Microsoft Error Messages!
There was once a young man who, in his youth, professed his desire to become a great writer.When asked to define "great" he said, "I want to write stuff that the whole world will read, stuff that people will react to on a truly emotional level, stuff that will make them scream, cry, howl in pain and anger!" He now works for Microsoft, writing error messages.:)

Ah what more can I better say to welcome you all to the lovely world of error messages and Micrsoft. I think both these words should ideally coined next to one another in the thesaurus!
Here are some of the lovely error messages, look at it have fun (no offense meant to anyone) and let me know if you faced any such crazy and weird messages!


This happened in December 2002 and David then writes : " A colleague of mine had this error whilst using Visual Basic... What's a zombie state? Are there also vampire states?" :) Now thats one very good question to be researched on!

How much deep? A 100 feet? Well I guess this computer must have been taught vacabulary. It think it got confused with not having enough space as being too deep! :)

This error happened when a guy was trying to Install a CD labelled "The Road Ahead". Thank God he dint have a CD titled "Men are Intelligent" - the system would have crashed! :)

I dont know if thats French or Spanish, but I know for sure that my computer has multi lingual capabilities :)

I think the computer must have been intelligent and realized that guy who was using was a real dumb-head! Hey! thats ok you dont need to prove it by displaying the same error message 4 times :)!

And to top all is this one!

I know about Aritifically Intelligent machines and machines that work a thousand times faster than a human mind, but this seems to have conscience - Oh my gosh how frankly it admits there is no error - chooo chweet! :)

I myself(ha thats a bad english to pronouns should never go together, but who cares) left a comment here:

If you are unable to see those pictures just click on them and it will give you an expanded view. If the pictures are taking a long time - please be patent. If you still dont see any pictures, then check your computer there is a problem! :)

Hilarious, especially the introduction.

About the "Road Ahead," it's funny because "Road Ahead" is a book by Bill Gates :)
