A digression on error messages
Saturday, November 26, 2005

I was at the library today and a frantic woman asked if I could help her try to burn some files from her floppy drive to a CD on one of the libraries computers. I'm not sure why she picked me; perhaps I looks really proficient at catalog searching?! In any case, I futzed around a while and kept getting messages like "incorrect function" (when trying to view drive F:, er. the CD) and something like "The copy has failed. Please try another CD or give up and go home." Man, windows is

just

so

bad.

To round things out, I came across this wonderful Windows screen shot tonight via 43 folders. Nice.
