"Something Went Wrong"

Posted by Jäger on 2003-12-04 15:40:09


Consulting my Apache logs suggests that you encountered a sneaky bug: if you're not logged in, you can still attempt to post a comment that'll fail when you get to the last step. I should probably fix that.

(Imagine my distress when I clicked "Submit" and got my very own "Something Went Wrong" error. Turned out I had run into a different bug -- I tried to use a double quote in the title, which unduly confused my browser after my code tried to stuff it within a "". One line later my Perl module is fixed. :) )

Having rejected DOS, we're paranoid about anything that isn't
"user-friendly," that requires some adjustment on our part and a
commitment to meet the technology halfway. It's as if Henry Ford rigged
a bridle and set of leather reins to his Model T instead of a steering
wheel and clutch, and to this day we were still driving our cars the way
a 19th century groomsman would handle a horse and buggy.
