Error message

From Microsoft Excel(TM):

A document with the name ‘Book1.xls’ is already open. You cannot open two documents with the same name, even if the documents are in different folders. To open a second document, either close the document that’s currently open, or rename one of the documents.

No such problem with Microsoft Word(TM).

Should I be confused, or just assume that this is Microsoft Standard Asshattery?



  1. Weird, I never thought about that!

  2. Whoa. So I click “publish your comment,” the computer hums away, and the next page I see says “Error message” in bright orange text. WTF? Oh, wait, that’s the title of the post….

  3. Hee! I should use that title more often…
