06/04/2004: Ever wondered....
what happens when you have a program crash in Windows 2000 or Windows XP, and it gives you the option to send an error report to Microsoft. Our friends at BBSpot have the inside story, and they're letting us know:
Most people complain about getting too much e-mail, but they have nothing on Wendy Cudahy of Microsoft, who receives around 2.4 million e-mail messages each day.There are some jobs you could never pay me enough to take.... :-)
"You know when Windows XP has a problem and it asks if you want to send an error report? Well, if you click the 'send report' button that message comes to me," said Wendy who has been the Error Report Wrangler at the software giant for the past two weeks.
"After six days, I had about 14 million unread messages in my inbox and I knew I probably couldn't catch up, so I set up some filters. That was only a finger in the dam. Now, I am deleting all the messages until I've sorted through these old ones," said Cudahy.
Error Report Wrangler is considered the highest-pressure job at Microsoft and generates high turnover. Three people held the position in May.
If you've come here to comment, be advised: Yes, I know this is a joke! OK? Now, if your comment is something other than "Len, this is a joke", have at it....
