    Default Fyi

    Heads up, even though it is a user error, it shouldn't bomb out like that. Just committed a fix to at least give a bit more descriptive error message and handle the crash:

    ERROR: Cannot bind to interface. Do you have something running on port 80???

    See this is a perfect example of what I mean. The programmer tries even harder to make his error message even more readable which is a noble effort, however, 10 bucks says we get this question again sometime in the next two weeks.

    Why should a user read it? There was no pop up box!

    It's always the same, users should only read. Nothing else, but READ first

    You mean "There was no box to click past so blindingly fast that the IT guy can't help" right?
    Still not underestimating the power...

    There is no such thing as bad information - There is truth in the data, so you sift it all, even the crap stuff.
