    Uniform 5 Echo Romeo Errors

    How many people have done the classis cold trick of telling someone who claims to know about IT that they have a: -

    "Uniform 5 Echo Romeo" error

    only for them to go "Oh yer, thats what I thought..."

    Classic one today when a head of IT fell straight into the trap.

    One born everyday.

    Anyone got any other good multi meaning error codes I can add to my arsenal.

    Cheers

    James

    There's a whole bunch of them on here somewhere.

    ID 10 T error comes to mind, as does PICNIC.

    Layer 8 issue.

    Also had a number of issue relating to the nut (or knob...) behind the keyboard/mouse.
