Saw this trending Twitter hashtag after I posted this tweet:
Internal reprogrammability - Martin Fowler: martinfowler.com/bliki/Internal… #programming
and then, out of curiosity, clicked on the #programming hashtag in it, to see some other tweets with that hashtag.
Was interested to see, as a result of the click, some tweets by various people, some well-known, with another hashtag, #FiveWordTechHorrors.
So I thought up one of my own:
The production server is down. #FiveWordTechHorrors.
because it reminded of a command given in haste by a colleague of mine, way back, on the root console of a UNIX server, in a factory with many people using that server for work:
You just typed init 0. #FiveWordTechHorrors
(He typed it without informing the users in advance, and as root :-)
And here is another one:
Your application crashed. Reinstall Windows. #FiveWordTechHorrors
Here is a Mashable story about FiveWordTechHorrors.
Apropos, this Google search for the term origin of Twitter hashtag is interesting.
Happy New Year to my readers.
