error messages from the past

Computers used to be much more impressive when they issued unfriendly error messages in all upper case. I don't suppose I want to return to those days, but I do remember them fondly.

I'm writing about this because for some reason an old error message popped into my head. I always thought it read kind of oddly, like someone was trying to make it into a two-line poem or something.

MULTI EDITOR DIED, SINGLE EDITOR RECOVERED, CHECK TO SEE LAST CMDS DONE

I'm really flighty, and running on almost no sleep. The practical demands of getting Kate packed up for the long trip West, not to mention the emotional ones, are really starting to get to me.

It would be cool if every computer spoke like God (since God obviously speaks in all caps), especially if the computers also only gave error messages in German. I imagine some version of SuSE linux will yell at you in German, which could be cool. (Might have to install that..)

Otherwise, error message Haiku might be cool. ... once. ;-)

A file that big?
It might be very useful.
But now it is gone.
