What the hell?

I just had an argument with another developer, even though we were both
agreeing.

It has to do with error messages. Currently there is no way of
displaying error messages (because we don't want the user to see error
messages-- it might give the wrong idea). We do have the ability to
internally log error messages, but this particular one is not propogated
from the GPS decoder. It has to do with the validity of the GPS signal
not getting propogated into the position validity test. I agree that it
should be, and I have argued that for over a month but I have been shot
down because it would mean changing things too much.
So I agree that there should be an error message. The problem, is that I
don't have the information to generate an error message. And it took
about 15 minutes for me to get that idea across.

It's a very stressful time right now.
