Great error message

10 08 2007

I have a new title: “Wiki gardener”! It’s a term used on for those who have the responsibility of keeping a Wiki weed and bug free, and it’s what I’ve been doing the past two days with a Wiki that was set up a year or so ago but that nobody’s taken care of since then. Just like an overgrown garden…

Anyhow, while I was reading the documentation over at (yes, Virginia – technical writers *do* read other people’s work!) and testing some stuff out on the Wiki, I got an error message. Standard incomprehensible stuff followed by some possible solutions, followed by this:

And don’t worry – it’s just a computer program. Nothing really serious is probably going on: at worst you can lose a few nights sleep. It’s not like it’s the end of the world.

It made me chuckle!
