I received an email once (from a scientist with a Ph.D.) that read: "Why can't this software do what I want it to do when I want to do it?" No explanation was given for what they wanted. Cool.
Instead of responding immediately, I put an ESP button on the screen. It went through all sorts of fake imaginary synapse connection attempts, then said:
"Connection failed. Item with name "Skull" must be removed."
"In the mean time, please feel free to send a detailed email about your request to the project management team."
That was almost 20 years ago. I visited the same customer just before the pandemic lockdowns. They had updated the software a few times since then, but that piece of code was still in the program, along with a comment:
// RIGHT ON! Keep this for new versions until notified to remove
Well since we are in the IT team (@Vavrik that is amazing...) a few month ago I was on site to a client and my colleague (network admin) and he received an email from a 3rd part sw supplier of the client that state something that was like:
" we cant reach our software web page from the server, that because of the connection firewall, please add the exclusions for the following addresses:
Unfortunatly that mail wasn't directed to me because I'll have replyed in a more... ehm... colorful way then my colleague
For the non tecnical guys 127.0.0.1 is a localhost address... besically the pc/server itself so if a server can't reach itself is "kinda hard" to solve the problem whit a rule in the perimetral firewall...
For the GLORY of TEST! As I'm not a code maker the most I've done is hide my name in spreadsheets I make so if anyone steals them I can prove they're mine. Where do I hide it? Cell 80,085 of course, gotta remember where you left it!
