“I think you’ll find it’s a PEBCAK.”

I’m amazed by the number of people who send e-mail crossly saying that we need to index some database in c:lotusnotesdata because it’s broken.

Uh, hello? You understand that C: is the hard disk on your computer I hope? I assume so, or you wouldn’t have managed to put a copy of the database there. So maybe, just maybe, you should be wondering how we were supposed to index files on your computer’s local hard disk for you? Especially files that we obviously had no way of knowing you had copied there?

Some days I miss the luser-abuse mailing list.
