Maybe I'm just bitter about all the NullPointerExceptions (or C#'s version thereof) that I've been thrown during my 435 programming. But when I went to rate one of Microsoft's pages, I got this error message: "Object reference not set to an instance of an object. We are experiencing technical problems." No one's above the law, and no one — not even the creators of C# — is above NullPointerExceptions. Muahaha!
