Recover From . . . Is A Valid Hint
Authored by: ex2bot on Sep 17, '10 07:32:44AM

I couldn't disagree more with the comments that this shouldn't be a hint. Just because this may only impact a small number of people shouldn't preclude it being a hint. Look through the hints; there are many, many that are esoteric. That is, they are probably only helpful to a very few.

Andrew's argument against the hint was that this is not a "known problem", yet there are at least a couple comments mentioning they had experienced something similar. That makes it a "known problem."

Typhoon14 complained that the hint submitter robleach did not provide a solution. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe one reason for allowing comments on the site is to enhance the hint, to provide additional information, to provide . . . _solutions_. And that has happened over and over on this site. It's an important reason Hints is such a fantastic resource.

It is an excellent archive, and this hint increases the likelihood that someone searching the site or Googling for "software update safari 5.0.1" (or something similar) brings someone to a possible answer.

For goodness sake, I know people hate change. Doesn't mean the site is going to the dogs.
