Title: I'm just laughing...
Post by: Maximum Ordinate on May 03, 2019, 07:01:58 AM
Friends of 6349,

So Scuzzy sends me great instructions on how to send out a newsletter-pm.  I'm jazzed he trusts me to do it.

And low & behold there's something neat called variables!  It's 5am and no coffee, but I gotta try this!  So I find the variable for forum name and insert it into the greeting.  It's gonna be cool.

Then I get a copy of the newsletter, addressed "Good morning, 6349".   ???   !@#)   :slap:  :wb:

I knew exactly what I did.  I used the variable for user number rather than name and it looks like I'm addressing inmates.   **)

Sorry guys... I'll get better at this stuff soon.   :beer:

best,
Rusty

Thank you for sharing and for the humor!  I was not sure if this was another forum name change (I quickly tried to figure out if it spelled anything on a 1970s calculator display), if we were adding the history of cryptology to the COF ("you see the instructor is writing down his elevation and windage corrections on a piece of paper that he's wound around a stick; he will be able to decipher it back at the firing line just as long as he has a stick of the same diameter..."), or if I needed to quickly grab an "I am not a number; I am a free man!" meme from "The Prisoner".  I decided it was not the latter because given our org chart you would not be 6349, but much closer to 1. 

I sent a work e-mail at 3am today and am reluctant to re-read it for similar reasons.

Be seeing you,

This is why we can't have nice things.   **)

We have been demoted to stormtoopers, does that mean we have to miss everything we shoot at too?
