Crystal reports error: Maximum report processing jobs limit!

The maximum report processing jobs limit configured by your system administrator has been reached:

Fortunately a post threw me to a reference provided by Ludek Uher and Trevor Dubinsky; senior engineers with Technical Customer Assurance, SAP Business Objects. Though this seems to be an old problem hanging around Crystal Reports since version 10, I noticed that this was just acknowledge and workaround-ed couple of months ago(17th June, 2009) from now.

Process: The un/avoidable!

Why is it that in some organizations, staff do not follow(or should I say "avoid"?) the process/es defined and implemented by the management?

Well, think about it! I believe following three the major factors.
  1. Generally, a process is avoided because of its complexity. The more complex the process, the chances are that the process shall be avoided.

IE8 is whacked!

IE8 is whacked, they say!!!

And I just wonder if the “Microsoft-Programmers” are just another human-beings like us, delivering buggy releases but on-time? And then providing fixes/patches for the latest release? Well, that’s what I recently was hit upon…

For some reason while browsing a message was popped up asking if I would want to install the “latest-fastest-greatest” Microsoft Internet Explorer 8? Well, I thought for a while and then I clicked on the OK button.

It took around 10 minutes for the application to down and 10 more minutes to get the installation complete; but that not it, because it also requires you to restart your pc.
