The Best Thank You Note from a Reader of My Watir Book

by Željko Filipin

The book
Feedback like this makes me want to spend even more of my time writing the Watir Book and giving it away for free*.

Thanks for wasting a bunch of my time. Next time, before you publish something you might want to check that it works. I've spent 5 hours trying to get this shit to run and I can't get the dev kit (ruby dk.rb install) to install. A search indicates that I'm not the only one having this issue.

Please: take your page down -- stop wasting peoples' time.

On your BEST DAY, you're an IDIOT.

* I am selling the book, but all content is available on GitHub for free. I have spent hundreds of hours on the book so far, and I have earned about $200. Do the math.

Update: I have replied after I updated the instructions.


Thanks for the kind words. Since you have asked so nicely, I have just spent another afternoon and evening away from my family, updating instructions on how to install Watir:

I did it just for you, for free of course, as always. Please notice new chapter, DevKit.
