Saturday Satire : Writing

There was once a young man who, in his youth, professed his desire to become a great writer.

When asked to define "great" he said, "I want to write stuff that the whole world will read, stuff that people will react to on a truly emotional level, stuff that will make them scream, cry, howl in pain and anger!"

He now works for Microsoft, writing error messages.

Is he the one that keeps on referring to the 'Any key', that doesn't seem to exist on real keyboards?

@Robert, thought of you when I published this... having worked in IT for many years I hate it when one of the MS programmes gives me an error message ;-)
