Error messages; I do hate them with a passion. Especially if they are not helpful at all or even misleading. Members of the Dailtywtf forum compiled a list of funny messages that were either a result of a search on the Internet or an error message from an operating system or application.
I don't think the person who received the message thought it was that funny, for everyone else it may however very well be one of the funniest things to read in regards to computers.
Lets get started with a collection of errors, which mostly do not make sense at all, or are confusing and not helpful at all.
The first error does not really make sense, considering that the process is using 4x speed to burn the disc.
The second may be an oversight on part of the developer, but it is still highly irritating for the user who is encountering the error message.
This one may be a leftover of an internal test of the application in question. Too bad if you do not know who Henrik is.
Well, this one does not really explain anything to you, other than that something did not work out alright after all.
Bad English and no idea what this is about, a bad combination.
This one is irritating as well as you can't possible make permission changes if you do not have permissions to view an item.
A warning that is not that helpful either.
Should you click on ok or yes here, or no or cancel?
I suggest you check out the two sites that I have linked above for additional funny error messages that you may like. Another option that you have for an additional fix of error messages is to run a search on Bing or Google for a related search term. You will find hundreds, if not thousands of images that depict errors that are not the usual types of errors that you would expect to receive on a computer or on the Internet.
