The text is hard to read in the photo, but the error message is basically a ‘no more space on the file system’ message. And yes, that really is a command prompt window with a Windows XP backdrop. By the way Microsoft are due to cease supporting XP in April next year, so I guess the Docklands Light Railway will have some upgrading to do soon, if they haven’t already done it.
This is what the screens should normally look like.
Obviously there’s a lesson there about handling your exceptions, but somehow I don’t think you need me to point that out.
Since I actually saw the same error screen on at least two occasions fully a week apart, I suspect there’s another lesson about how you prioritize your error-fixing!
I’ve postponed this week’s planned article, ‘Where’s the Tree’ to next week, because it got crowded out by writing a Pluralsight course this week. The lesson there of course is that things that you’re going to get paid for often tend to get prioritized over things that you’re not getting paid for!
And, before you ask, No, I did not consider titling this replacement ‘Where’s the Article’. That would be silly.
