Infrequently Asked Questions: Computers


Error of the Month

The all-time best computer error is one from Microsoft, embedded in MS-DOS:

Keyboard disconnected or missing. Strike any key to continue.

A close competitor is the highly useful Windows NT 4.0 error,

The user must change his password before he logs on the first time

But this error message, which appeared during an (unsuccessful) attempt to install Mac OS X Server on a Power Macintosh 8500, is a worthy challenger.
