Wordy error notices of death

Don’t you hate it when a machine tells you you’re wrong? Wordy error notices of death.

“I just went to register a product at the Creative site, and got this:

Microsoft VBScript runtime error ‘800a01a8’
Object required: ‘cmdl’
/register/OCXnp.asp, line 212

And just yesterday I failed to buy a product at Buy.com because it insisted that my zip code was an error, and offered a popout menu with ten other nearby zip codes, all wrong. So I failed to make the buy. Smooth, huh?”
