Hi, guys...something that is now amusing...it wasn't for a coule of hours or so.
I'm working with a group of developers who have been going 6-7 days per week for the last several weeks. Tempers are a little tight.
I get a call from one of the lead developers: "John...we have so many things on our plate, we don't need others creating more for us. We're testing your help in our application and I tried doing a search for a common term and I get no hits."
So...I now try all the different things I can...launch my version, search works fine. Go to the directory where I delivered it to them, works fine. Tried in my subdirectory on my VM partition where I have a build of the product...works fine. Check his directory permission...all ok. For two hours, checking everything, I cannot replicate his problem.
On a lark, I call him up and ask him what term he's searching on.
I use the term Administrator, I use administration. I even use the term "administrate". No place in the document or help do I USE the term "admin".
