I participated in a recent survey. The question was:
What's the Worse Error Message You've Ever Seen?
This was my contribution, which received thousands of up-votes:
A graduate student brought me an error message that said:
THIS IS AN IMPOSSIBLE ERROR. THIS ERROR CANNOT OCCUR.
IF THIS ERROR OCCURS, SEE YOUR IBM REPRESENTATIVE.
I told the student I wasn’t the right person to see, but he should see his IBM representative.
He said, “But I’m my IBM representative.”
I'd like to collect some of these lousy error messages for my book, ERRORS.
If you've got a good (i.e. bad) one, please share it with us in a comment to this post.
Thanks for contributing.
