I remarked to Dennis that easily half the code I was writing in Multics was error recovery code. He said, 'We left all that stuff out. If there's an error, we have this routine called panic, and when it is called, the machine crashes, and you holler down the hall, 'Hey, reboot it.'
"This field name is not known" - Crystal Reports 8
That error message makes me want to kill whoever wrote Crystal Reports. If you have a report that references a field that should be in the dataset that you pass into the report, but the field doesn't exist in the dataset, THAT is the error you get. HOW FREAKING HARD would it be to tell me the name of the field? No, that's just too helpful. They would prefer I dig through every nook and cranny that you can stick a formula and make sure I don't have any bad field references. It pisses me off to no end.
