Location of the Problem

Comments (7)

The line of the day at a board meeting yesterday was from the VP Engineering concerning a customer deployment.  “The customer acknowledged the issue was on their side – it was a problem between the chair and the keyboard.”

    A sibling of another old saw, the id-ten-t (ID10T) error. Clearly best delivered verbally, seeing it in written form spoils the punchline.

    Very good. LOL.

    I used to work with an engineer who used to watch people do things on (or to) computers and simply shake his head and say, “PIBCAK.” Then he’d just walk away. He told me later it meant “problem is between chair and keyboard” and tended to spare many feelings. I use it often. Feel free.
