Safari bug reporting feature: don’t bother if you have a modem connection

To my great dismay, I just read the following in the MacInTouch Reader Report on Safari:

Yes, the lack of feedback [in the bug reporting feature] is annoying. However, you can see if the bug report worked by using the Console application. Open the Console (you should see the console.log window), and file a bug. If it works, you will see a message that says “Safari[nnn] bug report sent successfully”. This can take a second or two.

Of course, I immediately went to my Console Log to see what it said, and the only occurrences of “Safari” that I found were of the following type:

2003-03-04 17:23:35.614 Safari[1318] bug report failed: -1006: timed out

In other words, it is quite likely that all the bug reports that I have tried to send through Safari ever since it first came out failed! I can’t believe I wasted so much time doing what I thought was a good thing…

It probably has to do with the fact that I am only using a pokey modem connection… But still!
