Smile Most bizarre screenshot


Hi,

Okay, so, what's the most weird you've had on your screen lately? I just had this one...

It was due to a dud CD-rom, the Live could'nt boot up...no problem, but...admit it, it's a cute message...

Go ahead, post yours here, if you dare...

Thor

On Windows, I regularly get a warning box (yellow triangle with an exclamation mark) titled "Error", with two buttons "Yes" and "No".

It doesn't tell you what the error is. I agonise over the decision every time.

My system is to alternate clicking "Yes" and "No", so that with any luck, any effects will cancel each other out in the long run... :P

...hmm, by the looks of it...it's windows itself...but, I'd have to admit, this is weird, and alarming...if you're on a "production system"...

My favorite was this:

Quote:
Error getting error about error.
It happened because the engineers, who I knew, had not programmed a message for the error message about the error.
