    Default Computer trouble!

    I was having trouble with my computer. So I called Richard , the 11 year
    old next door whose bedroom looks like Mission Control, and asked him to
    come over.

    Richard clicked a couple of buttons and solved the problem.

    As he was walking away, I called after him, 'So, what was wrong?

    He replied, 'It was an ID ten T error.'

    I didn't want to appear stupid, but nonetheless inquired, 'An, ID
    ten T error? What's that? In case I need to fix it again.'

    Richard grinned. 'Haven't you ever heard of an ID ten T error
    before?''

    No,' I replied.

    'Write it down,' he said, 'and I think you'll figure it
    out.'


    So I wrote down: I D 1 0 T

    Now that they are going out of business... Circuit City has a similar code they use when someone returns a perfectly fine piece of electronics that they jsut can't seem to get along with. ESTOP - Equipment Superior To Operator.

    In one of my very first programs to ever see the face of the corporate world, the initiailzation errors would all say "RCI_<something", where RCI stood for "Reduce Crack Intake (retry)." They were errors that would not have happened if the user had not been hitting the pipe at immediately before hand.

    The documentation called them "Recoverable Condition Indicated."

    Used to call this a "headset" error. The problem was between the earpieces (sorry, showing my age).
