The more I work with SharePoint, the less surprised I am when I see things that are unusual, bizzare, or even comical. Here’s today’s installation (emphasis mine):
WhatsPopularWebPart: Exception while retrieving data. Exception: System.ServiceModel.FaultException`1[Microsoft.Office.Server.WebAnalytics.ProcessedDataRetriever.DataRetrieverFailure]: The creator of this fault did not specify a Reason. (Fault Detail is equal to Microsoft.Office.Server.WebAnalytics.ProcessedDataRetriever.DataRetrieverFailure).
I’ve written before about inaccurate progress bars and offered my plea for meaningful exception messages, and I suppose in this error I get both my wishes. At the very least it’s brutally honest (though it would have been great to out the lazy developer by name).
