Here’s the eror message that every developer would love to drop into their software but would never dare:

[error]Operator Error. Replace operator and press any key.[/error]


There’s been times when I’ve been very tempted, but it is usually a sign that I am lifting my user expectations too high. If you want software that is simple and easy to use, then it needs to be simple and easy to use. So maybe the message should be:

[error]Operator Error. Replace programmer and press any key.[/error]
