This is one of the funniest comics yet! I wish I'd thought of it myself.

Or the pt_BR quote from Windows 2K that translates into something like that: "This application could not be started be cause the workstation is turned off."

I think this one was the most funny error message I ever got..

Still doesn't beat the old BIOS classic: "Keyboard not found. Press F1 to contunue..."

And nothing will *ever* beat Gnome's masterpiece. You know, the dialog box that pops up and says:

"Error: Success!"

with an "OK" button underneath. :-0

Recursive rethinking the progess

The picture can be extended as follows:

------------- Downloading -------------
Operation in progress:
(#####_______________) 25%

Don't mind the progress bar above, it may not have any predictive worth. The bar will be updated soon.

Re-evaluating progress bar:
(##########__________) 50%

Please wait while the program is searching for a new method to re-evaluare the calculation for the operation's progress bar... (insert dancing elephant here).

yeah, funny as hell, hehehe

well, lets see what they come up with

i do remember the time where progress bar stopped meaning anything and they just helped you be more patient while a 4 hours install...

or, anyone remembers those programs where the progress bar goes back and forth several times?

Windows (even vista if I recall correctly) still has those that keepp restarting from the beginning... over and over. I laugh the first time I saw that at the logic behind it.

This is the first one I've laughed at thus far.

You're definitely better at drawing dialog-box's than shut doors ;-)
