Well, these two have to be mentioned:
Unknown Error -1 (on an old Mac)
Keyboard error (press F1 to resume)

    I got an error once, I think it was on an old Mac but I can't remember what app or why: "An unknown error has occurred, because an unknown error has occurred."
    for $a(-2,12){for $b(0..7){$c=0;$_?hex substr( ef7fa1866706caeff02289402844,2*$_+$a,2)&2**(7-$b):0 and $c+=2**(7-$_)for(0..7);print chr $c;}}

    Keyboard error (press F1 to resume)
    Would you be happier if it said "Keyboard error (Plug in keyboard and press F1 to resume)"? And if so, does it really make that much difference?
