Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

On the importance of clear error messages

Published: Tuesday 2004-03-30.

I tried sending a MMS message yesterday, since my new provider Chess allows me to send them for free during March and April.

It didn’t work to well, I got an error message. Unfortunately the designers of the phone has, for some unknown reason, chosen not to make it possible for the phone to tell me what it is that didn’t work — all I get is a general error message stating An error occurred while communicating with the server. Thank you, that makes it very easy to find out what’s wrong...

Man måste ställa in sina settings i systemfilen på telefonen för att få upp alternativet "Skicka Blogg" från MMS. Dessa kommer i framtiden att skickas ut som en setting-file (SMS) från de operatörer som administrerar denna feature. Givetvis kommer man säkerligen att betala för inställningarna på något sätt.

För att blogga idag, kan man skriva in Email-adressen till bloggsidan och skicka MMS som email. Detta kan bland annat göras i din kontaktlista under email/adresser.
