Avoid ‘Over-think’

‘Over-think’ can be a bit like amateur bird watchers.  When out ‘twitching’ they always claim to have seen a rare exotic finch, when what they are really looking at is a Great Tit.  In the case of amateur script writers they claim it’s a rare VBScript error, when actually they have left a bracket unclosed.  My message is start by looking for the simplest, most likely cause of the errors, checking for typos would be a good place to begin.  Naturally a good script editor helps to identify such errors either by color coding or through pin-pointing the line with the fault. See more on general script troubleshooting techniques.
