Re: Am I missing something?

Because the user kept proving himself incapable of figuring it out or being told, this lead to the assumption that the user was too much of a fool to release he was such. Thus needed a big show of effort to somehow be convinced that the problem was solved by some elaborate process than by throwing a simple switch.

Think people pressing the start button in an electric car and upon hearing nothing go 'is that it?' The sort that think progress bars actually reflect the work undertaken... or that thinks using a CLI is the very essence of doing clever things (fire up a maven java build through a script and you too can impress most of your superiors).

Annon because I quite like the job still.
