad might happen when they blindly click the ok button inadvertently make a mistake.

For some reason I was told asked to reword this message to make it less offensive to doltish morons more conventional. Personally I think “Are you sure you wish to save these changes?” does not convey the required immediate sense of danger.

Don’t do it!
