    Okay, I got this error in the source code, when I was viewing a webpage in Mozilla Firefox! I never use Internet Explorer. Anyone, care to enlighten me! Cus I have never seen this before... - Unfortunately, Microsoft has added a clever new - "feature" to Internet Explorer. If the text of - an error's message is "too small", specifically - less than 512 bytes, Internet Explorer returns - its own error message. You can turn that off, - but it's pretty tricky to find switch called - "smart error messages". That means, of course, - that short error messages are censored by default. - IIS always returns error messages that are long - enough to make Internet Explorer happy. The - workaround is pretty simple: pad the error - message with a big comment like this to push it - over the five hundred and twelve bytes minimum. - Of course, that's exactly what you're reading - right now. I'm puzzled!!

    Microsoft have screwed up bigger than that. Look at CoreCLR.

    The .net open source cross platform they are releasing. They are missing release deadlines in a spectacular way and it is fucked up beyond belief, buggy, dependency confusions and seriously zero documentation.

    Shockingly bad M$.
