in reply to Useless/Interesting Error Messages

Not sure I did not write this here already. A few years back a friend was working on some school project in Turbo Pascal with Turbo Vision and there was some problem in the cleanup. Everything worked fine, but when you closed the program and all the TV objects were being destroyed somethig was freed too soon and caused a "Null pointer assignment" error. He couldn't find any fix, the program worked otherwise, it was just this stupid message left in the command prompt after the program exited.

The solution was simple, the last thing the program prints, after closing all the TV windows and stuff, is "Made by ". ;-)
