creating spurious messages - to slow down a program!
Posted on 2014-10-14
Hi - this may amuse some experts. I have a java app which copies a file from x to y (to resolve a BDE problem, if interested). However it only takes a fraction of a second. It needs only run once, or an odd number of times, to work. My users tend to think it has not worked when they click - so click again, reversing the fix and restoring the problem. I would like to have one of those timer things running, reading obscure nonsense like 'obfusticating' or 'cementing relationships' - anything to slow the process and make it appear to be doing something! Can anybody offer a quick and amusing dialog box, preferably with a nonsensical progress bar to make it look really complicated! Thanks!
