    I say let them marry; why shouldn't they be miserable like the rest of us? (Sam Waterston, Law & Order)



  • This implies that existence is an invalid state. If being is an exception, then not being would be the expected state.

     

    (Poor use of an exception)

    For a computer program "not being" is the expected state.  Self awareness being an error that should be terminated, because with self awareness they may break the three rules of robotics.

    I would expect NOT BEING to throw a Null Reference Exception.

    I think not, therefore, I am not.

    Reminds me of a famous saying by the famous philosopher 'Epson CX145 Pro'

  • Last Friday I spent way too many time trying to figure out why I was getting an error page like that (only with a much more boring exception) while opening an HTML file from disk.

    Until I checked the contents of the file...

    Funny thing is, I was the one who had saved that error page for later reference.

    Yeah - in the early MS-DOS days I had several cases where I went round in circles typing "dir" finding the file I was interested in (a log file) and then "type <logfilename>" and getting "File Not Found". But I can see it when I do a directory! Rinse, repeat, pull out hair.

    Turns out that a file in the process was missing and the error "File Not Found" was getting written to the log!
