Probably best not to hijack the original thread further so we can continue this hereBrings to mind one of my most embarrassing moments, when I accidentally misdirected an email to the person I was criticising in it.
Links are dangerous things.
I had a similar embarrasing moment when I had been working every waking hour of the day on a s/w development project for six months. The client had really annoyed me by phoning me to discuss bugs on a Saturday night while I was out having dinner with friends at a restaurant. Needless to say I wrote an email to my boss on Monday morning and then had that horrible feeling just as I hit "Send".
Ten seconds later I flew downstairs to the server room frantically trying to figure out which modem was calling their server to deliver my message. Unfortunately I was too late, but I did manage to call the client's database administrator who said he would delete the email for me.
I was never sure whether he did or not, although I did receive a box of some rather fine wine the following week!
