Whenever I see wordy output or excessive logging data, I'm reminded of that old joke about a Microsoft Engineer vs. a pilot. It's thorough, complete, and technically accurate... but completely useless. Found originally back in the early 1990s, reworked/reworded over time, pasted here for posterity, and because I don't want to go following dead links … Continue reading Technically correct…
