    I just ran into this rather... interesting... error message:

    I can't tell if that's an Easter Egg or... does anyone not think it seems weirdly chatty?

    I agree. I always write weird error messages and alerts. Still, I find it unusual for something from Core Foundation.

    The odd thing is bound to slip through to production. The real gold mine for passive aggression is within the comments though. You'd be surprised at what can hide in the comments in even enterprise software :D

    Long running funny example http://www.vidarholen.net/contents/wordcount/

    It's the linux kernel swear word counter.

    There are definately some interesting messages :p

    Take iTunes here
    Code:
    iTunes: AMDeviceConnect (thread 0x118fba000): This is not the droid you're looking for (is actually com.apple.mobile.restored). Move along, move along.
