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.
