good, because I am still angry at the plain stupidity regarding this

Doh! User has to behave badly to enforce good behavior by programme.
The user *still* won't know where their fucking saved reports are unless
they search for them! Possibly on someone else's computer in a network.
Or maybe not available at all because they were using a shared laptop
at a conference and now they're at home.
HOW FUCKING STUPID IS THIS APPROACH?
I honestly can't believe the brains we have available thought this was a
Seriously, I DO NOT KNOW were reports are saved any more.
WHO THE FUCK THOUGHT MYSTERY REPORTS WERE A GOOD IDEA
WHO THOUGHT THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA?
I AM SO ANGRY ABOUT THIS I WANT A NAME

liar, I protested in the user list (I do not call Geert a liar for
nothing and expect him to be very angry with me in return for using that
word about him but honesty must prevail)
It is possible Geert didn't see the conversation where I complained
about this in the user list but I think it unlikely.

You lose your reports and meta data when you do that. Is it your
intention to lose them? At the moment you don't have the option.

SO IF YOU WERE THINKING ABOUT THIS BEFORE WHY DID YOU MAKE SUCH A BAD
As far as I know you didn't even ask people about this!
What is a book option, what is metadata and so on *has* been discussed
before and I am going to say *you* Geert are a liar if you think it was
I hate dishonest people.
