    Strange message

    I have just started Spiceworks and during the start up the following message was displayed...

    "Reticulating Pepper Services"

    I don't what the h@ll it means...but I like it...

    ...it may become my new excuse when teachers ask why something is not working...

    As in "Your laptop has frozen while reticulating pepper services..."

    We had a problem with our wireless network recently and I've been assured it was something to do with "blocked children being executed". Good thing to hear in a school........

    From what I can see, there are a few things like this.

    The Spiceworks guys seem to have a sense of humour.


    [Providing it's still there... I can't check it.] Go to the portal, press:

    up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A.

    Sim City 2000 always used to tell you that it was reticulating splines whilst it loaded. Bookworm Adventures has some good 'uns on start up as well

    For me you cannot beat some of the windows/POST messages, I'm sure we've all seen 'em

    Error 404: Keyboard Failure, Press F1 to continue

    This Folder is shared, if you delete this folder it will nolonger be shared...

    Shutdown.exe cannot run because this system is shutting down...

    This one is quite valid to me - it reminds me that it's not just a private folder and that others might be using the data within it.

    It has saved me a few times, I just find it amusing (i know it's not technically an error message, more information)

    This one ages me, from Apollo Domain (AEGIS) in the mid/late 80's, something like doesn't fit through hatch, so I had to Google to get a reminder:

    error code 220009 (tape drive) decoded as:
    "Tape drive will not fit through 25 inch hatch."

    This refers to a large computer manufacturer (former employer of some of the Apollo OS folks) that once bid on a government contract to supply computing equipment for use on board submarines. They lost the contract when the government discovered that the tape drive would not fit through the 25 inch hatch used to load equipment onto a submarine. Anything that won't fit through the hatch has to be loaded by cutting a hole in the hull.

    It's supposed to show a picture of a Unicorn. I'm not sure if it's been removed or changed.

    its been changed, it asks you to "enable drag and drop" when you click yes and drag something a dragon flys down and carrys it where you want it to go
