I'm trying to retrieve some data from Active Directory
(operatingsystem and operatingsystemservicepack). It so occurs that
-sometimes- that data is nonexistent (Linux box, maybe)... I don't
know how to catch that error (it gives me a method_missing when it
fails) and make it fail gracefully, returning an empty string instead.
What I've done so far is just copy the method_missing from the ldap.rb
to my source code and added an if statement to return '' if the
argument is one of the two mentioned above.. Is there a more elegant
way?

Thanks!
What is the nature of conflict?
