Phrases that make no sense to me

    "Site is down for scheduled maintenance, be back in a few."

    If it was not announced anywhere, then how can the general public consider the down time 'scheduled'?

    "Emergency Maintenance server: 22233"

    If it is an emergency, how could it be 'Maintenance'?

    Is this a topic only for those two phrases or can we all jump in with our own thoughts of stupid phrases.

    Standard IT dude, like in "it'll be ready real soon now".

    "Scheduled maintenance" = the database server blew up, we have no idea what happened, but no point phoning to report the issue as we are currently in panic mode.

    Whatever you want, I just felt like venting after seeing those phrases, this is the offtopic forum.

    "It's better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all."

    I honestly don't understand that one. Surely if you've never loved then you wouldn't know of the pain involved with losing someone you loved. Am I right? Or just babbling?

    I have my illustrator friend designing me custom error pages, and several other things for things like this :).
