The dread "No error." error.

There is a useful program I use at work. It is not useful in that it does what it does well, it is useful in that there's nothing else that does what it does. In certain circumstances, it will pop up an error message box that says "No error." Then the only thing to do is force quit the program and start over from your last save. It is in deep denial.

It's been doing this for years, I was just now reminded that its funny, which is good, because it did it in the middle of making a global color change on a 1159 page book, which was taking a long time. Now I have to start over and try it in 100 page sections. So far its behaved through page 400. Yay!

That's a great error message. "No error! Hey, I just wanted to let you know everything is A-OK, but, you know, I'm going to need to be restarted. Everything's fine, though. No worries. Just restart. I'm going to freeze up now for no reason at all!"

I have one of those on my captioning software. It pops up periodically and tells me that the security key has been removed from the LPT port on the back of my computer. I think the gnomes are back there playing with it or something. Then it warns me to reinsert it or the program will be closed and my work won't be saved. Sometimes it actually does this, which causes me to swear violently at my computer. "Your mother was an abacus, and your father was an IBM PC Junior!"
