When writing code for end users, what operator error always surprises you?
  • double-clicking on html pages
  • incorrect data (date/number/etc) formatting
  • not submitting all the required input
  • not reading the detailed instructions I've apparently wasted my time writing
  • not understanding the detailed instructions I've apparently wasted my time writing
  • not seeing the detailed instructions in flashing uppercase red letters on the screen I've apparently wasted my time writing
  • I never know what crazy stunt they'll come up with next
  • code is smarter than the dumbest user
  • Nothing...I don't care
  • What end users? All my code is automated.
  • other

    Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
