|Image of the hung GUI that I uploaded with the PMR.|
Though this bit of negligence was not as bad as my catastrophic faux-pas of the 90s, when the GUI got hung, I opened a PMR and was politely informed by the support tech that, ahem, right here, sir, it say do not use the GUI. I have since closed the PMR and asked them to please burn it, such was the level of my embarrassment. If there's one positive to this experience, it turns out the CLI application is very fast and easy to use, and I'll probably use it over the GUI in the future.
This article was supposed to be a heads up to those upgrading to v8r8.4.0 and applying required PTF MH01560 with the updhmc command, but it devolved into a confession of inadvertently providing support techs with material to laugh about during their coffee breaks. In any case, I hope you'll all have a safe holiday season, and maybe someday I'll write about the two PMRs I opened a year apart for the same issue that were both PBKC. Though both times, thankfully, it was someone else's KC.
