lol, I got that same message once, I thought it was better than the normal error messages you usually get on websites.

I thought it was better than the normal error messages you usually get on websites.

Wonder if whoever does maintenance for YouTube 24/7 thinks the same...

I worked once as an outhouse (opposite of in-house, pun somewhat intended) language specialist for a localization company. The project manager asked me one day to sit in on a meeting with one of their clients, a three-letter big BIG BIG IT corporation. As the meeting progressed, the PM kept asking one essential question, which he rephrased in multiple configurations, viz. "I need to know your timeframe, so I can ready the resources". What resources, thought I - doesn't he know how many keyboards and coffee cups they have? Only after a while did I figure he was talking about me (and a bunch of other outhousers).

Soon after I upped my rates :)

Ed: Which also reminds me of this episode of Dlibert:

PHB: I have been saying for years that employees are our most valuable asset. It turns out that I was wrong. Money is our most valuable asset. Employees are ninth.
Dilbert: I'm afraid to ask what came in eighth.
PHB: Carbon paper.
