in reply to damned solutions

Sounds like a good day at work, if all you hear is enough to make even Andrew Dice Clay blush. I tend to yell at my code when it makes me spend an hour hunting down trivial stuff. More often, though, I suggest unusual punishment to my boxen when they start to act up.

One time, I did find myself having to backtrack on the threat. I was working on a Win2K box at home, and I told it that if it didn't start doing what I expected, I'd install Linux onto it. At which point, I realized that the hardware probably would love that, and I should really be addressing the OS.
