That One Blog Post That Gets All the Emails

In 2003 I spent half a day figuring out a bad Microsoft error. I hadn’t been able to Google the answer. And I guess this was before the days of Stack Overflow. So I wrote it up as a blog post –

Because I’d been extremely frustrated by the error I included at the bottom, “If you’re having a similar problem but can’t work what I’m saying here, feel free to mail me on – I wouldn’t wish my four hours on anyone!”

I never get email about any of my other blog posts. But Gmail tells me I’ve had at least 269 about this one. Including within the last two weeks! If you find this phenomenon interesting and wish to discuss it further, feel free to email me at 😉
