  • Greatest error eessage EVER!

    I was greeted to this on logging into a kiosk machine. Sometimes, I feel the same way. At least I got a good laugh for the first time today.

    EDIT: Strange that when I edit my post and correct the misspelling in the title the misspelling is still there. Yet when I go to edit it again, the correct spelling is pre-populated in the editable "Title" field. Could some kind admin correct my gaffe?
    EDIT x 2: Ah,"Title" is only for the individual message title in the thread, not the thread's title itself.

        The error messages in RRAS have always annoyed me. You get "Destination Host Unreachable" in the console so you click Unreachability Reason and it tells you helpfully that "The Host Could Not be Reached".

        Almost as impressive as replmon, which gives the date in standard format and then in US format on successive lines.

          Or clicking on the "get help with this error" message on certain Windows dialog boxes only to have the help window open and say "No search results".

          Thanks.

            Or Microsoft's intuitive hardware wizards, which never give you the options you really need.

            “The button saying ‘F-ck off. If I’d wanted a f-ing hardware wizard to read my f-ing mind, I would have configured the f-ing thing in the first f-ing place. Only I didn’t get an option to NOT install the f-ing hardware wizard, did I? NO, because someone at Operating System Central thought that everying f-ing one would want a f-ing hardware wizard to make inane suggestions’,” I say.

                Nah, if I need a hammer I can just go out into the factory and borrow one from Dave Bash.

                  WHAT PROBLEM??? The button says it's OK.
                  1 1 was a racehorse.
                  2 2 was 1 2.

                    My boss' login script displays a message box... he didn't seem as enthusiastic as I was when he first saw it for some reason.

                    "Yes means no and No means yes. Delete all files?"

                    Yes | No | Maybe

                      My personal favourite is when you are using the "Troubleshoot Internet Connection" wizard, and one of the options is "Go online to find the solution.."
