    Well you have to make sure you didn’t forget something important.

    The step “find and panic about errors that you overlooked the first time” is missing! :-)

    @webdev84: True – in my case usually in emails that I’ve sent or posts I’ve made (in forums like this with no edit feature) correcting someone else’s errors.

    I wrote an email, looked at this and checked again! o.0

    What’s wrong with going back and reading what you’ve sent? Don’t see the point in this article. It’s like saying you go back and look at your yard after mowing the lawn. Nothing wrong with that.

    I’ll re-read the sent email when some one responds to it and then I panic about over looked errors I’ve made :-/

    No offense intended, but the fact that there are people who don’t see the humor in this comic is funny in itself. :)

    @rick: We get, it but it’s as funny as Reader’s Digest.

    between unfunny pictures like this and the Windows 8 love fest, I spend too much time marking posts “read” and I’m ready to just unsubscribe my HTG feed as a waste of time. The whole point of a blog like this is to aggregate interesting material, and it’s always better not to post at all when all you have is filler.

    Ushindi, I read your post and wondered what it meant, then started to type the exact same thing to “spiny” using the full words and then I knew, Tis true great minds think alike. LOL I bet he’s had a lot of doors just miss his ass.

    Maybe frame 4 should point back to frame 1. : )

    It’s missing the step where you realise the attachment isn’t attached.
