The Power of Stupid...

Stupid mistakes can just make you feel like an idiot sometimes. At my new job I wasted nearly 2 hours trying to figure out why some very simple C# code was not working properly. The idea was to execute the code inside of an SSIS package so that it updates a WSS 3.0 Issue Tracker list. It was simple stuff, but it took me far too long to realize that I was logged in on the wrong domain.

It was not until I wrote the same code in PowerShell that I actually got an error that made sense: “Access Denied.” I mentioned this to my boss who asked me which domain I was logged in under. Then I typed whoami and quickly realized what a dummy I had been.

No biggie. At least you got it resolved.
