On errors (to be continued)

I was just uploading a screen-shot to Flickr, when I encountered an indecipherable error message from the Flickr Uploadr tool on my Mac.

The image I was uploading? A screen-shot of a pointless error message from another application, all ready to accompany a small rant on the developer practice of presenting ludicrous error messages to end-users.

Oh the irony!
