Thanks for posting that. It's very funny.

I haven't looked through all of them yet, so I don't know if it's there, but it instantly reminded me of the ominous Windows error-message:-
Quote:
APPLICATION ERROR The instruction at (hex address) referenced memory at (hex address). The memory could not be "read".

I've always been a little puzzled as to what "reading" the memory is a euphemism for, if it's not actually reading the memory.

Bwaaaaahahaha! I love it. Here I thought I was doing my part to shame purveyors of gratuitous quotes and apostrophes. Clearly, I have been outdone!

Will, you are a true humanitarian.
