It amazes me that the longer society uses computers, the dumber and more impatient we (as a society) seem to become...to the point that messageboxes are an annoyance. Why do I need to be bothered to make a decision?...Can't the program just make the decision for me...you know like AI or in the movies? Laugh | :laugh:

Seriously though, messasgeboxes and documentation while vastly underappreciated are still necessary evils. I suppose the only thing one can do is regarding messageboxes is to not overuse them to the point that they become an annoyance or just something the user regularly clicks through without reading.
